Daily Dish: Emma Watson Stalked at Harvard
The ‘Harry Potter’ star can’t escape the spotlight
-Kathryn H. Cusimano
Harry Potter star and Burberry model Emma Watson started her first semester at Brown University in Rhode Island this fall, where she was hoping to fly under the radar.
It seems Harvard students didn’t think she deserved that courtesy.
Watson attended a Harvard-Brown football game in Cambridge, Mass. on Saturday, where she was seen surrounded by guards. The reason? The Harvard Voice, the university’s student magazine, encouraged students to “stalk” the actress, and kept up an “Emma watch” while Twittering the game.
The actress reportedly looked “quite shaken” by all the attention. The magazine’s blog tried to make light of their efforts to find the star in a post titled “OMG, It’s Emma Watson,” and added an editor’s note calling the situation “much ado about nothing,” but some commenters were less than pleased.
One wrote that “There is a locatable cause of Watson’s experience at Harvard Stadium and a blameworthy party. However, I doubt we’ll get an apology from The Harvard Voice.”
While another said: “She’s had enough press, and I’m sure she didn’t go to Brown so blogs would post more photos of her trying to be a normal girl. Chill out and just let her be a college student.”
Both Brown University and Watson’s representatives have yet to make statements on the matter. (Page Six)
