Rumor has it that "Harry Potter" starlet Emma Watson may have chosen Columbia University as her college of choice. It was one of the schools she visited last fall (along with Harvard, Yale and Brown), and if you search on the Columbia website someone who has a derivation of Emma's given name is listed in the school directory.
But, that someone could be someone else. Although, Emma has been quite vocal about wanting to attend college (probably this fall). In her recent cover story forTeen Vogue she said, "I've been saying that I wanted to go to university since I was eleven, so if they didn't let me, I'd be pretty upset."
Emma's enrollment adds to an ongoing list of starlets who also wanted to attend pristine colleges. Natalie Portman went to Harvard, as did Elisabeth Shue. Julia Stiles is a Columbia grad. Both Olsen twins spent some time at NYU. Same with "Gilmore Girls" and "Post Grad" star Alexis Bledel. Jodie Foster went to Yale. Reese Witherspoon went to Standford. Geeze, what smarties!
And just because we love him so much here at Hollywood Crush, let's not forget that James Franco, king of the hottie brainiac overachievers, is currently pursuing two graduate degrees at both Columbia and NYU. And, he's already nabbed an undergrad degree from UCLA!
So, do you think Emma should go to Columbia and hang with Mr. Franco in the library? And can we be invited?
