A spokeswoman for Harry Potter star Emma Watson says she will be transferring from Brown University to another higher education institution.

Emma announced last month she was taking a hiatus at Brown, but has denied reports that she "bullied out" of the Rhode Island university.

Her rep said Saturday that Watson, who plays Hermione in the Harry Potter series, decided to pursue a different course not offered at Brown.

Expensive Look

She added that despite the decision to transfer, the star "has absolutely loved her time at Brown" and made a lot of good friends there.

Watson has recently taken time out of her studies to focus on her movie career. She has said that her first days in college were difficult.

The rep did not identify the university Watson, who stars in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 this July, will be transferring to.

Says the president of the beauty company, Youcef Nabi, in a statement: “Thanks to her charm, romanticism and her incredible modernity, Emma Watson has become the icon of her generation. We are delighted by the new collaboration with Emma, who brings a fresh spirit to Lancôme.” 

As a face of this brand, Watson follows in the pretty footsteps of such stars as Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Anne Hathaway.

Most college students go to Panama City or Cancun for spring break.

Emma Watson goes back to work on one of the most successful movie franchises in Hollywood history.

This time, though, the Harry Potter star will take an extended hiatus from Brown University, as she posted a message on her website today that alerts readers to her upcoming plans:

Watson, Emma

As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I've had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.

I've decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working towards my degree... it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought : )

Hope you are all well! Thank you for all your continuing support.

Part two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will hit theaters in July.

While readers continue to debate whether Emma Watson looks better with short or long hair, the movie star has given fans more to debate.

Over the last few days, the actress graced the red carpet at a pair of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows premieres; first in London and then, last night, in New York City.

Watson donned a couple contrasting dresses for the events, rocking a sheer, short, sexy outfit in Great Britain and then changing into a more conservative, longer gown when she flew across the Atlantic. Compare the looks below:

Said Daniel Radcliffe at the event:

“It is a very strange sensation for it to suddenly be drawing to a close... It was emotional, there was a lot of tears were shed... [but] while we will miss it, and we loved it, we are all ready to move on.”

To movie fans, Emma Watson will always be Hermione Granger. They can get a look at her in this role via our latest round of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows photos.

But the actress feels just at home on the college campus of Brown University as she does on the big screen, a fact she goes into detail about in this month's Marie Claire. Excerpts, and pictures, from the interview are below.

On life at Brown: Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me. They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I’m part of it. I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn’t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I’d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.

Well, this is no fun.

A day after a British tabloid reported that Emma Watson was making a play for Robert Pattinson and talking smack to Kristen Stewart, the actress' rep has come out and shot down such a story as "absurd and totally fabricated."

  • Emma W.
  • Hot in Maroon

Robert Pattinson has more hair on his face these days than Emma Watson has on her head.

"There is no feud, nor any hint of one," this insider tells Celebuzz. "This is a complete case of mischief making."

But Watson did work with Rob in 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and they both are British, and... nevermind. We can't even try to sell this rumor to readers.

Might Kristen Stewart be at war over Robert Pattinson after all?

In July, a random tabloid ran a cover story that alleged a love triangle between Kristen, Rob and Anna Kendrick. Now, another publication is making a similar claim, it's just changing one of the sides on the shape.

  • Simply Sexy
  • Very Shy Stewart

Has Emma Watson cast a spell over Robert Pattinson's heart?!?

Heat Magazine reports that Pattinson will co-star with Emma Watson in an upcoming movie titled Darc Arc. This news doesn't sit well with Stewart, as a source says "Kristen worries that he would have more in common with [Watson] because she's British."

It's true. Emma and Rob both share a love for driving on the left side of the road. Scandalous!

Look out, folks. It might be on between Harry Potter and the Twilight Saga!

In a recent interview with the British version of OK! Magazine, Emma Watson talks up Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which comes out on November 19. Specifically, she's asked about a romantic moment between Hermione and Ron and responds:

Hermione

"This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it's been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we're not selling sex."

Snaps, yo! Did Watson just imply that the Harry Potter franchise offers in-depth character analysis and storytelling, while Twilight just relies on the hot bodies of Taylor Lautner and company, while teasing the sexual tension between Edward and Bella?

You tell us: Which is your favorite movie franchise?
