‘Harry Potter’ Star Emma Watson Bullied at Brown?

It gets better, Hermione. Sources say Harry Potter star Emma Watson dropped out of Brown University because she was bullied. Fellow students say Watson was mercilessly taunted at school, with students making comments like “Three points for Gryffindor!” whenever she answered a question in class. Watson, 21, who has banked an estimated $16 million fortune from the film franchise, announced last month she would be taking a break from the Ivy League school, but claimed she was just trying to focus on her acting career. “I will still be working towards my degree … it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought,” Watson wrote on her website.
