About a month or so ago, it was reported that Emma Watson was going to bid adieu to her acting career to focus on her studies. There would be nothing new about that; I can think of several actresses who put their educations over film roles, although I wonder why it seems to be more actresses than actors. Regardless, considering how much Watson has talked about school in the past, it wasn't surprising.
But now the 19-year-old is quashing those rumors. The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince star will be attending Columbia beginning this fall, but she tells Contact Music she has no plans to walk away from acting.
