Emma Watson, the actress who played Hermione in the Harry Potter movies, may be coming to Columbia this fall! The school’s directory lists a Charlotte E Watson (her middle name is Charlotte), and gossip website Just Jared is convinced it is the Chosen One, who visited the campus back in October but has been keeping her college choice secret. “I just want to keep it private for as long as I can,” she said back then. “I really want anonymity. I want to do it properly, like everyone else.” Also, she probably wanted to avoid people on campus making dumb jokes like, “Sorry, Defense Against the Dark Arts is down the hall,” or “So what’s your major, Muggle Studies?” Or “We’re headed to the West End for a few beers. It’s no Leaky Cauldron, but … ” Also guys trying to pick her up with lines like, “Did you put a spell on me? Because I think I’m falling in love with you” or “You have very enchanting eyes.” Or: “Is that your broomstick or are you just happy to see me?” Oh God, we can’t stop. Someone brew us up an anti-dumb joke potion! Ahahahaha we kill ourselves.
