Heh. Harry Potter star Emma Watson starts school at Columbia University in the fall, and her only request? “As long as there are no Harry Potter posters on the wall, I will be fine and happy,” she says. Emma will be going all-out and living in the dorms, and she’s hoping she gets a roommate who isn’t a big Harry Potter fan.
But co-star Daniel Radcliffe hopes otherwise. “I really hope they are a really massive Harry Potter fan,” he joked. “I hope you walk in and the first thing you see is your face on a duvet.”
Mostly, I’m cracking up over the fact that Daniel Radcliffe said “duvet.” I’ve known adult men with families who couldn’t come up with the word “comforter” when describing bedding, let alone “duvet.” I guess it’s a British thing. Still. I think it’s funny.
But hopefully Emma will have a fabulous roommate at Columbia, and hopefully she’ll manage to stick the whole NYC college thing out for more than a year, unlike the Olsens. I think college sounds like a really good idea in theory, but when you’re stuck in your dorm room trying to catch up on 100 pages of American History for your exam tomorrow as your former peers are walking the red carpet and tossing back champagne, it suddenly gets a lot less appealing.
