Emma Waton's graduation

Emma Watson has graduated from Brown University


Emma Watson may have achieved global success as an actress, but that doesn't mean the Hollywood starlet isn't also committed to succeeding in her academic life, too.

And after six years as an English Literature student at Brown University in Rhode Island, the Harry Potter star has finally graduated. Yes, it may have taken her a little while longer than the average student, but then the average student isn't generally coupling their studies with starring in Hollywood movies. Yet somehow, Emma has managed to juggle her degree with taking lead roles in films, including The Bling Ring and Noah to name just two.

But that's not to say this double life has always been a breeze. Speaking to the Sunday Times earlier this year, Emma explained that she found her first day of university slightly daunting, which we can totally relate to (apart from the fact we're not a mega film star).

'I walked into the canteen and everyone went completely silent and turned to look at me. I had to say to myself, "It's OK, you can do this. You just have to take a deep breath and gather your courage"'.

Clearly, Emma got over those early nerves, with this (pretty darn hot) graduation selfie as proof.

Congratulations, Emma!
