Emma Watson Graduates Brown University, Takes Undercover Bodyguard Along for the Ceremony

by: on | in Celebrities | 5 Comments


Although she's a superstar, when Emma Watson graduated Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, over the weekend she was just like her fellow classmates — err, except for the fact that she had an undercover body guard by her side the whole time. NBD though…

Emma understandably wanted to participate in Brown's commencement with as little attention drawn to her as possible, so she, like her Harry Potter counterpart would have, came up with a killer plan. Unfortunately, using an invisibility cloak was impossible, so her personal bodyguard donned a cap and gown throughout the ceremony and blended in perfectly with the sea of graduates. It was only when she took off the gown that people realized Emma's 'friend' was actually carrying a badge, mace and a gun. 5000 points to Gryffindor!

Earlier in the day, Emma posted an adorable selfie in her cap and gown to Twitter with the caption '!,' showing her followers just how excited she was to be graduating from the prestigious university. And, with over 13 million Twitter followers, do you really blame her for wanting to have a security guard with her on her big day? We sure don't…

Emma really is just a normal college kid…

    Congrats Emma!

    I don’t get why people are making such a big deal out of this, she had a guard for her own safety. Do you honestly blame her with how often shit goes wrong? She’s a celebrity that most people will recognize which makes her a pretty easy target in my opinion. It’s not like she was flashing around her body guard, the body guard blended into the crowd in the best way possible.

      ? We’re saying it’s cool! Totally smart (and Hermione-esque) :)

    So what if she did. She wanted to attend graduation and also be safe just in case. I think it’s smart she did because it’s likely she would have been pestered. I admire that she graduated all while filming four films.
