A British publication is reporting that the actress Emma Watson has decided to matriculate at Brown University.  The “Harry Potter” star visited Yale in October and December and caused a stir on campus as students realized she was seriously considering coming to the Elm City for her undergraduate years.

But it was apparently not meant to be.

“She looked at universities over here [in Britain] but fell in love with Brown,” the News of the World tabloid quoted an unnamed source as saying in a report. “She has a lot of friends there.”
