Brown Students Heckled Emma Watson With Harry Potter Lines

Though Emma Watson had probably hoped her time spent attending Brown University would give her a reprieve from all things Harry Potter, she could never quite leave Hermione behind, reports the New York Daily News. A student source told the paper that whenever Watson volunteered an answer in class, other students would razz her with a Potter quote, typically, "Three points for Gryffindor!" (Okay, that would probably be funny the first time, we admit.) Watson ran into the same problems at the Brown-Harvard football game, where Harvard students "stalked" her and shouted out more Potter lines. Did Natalie Portman have it so tough during her stint in the Ivy League, or did her classmates at least give her the dignity of not repeating dialogue written by George Lucas? [NYDN]
