勉強する時間なんてあるんですか!? 学問するセレブたち

エマ・ワトソンがブラウン大学に復学するというニュースが舞い込んできたばかりだが、ここでハリウッド・セレブたちの進学事情を振り返ってみよう。

今回のエマの復学が英断として語られるのは、大学に通い、授業を受けて大学を卒業することが、売れっ子の俳優/女優にとって、困難以外のなにものでもないからだ。名門ニューヨーク大学に進学したオルセン姉妹や、『ゴシップ・ガール』のコナー・パオロなど、入学はしたものの一年を待たずして大学を辞めるパターンが多いのもまた事実なのだ。

だがその一方で、殺人的なスケジュールをやりくりして、見事に大学を卒業したセレブもいる。中でもかなりの根性を感じさせるのはナタリー・ポートマンで、彼女は名門中の名門、ハーバード大学をしっかり4年で卒業している。ナタリーが一般の学生にとっても難関であるハーバードに通っていたのは、1999年からの4年間で、なんとその時期には映画『スター・ウォーズ』シリーズの撮影も重なっている。

さて、セレブたちにとって学業の問題は大学に限らない。幼いころから子役として活躍した場合、高校に通うことすら困難を極めることがある。ダコタとエルのファニング姉妹は、子役としてキャリアを積み重ねつつも学校に通っている。ダコタは今年高校を卒業し、エルも映画のプレミアと期末試験を繰り返しながら学生生活をなんとか送っているようだ。

エマの復学がセレブたちの見本になるように、彼女のキャンパス・ライフを温かく見守っていこう。
