The student journos were “messing around” with the school’s e-mail autocomplete function, when they discovered that someone named “Hannah Dakota Fanning” (the actress’s full name) has an NYU e-mail address. This seems to confirm that the “Twilight” star is officially enrolled at the school.
Fanning will join fellow class of 2015-ers, “Suite Life” twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse, at the university this fall. Other notable celebs to have taken classes there in recent years include Haley Joel Osment and James Franco.
NYU Local previously reported that Emma Watson had toured the school, fueling rumors that she also would transfer there after reportedly leaving Brown University because of Hermione bullies. But now we know the “Harry Potter” star will head to Oxford for a year before returning to the Ivy League school to finish her degree.
