"I kept saying, 'I don’t care.' This is what I want. And graduating will, for me, be really symbolic of all of that," the Noah star added, laughing, "I will be there. And I will be throwing a huge party. And getting very drunk."

As for life after college, Watson told the mag: "I've got so much left to do and to prove."
