Miranda Cosgrove plans to attend college this fall after she wraps up shooting the final season of her hit Nickelodeon show “iCarly.” Cosgrove felt that at 19, it’s the right time to take on some new experiences and live life as a headlines back in 2009. She eventually left when she realized that her life as a celebrity was very different than that of the other students there. “I was in denial,” Watson told Britain’s in 2011 shortly after deciding to leave. “I wanted to pretend I wasn’t as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality, but I kind of have to accept who I am, the position I’m in and what happened.”
