Emma Watson made a unique declaration about her relationship status, coining the phrase “self-partnered” during an open interview and stunning photoshoot for Vogue. In the interview, she opened up about her concerns about turning 30 and the societal pressures that come with it. Emma expressed her surprise at the overwhelming societal messaging that suggests women must have a spouse, children, and a successful career by the age of 30, causing her to feel stressed and anxious. She emphasized the immense pressure placed on individuals who haven’t achieved these traditional milestones, urging for a more accepting and understanding society.

Despite proclaiming her contentment with being ‘self-partnered’, Emma Watson, famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, was seen engaging in a passionate kiss with an unidentified gentleman outside a bakery in London a fortnight ago. This new term coined by Emma seems to be an allusion to the catchphrase ‘conscious uncoupling’ popularized by Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin during their well-known divorce in 2014. Prior to this, the talented actress was romantically linked to Dominic Piazza, as they were frequently seen together in various outings during August. Additionally, she had a brief relationship with Brendan Iribe, the former CEO of Oculus, who is 40 years old.

In the month of August, there were speculations surrounding Emma’s romantic involvement with her former colleague from the Harry Potter series, Tom Felton, aged 31, well-known for portraying the role of Draco Malfoy, the villainous character. The duo shared a photo on Instagram where they were seen sharing a cozy guitar lesson in South Africa, leading their social media followers to affectionately label them as ‘Dramione’ and ‘Feltson’. Prior to this, Emma had been in a relationship with actor Chord Overstreet from Glee, but they decided to part ways after being together for six months.

Rumours: In August, it was also rumoured Emma was dating her former Potter co-star Tom Felton, 31, who played villain Draco Malfoy

Gossips were swirling around in August, suggesting that Emma had embarked on a romantic relationship with her former co-star from the Potter series, Tom Felton, aged 31, renowned for his portrayal of the nefarious Draco Malfoy.

In a previous interview with Elle Australia, Emma Watson mentioned that she prefers not to date celebrities. According to her, it isn’t fair that dating someone famous results in their personal life becoming public, and she wishes she could protect them from that. Emma’s next project is playing the role of Meg in the highly anticipated adaptation of Little Women. The story revolves around the March sisters during the American Civil War, facing challenges related to money, societal pressures, and romance. While Saoirse Ronan’s character, Jo, pursues a writing career, Emma feels proud to portray Meg and her dreams onscreen. She believes that feminism is about making choices, and for Meg, her choice is to be a full-time mother and wife. Despite the differing dreams of Meg and her sister Jo, Emma emphasizes that they are both important. The full interview can be found in the December issue of British Vogue, available for digital download and on newsstands starting November 8th.
