Emma Watson Shuts Down Engagement Rumors

Using her voice! Emma Watson took to social media to clear up the many rumors circulating about her and her life — and she wasn’t afraid, to be honest.

“Dear Fans, Rumors about whether I’m engaged or not, or whether my career is ‘dormant or not’ are ways to create clicks each time they are revealed to be true or untrue,” Watson, 31, tweeted on Monday, May 17. “If I have news – I promise I’ll share it with you.”

The Harry Potter alum continued: “In the meantime please assume no news from me just means I’m quietly spending the pandemic the way most people are – failing to make sourdough bread (!), caring for my loved ones, and doing my best not to spread a virus that is still affecting so many people.”

The actress ended the thread with a positive message to her fans.

“I am sending so much love to you, hoping you’re ok and as well and happy as you can be in these strange times. And again, thank you to everyone working so hard to keep us safe and well,” she concluded her social media post.

The Little Women star has been dating Leo Robinton since April 2020. She was previously linked to Chord Overstreet, Johnny Simmons, and Will Adamowicz. Watson later sparked romance rumors with her Harry Potter costar Tom Felton but neither party confirmed that they were anything more than friends.

Watson has shared her thoughts on relationships and even coined the term “self-partnered” in 2019 as a way to empower herself and anyone else who is happy being single.

The activist also shared her thoughts on working to maintain relationships.

“I feel that relationships that don’t necessarily follow traditional models do require more communication and consent,” Watson shared during a conversation with Teen Vogue in March 2020. “It requires an actual conversation and agreement about the delegation of tasks and labor and responsibilities that maybe you don’t feel that you need to have or should have if you follow those traditional stereotypes.”

She added, “The idea that relationships are supposed to be easy and it’s all supposed to be implicitly understood, and you’re just meant to get each other, it’s bullsh–t! It’s impossible!”

Actor Tom Felton Shares Adorable Throwback For Emma Watson’s Birthday

It’s Emma Watson’s day! The Harry Potter actress just turned 31 years old this Thursday, making it the perfect opportunity for her friends, family, and fans to reminisce about their best times with the star. Of course, our favorite thing to think back on when it comes to Watson is her role as Hermione Granger in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. It’s leviosa, not leviosar, people! To ring in Watson‘s special day, her co-star and longtime friend Tom Felton shared a super cute throwback of the pair.

Although their characters were from warring houses and seldom saw eye to eye, in real life, Emma Watson and Tom Felton have remained pals. The 33-year-old Draco Malfoy actor shared this adorable photo to wish her a happy birthday:

Whoa, they were babies! It looks like this picture was taken in the real early days considering a movie poster from 2002’s Scooby-Doo The Movie is peeking out behind them. They must have been in the first or second movie of the franchise, putting Emma Watson at about 12 and Tom Felton at about 14. It’s super sweet that the pair can say they’ve been friends for about two decades now. They’re like childhood best friends – it’s just too cute!

It’s no secret that Tom Felton was young Emma Watson’s first crush, but the pair never seemed to surpass their status as best friends since the meeting. When the actress previously spoke about it, she called it a “terrible crush” that was unrequited by Tom Felton who saw her in a “sisterly way.” Here’s what she admitted back in 2012:

“Between the ages of 10 and 12, I had a really terrible crush on Tom Felton. We love a bad guy and he was a few years older and he had a skateboard. And that just did it, really. He used to do tricks on it. He was so cool.”

Awww! What’s cuter than the budding feelings Emma Watson had for the actor as a young girl is how it has bloomed into a lifelong friendship over the years into adulthood and into their 30s. A couple of years ago, Tom Felton posted this photo on Instagram that had him teaching his Harry Potter co-star the guitar in their pajamas:

It’s great to see the pair keeping in touch, as Emma Watson has reportedly found a partner in Leo Robinton, and the rest of the cast continues to settle down with families. Rupert Grint recently welcomed his first child, Wednesday, back in November, and another member of the Harry Potter family is also now expecting.

While the cast of the fantasy franchise has come a long way since starring in the movies, it’s nice to see they are still connected. A very happy birthday to Emma Watson from us here at CinemaBlend!

Will Emma Watson Return For A “Harry Potter” Spin-off?

For the unversed, Emma Watson, who actually plays Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, recently made news when it was said she has taken retirement from acting.

After months and technically years of speculations, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar is confirming their plans to expand the Harry Potter universe doesn’t come in as a shocker. The studio, as expected and justified, is all set to cash in the opportunity and churn out profit from the franchise that has fans across the globe in massive numbers. Amid this, making news is Hermione Granger.

If you have been close to the vineyard, the grapevine recently had that WarnerMedia is planning to give the character’s from the wizarding world their separate spin-offs. One of the most prominent and exciting characters to get a full-length film designated to her is Hermione Granger played by Emma Watson. But what if she doesn’t come on board. Read on to know everything about this update of the day.

For the unversed, Emma Watson, who actually plays Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, recently made news when it was said she has taken retirement from acting. In this case what if the actor denies reprising Hermione for the special spin-off. As per a report in We Got This Covered, the studio is also prepared for that situation too. The intel who has got his hand on a big gossip says the bosses will even consider recasting Hermione if Watson disagrees to come on board.

It is not like they want to take the recasting route in a hurry. The intel also adds that the studio will try to convince the actor to reprise the mantle even if it makes them pay some more than planned. But even if Emma Watson doesn’t agree to walk the Harry Potter universe lanes again, they will have to recast.

It is also a risky part to replace Emma Watson in a Harry Potter film for the studio as the actor has made a massive fan base for her nerdy character.
