You probably grew up watching Emma Watson as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, and were stunned by her recent performance as Meg March in Greta Gerwig's adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. She's been the apple of our eye since, like forever, but there's always been a part of me wondering: Who catches Watson's eye?
In the past year, Watson has been rumored to be linked to her old co-star from her days at Hogwarts, Tom Felton. That's been shot down, though, because it's also been rumored (opens in new tab) that Felton has signed up for the super-secretive celebrity dating app called Raya. Which, obviously, you would not be doing if you were dating Emma Watson.
It was heartbreaking to know this probably wasn't a thing, frankly. After I saw this photo that Felton posted of teaching Watson how to play the guitar in their pajamas, I really believed two of my childhood favorites were getting together.

It's all good, though, because, in October of last year, Watson was seen kissing (opens in new tab) a mystery man outside of Gail's Bakery in London. Months later, his identity has yet to be revealed, and I feel like it'll be a long time before we even get a first name.
"I want to be consistent: I can't talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home," Watson told Vanity Fair (opens in new tab) in 2017. "You can't have it both ways."
In a November 2019 interview with (opens in new tab) Vogue UK (opens in new tab), Watson described herself as "self-partnered" when it comes to her relationship status. Watson also spoke about her anxiety to turn 30.
"I never believed the whole 'I'm happy single' spiel," she said. "I was like, 'This is totally spiel.' It took me a long time, but I'm very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered."
So we can't confirm or deny who exactly Watson is dating (if anybody!), but we can confirm that Watson definitely still has a little bit of Hermione in her.
