No, Emma Watson is not engaged!

Actor made a rare return to Twitter to set the record straight about her romantic and professional front

Entertainment Desk May 18, 2021

Hollywood A-lister Emma Watson made a rare return to Twitter to set the record straight about her personal and professional life. The actor shared her two cents on where she stands in her romantic affair and whether she has retired or not. Her tweets come shortly after The Daily Mail ran photos of her with her boyfriend, Leo Robinton, taken Thursday and described him as her “rumoured fiancé” despite the Harry Potter star giving no indication she's engaged.

"Dear Fans, rumours 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 shared. She further added, "If I have news — I promise I’ll share it with you. 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 actor then wrote, "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."

Watson has kept a low profile over the last year. But she was photographed out with her boyfriend the LA last week. Previously, she spoke candidly to British Vogue in its December 2019 issue about how she felt about turning 30 in April 2020. 

She said, “I was like, ‘Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal…’ Cut to 29, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious. And I realize it’s because there is suddenly this bloody influx of subliminal messaging around. If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.”
