On Sunday night, Rumors have been swirling since the pair was seen leaving the Vanity Fair Oscars party together, along with a group of friends. Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet had previously been photographed together at a Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats concert at Hollywood’s Troubadour in February.
One Hollywood insider said, “It’s crazy but, yes, they are seeing each other, although Emma wants to keep things quiet and private.” While Overstreet joined Watson at the Vanity Fair party, the actress was seen mingling with a host of stars including Jennifer Garner and James Corden. Another source insisted of Watson and Overstreet, “They are friendly, but are not in a relationship.”
Emm Watson has been single after splitting with Silicon Valley tech company manager William “Mack” Knight in late 2017 after dating for nearly two years.
In 2017, Emma Watson, 27, told Vanity Fair why she wants to keep her romantic life under the radar: “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. You can’t have it both ways.”
She added, “I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.”
A vocal advocate for the Time’s Up movement, Ivy League-grad Watson debuted a temporary tattoo for the cause on Oscar night, and the internet was quick to point out that her ink was missing an apostrophe. The “Beauty and the Beast” star poked fun at herself and the grammar police on Twitter the following day by writing, “Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must.”
