Emma Watson Is Single, Brings Hope to Wizard-Loving Geeks Everywhere

By: Celebuzz / March 15, 2010

If Emma Watson thought she was getting unwanted attention from the male students of Brown University already, he probably hasn’t seen anything yet.

The 19-year-old Harry Potter actress has reportedly split up with her long-term boyfriend, 28-year-old financier Jay Barrymore, whom she’d been dating since 2008. According to a source, the relationship has been on thin ice for a while, and the distance created by Watson’s decision to attend Brown in Rhode Island was the final breaking point:

“Emma and Jay were in trouble for months and with Emma at Brown University in America, the transatlantic gap proved too much for their relationship to survive.”

Who do you think Emma should date next? Maybe someone in show-biz like herself, or a quiet student-type who writes love poems in iambic pentameter when he’s not studying comparative literature? Share your thoughts in the comments section!
