Emma Watson is definitely, maybe dating Chord Oversteet.
The couple, who were first linked when they were spotted leaving Vanity Fair‘s Oscar party together last week, seemingly just went public with their relationship after they were photographed holding hands. In photos obtained by the Daily Mail on Friday, March 9, the Beauty and the Beast star, 27, and the Glee alum, 29, were seen arm-in-arm during a romantic stroll.
They were also snapped together at a Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats concert at the Troubadour in Los Angeles last month.
“It’s crazy but, yes, they are seeing each other, although Emma wants to keep things quiet and private,” a source told Page Six. Meanwhile, another insider spilled, “They are friendly, but are not in a relationship.”
The romance rumors come just three months since word got out Emma had broken up with Silicon Valley tech company manager William “Mack” Knight after nearly two years of dating.
Last year, the notoriously private actress explained to Vanity Fair why she likes to keep her love life private, saying, “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 continued, “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.”
