Rumours have been swirling that Emma Watson and former “Glee” star Chord Overstreet are an item, and that speculation became even more heated after the Daily Mail published exclusive photos of the pair holding hands and smiling happily while taking a walk.
Overstreet, 29, and the 27-year-old “Beauty and the Beast” star were photographed on Thursday in Los Angeles, and were also spotted leaving the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party together on Sunday night.
Speculation of a romance first began when the two were photographed together at a concert last month, and a “Hollywood insider” tells the New York Post‘s “Page Six” column that the two are indeed a couple.
“It’s crazy but, yes, they are seeing each other, although Emma wants to keep things quiet and private,” said the insider, although another source told the newspaper, “They are friendly, but are not in a relationship.”
Watson has been single since December, when she broke up with Silicon Valley tech company manager William “Mack” Knight after dating for almost two years.
While the Mail‘s photos would indicate the pair aren’t taking any pains to conceal their relationship (if there is one), don’t expect the famously private Watson to give any interviews about her love life.
In a 2017 interview with Vanity Fair, the former “Harry Potter” star discussed her aversion to discussing her personal life in order to maintain some semblance of privacy.
“I want to be consistent,” she explained. “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.”
