Emma Watson talks being happily single at 30 in a new interview with Vogue.
The 29-year-old, who turns 30 in April, says: “I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel. I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”
Watson continues, “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.”
The actress, who has been romantically linked to Chord Overstreet, Tom Felton, and rugby player Matthew Janney, goes on: “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.”
