Earlier this month, we learned two things about Emma Watson. One, that she had appeared to have sustained some kind of injury to her knee, which required her to walk with the assistance of one of those sporty little four-wheeled mobility scooters. Two, that it looked like she had what appeared to be some kind of engagement-looking ring on her left hand’s ring finger. Well, speaking of possible breaks and engagements, The Daily Mail has been doing a little digging, and they seem to think that Emma Watson is taking a break from Hollywood to pursue her current situation as a possibly-engaged person.
The last time we saw 30-year-old Emma Watson on screen was in 2019’s Little Women. Right now, she doesn’t have anything in production. And a source tells The Daily Mail that Emma has ghosted her agent and that it looks like she’s focusing on her relationship with her 30-year-old rumored fiancé Leo Robinton.
My source says: ‘Emma has gone underground, she is settling down with Leo. They’re laying low. Maybe she wants a family.’ Her publicist confirms her career is ‘dormant’ and she ‘is not taking on new commitments.”
The source adds that Emma and Leo lived in Ibiza in secret for several weeks, ending in January, and that they’re back in Los Angeles. And it sounds like the first call she made after taking her phone off airplane mode wasn’t to her agent. And it’s not like Emma has to work. She’s rich rich. She’s got Harry Potter money, which means she can wave her wand, utter an unenthusiastic “Evanesco…something” and vanish from Hollywood without stressing about how her bills are going to get paid. Also, her maybe-fiancé is reportedly a rich guy cannabis business person, and so he’s not exactly hurting for dollars either.
And if you’re looking for clues on her social media page about a possible acting retirement, whether it be permanent or temporary, well you won’t find much help there either. Her Instagram account has been dormant since June of last year and her Twitter hasn’t tweeted since August. Personally, I would immediately turn the ringer off on my phone and go on a temporary hiatus from Hollywood after being in Little Women. Like, 90% of the costumes in that movie were nothing but itchy tight wool. And so many scenes took place in the winter too. I’d want a 3-year break to get over the smell of damp wool too.
