Emma Watson says she's self-partnered

Emma Watson says she’s ‘self-partnered’ rather than single

The ‘Little Women’ star shared her relationship status and how she feels about turning 30

Emma Watson is not single, she’s “self-partnered.” The 29-year-old actress, who stars in the upcoming Little Women reboot, opened up to British Vogue about her current relationship status and how she feels about where she stands in the love spectrum. "I never believed the whole 'I'm happy single' spiel," she told the magazine. "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."

Emma admitted there’s a pressure that comes with turning 30

But even though she’s content, Emma, who turns 30 on April 15, 2020, admitted she does get a whim of anxiety due to the pressures society imposes when turning 30. "I was like, 'Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal...'" she said. "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,” she added.

“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.”
