Emma Watson confirms new romance with Oxford classmate after the pair were spotted together

It seems as though Emma Watson is truly loved-up with a new beau, after she was seen on a date with a fellow student at Oxford university.

The actress has spent the majority of the year far removed from the spotlight, choosing to focus on her studies.

In December 2023, she spoke about her decision to go back to school to study a masters in creative writing at the prestigious university.

Talking to British Vogue, she said: “Because I’m in a career that moves very quickly, the decision to take time to do these things felt like a very big decision.

“[Choosing] to go back and write and study and get behind the camera was terrifying for me because I’d never done it before.

“I had always been in front of the camera; I’d always been an actor.”

She was last romantically linked to the son of fashion entrepreneur Sir Philip Green, Brandon Green, but the relationship fizzled out in May 2023.

Not much is currently known about her new love-interest, Kieran Brown, but one thing we do know is that he isn’t a celebrity.

The Sun have reported that Brown is pursuing a PhD in 19th century literature and economics at the same institution as Emma.

A source told them: “Emma is studying creative writing, and his thesis is all about literary theory – so they have a lot to talk about.

“She looks so loved up with Kieran.”

Earlier this month (July 2024), the pair were spotted on a date outside Gail’s Bakery, and were captured sharing a kiss.

An eyewitness told the Daily Mail: “They were chatting together in the queue, they seemed to have quite a nice vibe.”

Emma spoke about single life with British Vogue in 2019, whilst discussing her hard and fast dating rules.

She said: “Dating apps are not on the cards for me.

“I’m very lucky in the sense that because I went to university and because I’ve done these other things outside of film, my friends are really good at setting me up.

“And what’s really nice is some of my best friends are people I got set up on a date with and it didn’t work out.”

Lucky her, ay?
