Emma Watson & Chord Overstreet Basc Confirm Romance by Holding Hands

By  | 

Nothing gets by fans! People starting speculating that Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet are dating after they were seen leaving the Vanity Fair Oscar Party together on Sunday night, but nothing was actually confirmed. Sure, the Harry Potter actress was wearing the Glee alum’s jacket as they left the building, but that could’ve definitely been a simply platonic move. While we still don’t have relationship confirmation from either of the actors, we DO have pictures of them holding hands and looking quite smitten while on a date in Los Angeles yesterday.

People magazine confirms the latest celebrity coupling, with a source saying, “They have been dating for a little bit now, but it’s still pretty new. They met through friends. They might seem like an odd match but they actually have very similar personalities.”

The 27- and 29-year-old were first spotted hanging out together early last month when they attended a Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats concert at the Troubadour in L.A.

Emma was previously in a two-year relationship with tech entrepreneur William “Mack” Knight, but the two kept their romance on the DL during their time together.

“I want to be consistent: 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,” she told Vanity Fair before they broke up in November 2017. “You can’t have it both ways. I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.”

So don’t expect the British beauty to start spilling details about their romance any time soon, people!
