Emma Watson Returns To Twitter To Shut Down Rumors About Her Engagement & 'Dormant' Career


The world-renowned Harry Potter star Emma Watson is back on the social media site Twitter after almost 10 months of social media break. The actress’s last tweet dates back to August 27, 2020.

But, her return to Twitter isn’t for small talks as she came back to make a statement and address topics concerning her personal and professional life that has been circulating around the internet for a while.

Emma took to her Twitter handle on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, to officially end the gossips that she had engaged with boyfriend Leo Robinton. She first addressed her fans writing “Dear Fans,” and then went on to write that the rumors about her possible engagement and her ‘dormant’ career are just ways to create clicks either it’s true or untrue.

In addition to that, the 31-year-old actress tweeted once again and promised that she will let her fans know if she has any news. “If I have news - I promise I’ll share it with you,” Emma wrote.

The Brown University graduate seemed to be addressing an article originally published by The Daily Mail in early 2021. In that article, it was said that the English actress was taking some steps back from the entertainment industry in order to settle down with her beau, Leo Robinton.

The news outlet said, “Emma Watson has gone 'dormant' according to her agent. That appears to be movie-speak for she's 'given up acting.'” After the news was published, Emma’s manager at Untitled Entertainment, Jason Weinberg, immediately denied the talks.

In addition to that, while talking to Entertainment Weekly, he said, “Emma's social media accounts are dormant but her career isn't.” Despite the denial statement from the actress’s manager, rumors began spreading stating that Emma has gotten engaged with her boyfriend and her acting career is now ‘dormant.’

However, now that Emma, herself, has directly addressed the topic and claimed it as “false,” it is vividly clear that she and her partner are yet to get engaged and her acting career is just fine.

But, that’s not it, as the Beauty and the Beast star actress didn’t only address the speculations concerning her personal and professional life. Watson also took the moment to share how she is spending her days during the pandemic days, just like everyone else is spending.

In the third tweet of that day, she requested everyone to assume that if there is no news about her, then it just means that she is spending the pandemic days just like everyone else, which is failing to make sourdough bread, caring for her loved ones, and doing her best not to spread a virus that is still affecting so thousands.

Just some moments later, another tweet emerged in which she sent her well wishes to all of her fans. “I am sending so much love to you, hoping you’re ok and as well and happy as you can be in these strange times. And again, thank you to everyone working so hard to keep us safe and well. E. Xx,” Watson wrote.
