Is Emma Watson dating someone now? Learn everything there is to know about the mysterious man the “Harry Potter” star is rumored to be dating.
On September 2, the 32-year-old actress was first seen with Brandon Green, the son of tycoon businessman Phillip Green, on a private helicopter in Battersea, west London. The couple was recently spotted spending time together while on vacation in Venice, Italy.
According to the Daily Mail, Green is currently “wooing” Watson. Their shared concern for environmental protection has brought them together. Watson is well-known for her climate change activism, and she even attended last year’s COP26 summit in Glasgow. Meanwhile, a source tells Elle that Brandon Green is deeply committed to ocean conservation efforts.
The source said:
“He got very interested in biodiversity and saving the oceans. He does a lot of charity work with both Monaco’s Prince Albert’s foundation and Princess Charlene’s foundation. He is very into fitness and gets involved with galas and charities that help the planet. He does frequent beach clean-ups and whatever he can to help.”
Watson’s friends were reportedly “surprised” that she was dating Brandon. In the past, the actress has stated that she relies on her matchmaking friends to set her up on dates.
Perhaps Watson’s friends and many fans were surprised because of the controversy surrounding her new beau’s family background. Brandon’s father, Phillip Green, is a business tycoon who has made a fortune from fast fashion. Meanwhile, Watson is well-known for emphasizing the importance of sustainability in the fashion industry.
Phillip Green is the chairman of the Arcadia Group, which owns clothing stores such as Topshop, Topman, Evans, Miss, Dorothy Perkins, and others. Due to his business decisions and lavish lifestyle, the business tycoon has sparked controversy in the United Kingdom. According to the Sunday Times Rich List, he is worth £910 million.
Brandon, the business tycoon’s son, has been seen accompanying him to events, particularly fashion shows.
In a 2017 interview with Vogue, the “Little Women” actress expressed her contentment with her single status. Watson told the magazine:
“I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel. It took me a long time but I’m happy being single. I call it being self-partnered.”
In 2012, the environmentalist spoke out about the difficulties she faced while juggling her acting career and dating rumors.
Watson told Glamour:
“Being famous is difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So, it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends.”
The “Perks of Being a Wallflower” star’s dating history dates back to 2008. She has been linked to a number of people, including Prince Harry, Francis Boulle, Brandan Wallace, and others.
