Did Emma Watson Retire From Acting?
Did Emma Watson retire from acting?
Despite previous reports that the 30-year-old actress had apparently retired from show business, Jason Weinberg, the star's manager at Untitled Entertainment, says it simply isn't true.
"Emma’s social media accounts are dormant but her career isn’t," Weinberg told Entertainment Weekly in a statement.
It was previously speculated that Watson’s career had gone “dormant” and that she was “not taking on new commitments,” according to a Daily Mail report that allegedly included comments from an unnamed publicist.
“Emma’s official Instagram page is currently dormant and is not being updated,” her Instagram bio currently reads. Watson has not posted anything on the platform since June 2020.
However, the Harry Potter icon seems to be stepping away from the spotlight somewhat to spend time with her rumored fiance Leo Robinton. The couple were first photographed together in October 2019, but it is speculated that they may have met at the Women’s March in Washington D.C. in 2017. The two have also been spotted together in Britain where he reportedly met her parents.
The couple sparked engagement rumors a few weeks ago after Watson was spotted donning a band on her ring finger after returning from a pre-Valentine’s Day trip to Mexico with Robinton.
According to the Daily Mail, Watson and Robinton secretly lived in Ibiza for several weeks in January, spending mornings “reading the papers over smoothies at a vegan cafe.”
“Emma has gone underground, she is settling down with Leo. They're laying low. Maybe she wants a family,” a source told the publication.
Over the last five years, Watson has worked on only three projects: Beauty and the Beast, The Circle and Little Women.
Watson has neither confirmed nor denied the engagement rumors.
