Emma Watson briefly came out of her Twitter hibernation on Monday (May. 17, 2021) to address rumors about her engagement and career.
She said that such speculation about her personal and professional life was a way “to create clicks,” regardless of whether it was true or not. She added that if there was any development, she would share it with fans herself.
In a series of tweets, Emma wrote, “Dear Fans, Rumors about whether I’m engaged or not, or whether my career is ‘dormant or not’ are ways to create clicks each time they are revealed to be true or untrue.” She added, “If I have news – I promise I’ll share it with you.”
Emma asked fans to assume that if she was not sharing any news, she was “quietly spending the pandemic the way most people are.” “In the mean time please assume no news from me just means I’m quietly spending the pandemic the way most people are – failing to make sourdough bread (!), caring for my loved ones and doing my best not to spread a virus that is still affecting so many people,” she wrote.
“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,” she concluded.
Emma’s tweets came just two days after she and Leo were spotted in a rare public outing. On Saturday, May 15, 2021, the Beauty and the Beast actress and her businessman boyfriend were seen leaving a store in Los Angeles.
In the photo, Emma and boyfriend Leo Robinton were pictured leaving a pharmacy store with him carrying bottles of Aspirin and vitamins, as well as a Shamwow cloth. The couple was first romantically linked in October 2019. They have kept a low profile since they started dating.
