No, Emma Watson is not retiring from acting

Emma Watson 86th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet

Emma Watson‘s representative has shot down rumors suggesting the actress is considering retirement.

Having been rumored to have planned to retire in order to settle down with reported fiancé Leo Robinton, the actress best known for her portrayal of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series has denied the rumors.

Setting the record straight on the online buzz was the 30-year-old’s manager from Untitled Entertainment, Jason Weinberg. He simply told Entertainment Weekly, “[Her] social media accounts are dormant but her career isn’t.”

The clarification from Jason came after Emma’s career was reported to be “dormant” and she “is not taking on new commitments.” A source additionally told Daily Mail, “[she] has gone underground, she is settling down with Leo. They’re laying low. Maybe she wants a family.”

In response to the rumors of Watson’s retirement, fans were largely supportive, wishing the actress well in her life and thanking her for the roles she’s played. For some, Meg March would’ve been a character high note for Watson to go out on — even a bit poetic.

By all appearances, it seemed Watson was happily giving up on career aspirations for a more domestic life, much like Meg did in the film.

While it was unclear whether Emma will take her relationship with Leo to a new level, things apparently have been going strong between them. Back in November 2020, they were caught on camera enjoying a coffee date in Primrose Hill.

Emma previously dated tech manager William “Mack” Knight for two years. Shortly after they parted ways, she was linked romantically to former Glee star Chord Overstreet. The pair reportedly dated for six months before deciding to call it quits.
