Emma Watson has finally spoken up about the rumors around her personal and professional life. She responded to the engagement rumors that had been circulating on Twitter recently. The 31-year-old actress was on a social media hiatus since last August, but felt the need to set the record straight.
Emma Watson assures fans that she’s okay and she’s not quitting acting
She sent four tweets, mainly to reassure fans that she was fine and just taking a break from social media. She also addressed the rumors regarding her engagement (to boyfriend Leo Robinton) and eventual retirement from acting.
Dear Fans, Rumours 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. 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.
What sparked the fire of speculation regarding the actress’s future plans?
Emma Watson was photographed wearing a ring on her left ring finger during an outing with her boyfriend, earlier this year. This sparked the engagement rumors. Then there were reports that the actress was leaving the industry. However, her manager, Jason Weinberg, reportedly stated that the rumors were false.
“Emma’s social media accounts are dormant but her career isn’t,” he reiterated.
Fans of the actress and activist last saw her in the movie adaptation of “Little Women”, starring alongside Florence Pugh and Meryl Streep.
Emma Watson certainly has a lot more to give in terms of performance. Which is why it’s absurd to think she would be quitting acting. She rarely updates her social media accounts with information about her personal and professional life. Instead, the actress prefers to highlight social problems.
The Harry Potter actress pledged to keep her fans and following up to date on any important life events from now on.
