Emma Watson explains ‘self-partnered’ word
The gorgeous actress, Emma Watson, spoke and used the term ‘self-partnered’ in her interview with Vogue in November 2019. She told now:
“In the run-up to my 30s, [I felt] this incredible, sudden anxiety and pressure that I had to be married or have a baby or [be] moving into a house. And there was no word for this kind of subliminal messaging and anxiety and pressure that I felt building up but couldn’t really name, so I used the word self-partnered.”
Emma continues to clarify:
“For me it wasn’t so much about coining a word; it was more that I needed to create a definition for something that I didn’t feel there was language for. And it was interesting because it really riled some people up! It was less for me about the word but more about what it meant — just this idea that we need to reclaim language and space in order to express ourselves, because sometimes it’s really not there.”
Emma talks relationships
The Harry Potter actress had past relationships with Glee actor Chord Overstreet and Silicon Valley techie William ‘Mack’ Knight. There were rumors that she is dating Tom Felton but now his name is on the celebrity dating app, Raya.
In October, she was spotted with a mystery man outside of Gail’s Bakery in London. She was kissing him but his identity is yet not known to the world.
Emma disclosed how she feels a relationship should be and evolve:
“I feel that relationships that don’t necessarily follow traditional models do require more communication and consent. It requires an actual conversation and agreement about the delegation of tasks and labor and responsibilities that maybe you don’t feel you need to have or should have if you follow those traditional stereotypes.… The idea that relationships are supposed to be easy and it’s all supposed to be implicitly understood, and you’re just meant to get each other, it’s bulls**t! It’s impossible!”

In the earlier interview, she had stated:
