Well, this would certainly qualify as one of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. But is it true?
Just days after Emma Watson told Vogue that her love life was currently nonexistent, the Harry Potter superstar was spotted strolling through a Pittsburgh park with her latest costar, Johnny Simmons. And since everyone knows you can't be hot, young, famous and adjacent to a member of the opposite sex without being automatically romantically linked, that's exactly what happened.
But there's no smoke without fire, and sources were quick to come out of the woodwork, claiming that the duo were not only dating, but that Watson had "really fallen for" Simmons and that the loved-up duo was considering moving in together in Los Angeles.
But is it true? Has Johnny really cast a spell over Emma's heart? This rumor is...
According to Emma's rep, these costars are keeping it strictly business.
"This is completely untrue and we have no idea where these rumors have stemmed from," her rep said today.
The 21-year-old Watson and the 24-year-old Simmons are friendly and obviously spent some of their free time together, but this is a platonic relationship.
And as for those rumors that Watson is considering a move to L.A.? Nice try. After her brief stint at Brown, the actress is moving back to the U.K. full time, and is expected to finish out her schooling at Oxford University. Which, for those really bad at geography, is nowhere near Southern California.
