Harry Potter famed Emma Watson just turned 30 recently and while media has been bombarding her with questions about dating and ‘settling down’, the starlet has no such thoughts. She has beautifully embraced her single status and calls herself being “self partnered”.
“Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal, cut to 29, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious’,” said the actress while talking to Vogue.
“I never believed the whole “I’m happy single” spiel… it took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]- I call it being self-partnered,” she confidently concluded.
Emma, a believer of non-patriarchal norms, shattered some orthodox norms with her interview.
“If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… there’s just this incredible amount of anxiety,” she spoke of the hardships faced by single women.
However, despite her singlehood, the actress is not in the mood to settle down anytime soon. Additionally, she’s not even keen on dating celebrities.
