Harry Potter star Emma Watson says she is quite comfortable being single as she approaches 30 but prefers to refer to her status as “self-partnering.”
Watson admitted that she never understood the pressure women often face about being married, having children, and building a home at 30. Now, she’s just months away from the milestone.
“I was like, ‘Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal,'” Watson said in an interview with British Vogue. “Cut to 29, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious.’ If you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.”...
A self-partering relationship hasn’t gotten in the way of Watson living the life of political activist. A few years ago, she lobbied her Twitter followers to help suggest a title for her feminist book. Last year, Watson was roasted after she unveiled a misspelled Time’s Up tattoo at the Oscars. The actress has spent the last few years being a UN Women goodwill ambassador and had also joined the He For She campaign to promote gender equality around the world.
