Emma Watson Rejects the Word “Single”; Opts for “Self-Partnered”

Emma Watson may be flying solo for now, but she has a strong partner in her life: herself. The starlet, who is about to turn 30, is rejecting the societal pressures put on women in her age group—particularly expectations in the relationship arena. In an interview with British Vogue, Watson touched on her current status, saying "It took me a long time, but I'm very happy (being single)."

Watson, who plays Meg March in Greta Gerwig's upcoming film Little Women, decided to adopt the term "self-partnered" after navigating the social pressures of becoming a 30-something woman. "I was like, ‘why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal…'" the actress said. "Cut to 29, and I'm like ‘Oh my god, I feel so stressed and anxious."

Despite the struggles she's experienced in her love life, Watson says her past relationships have "built her up", while adding that her focus has been on "…figuring out how to be at home with myself."
