Emma Watson prefers the non-famous crowd when it comes to boyfriends, she said recently in an interview.
The 23-year-old actress spoke with Elle Australia for their April issue about why she would rather date someone who isn’t in the limelight compared to another celebrity, the Daily Mail reported.
“I don’t date famous people,” she said. “I don’t think it’s fair that all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them.”
She also added she won’t be dating a celebrity anytime soon.
Her preference in men explains her current rumored relationship. Watson has been spotted cozying up with 21-year-old Oxford University student Matthew Janney, Celebuzz reported.
The two are said to have met while Watson attended Oxford through a student exchange program in 2011.
Janney plays varsity rugby at the university and sources say the two are very happy, adding the former Harry Potter star and her new beau went on a Caribbean getaway together earlier this month.
