Actress Emma Watson shared that she prefers to call herself “self-partnered” rather than single as she approaches her 30th birthday.

29-year-old Watson who rose to stardom as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, adopted the term in an interview with British Vogue in which she discussed the pressures of turning 30.

The actress and activist whose birthday is in April revealed that she initially did not get the “fuss” that surrounded the milestone.

Watson admitted to feeling “stressed and anxious” about her upcoming birthday.

She shared with  British Vogue that if you have not built a home, not have a husband nor a baby and turning 30…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.”
Watson shared that she has never believed the “‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” and she added: “It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”
This term is similar to the one actress Gwyneth Paltrow used, which is ‘conscious uncoupling’ when she divorced Coldplay singer Chris Martin in 2014.
Watson is returning to the screen later this year to play Margaret “Meg” March in “Little Women” alongside Laura Dern and Meryl Streep — both of whom she knew previously through their activism.

The full interview will appear in the December issue of British Vogue and will be available from 8 November.

Born Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson on 15 April 1990 in Paris, Watson is an actress, model and activist.

She was brought up in Oxfordshire where she attended the Dragon School and trained as an actress at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts.

She used to act in school plays and she rose to fame after landing her first professional acting role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series. /TISG
