Emma Watson Opens Up About Why She Won't Date Anyone Famous

Have you (like the rest of us) been pining over Emma Watson since she stepped on the screen as Hermione Granger? You may be in luck. As long as you haven't been making it into the tabloids recently, you're just her type.

The 23–year–old spoke with Elle Australia for their April issue about the woes of dating a celebrity and why she won't be signing up anytime soon.

"I don’t date people who are famous," Watson admitted. "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."

Watson's theory could explain her relationship with current boyfriend Matthew Janney, a rugby player at Oxford University.
