Emma Watson Breaks Up With Matthew Janney; Reps Described the Split as ‘Amicable’

Emma Watson and rugby star Matthew Janney have broken up. What was the reason for the break up? Read on for further details.

An insider tells Us Weekly that the split was a “mutual decision” and that Watson has “moved on and is currently busy with work and her lining up some philanthropic pushes.”


Daily Mail reported that Watson’s spokesman described that the two split in an “amicable” fashion and explained that the break up was brought about by the actress’ hectic work schedule. The two broke up a month ago, but reports say that Watson and Janney remain friends.

The actress has transcended her role as Hermione in the hit “Harry Potter” series and has taken on movies such as “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “This Is the End,” “Noah” and “The Bling Ring.” She has also starred on the thriller film “Regression” together with Ethan Hawke, which is set to be released in 2015. She is currently filming “Colonia Dignidad” in Buenos Aires together with Daniel Bruhl and Julian Ovenden. She was recently spotted by E! rocking a form-fitting dress with ballet flats on the set of her upcoming movie, definitely showing that the actress is living well and moving on after the break up.

Things are also going well for Janney as he helped his team win against the University of Cambridge in a score of 43-6 last Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, one day after the news about their break up came to light.

Watson, 24, and Oxford University student and rugby star Janney, 22, were first linked and rumored to be dating in January 2014 after their PDA in the Caribbean. The two were rarely seen together, but Janney was spotted together with the actress during Watson’s press trips in the U.S. and in Spain. They were also seen moving items from Watson’s apartment and were described by an eyewitness as very affectionate and “at one point Matthew wrapped his arms around Emma and kissed her,” causing speculations that the two have moved in together.

And while a break up is often a sad phase in life, it seems there’s already a line of guys waiting to woo Watson. Watson was previously linked with One Direction’s heartthrob Harry Styles after the latter presented Watson with the British Style Award at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, causing fans to go crazy on Twitter and begged them to be a couple.
