Get ready for the biggest "almost-certainly-not-true-but-how-awesome-would-it-be?" dating rumor since Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio.
An Australian tabloid called Woman's Day is reporting that Emma Watson is dating Prince Harry. Fill in your own joke about her long history with gingers and guys named Harry.
According to Down Under insiders (an oxymoron if ever there was one), when Harry found out that Emma was no longer dating Matthew Janney, he sent the beloved actress an email stating that he'd "like to get to know her."
Emma's no dummy, so she almost certainly knew exactly what that meant in Harry-speak, but she reportedly accompanied him to a party anyway.
"Harry didn't want her to feel stuffy, like she was put on the spot," explains one source. "A party also shows he's fun and not stuffy."
Yes, he clearly did his research and realized that Emma Watson is nothing if not a party girl. (Sarcasm.)
Since then, Emma and Harry have reportedly been on several "secret dates."
"He's smitten. And it's not just her looks," the probably made-up insider claims.
It's not hard to see how this rumor got started in the mind of some bored tabloid writer:
You have two young, single, well-bred Brits, and people would love to see them together. Plus, Emma will be a Disney Princess soon. Sometimes, the BS just falls right into your lap.
Don't get us wrong, we hope this rumor turns out to be legit (Banging royalty would probably mean some major points for Gryffindor), but it seems like a case of "too good to be true."
