Sit down, readers.
Stop operating all heavy machinery.
And take a very deep breath.
Because a new report is about to knock your socks off, while simultaneously causing your eyeballs to pop out of their sockets and your jaw to hit the floor.
We just want you to be fully prepared. Here we go…
… Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson may be dating!
We don’t have a ton of evidence on which to base this statement, except for an In Touch Weekly source who alleges the British superstars have been making love to each other for several weeks now.
Or at least building themselves up to said love making via a variety of romantic interactions.
“They’ve been texting and enjoying secret dinners together in LA and London,” this insider claims.
The actress and actor have known each other since 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the film in which Pattinson portrayed Cedric Diggory.
(Watson, of course, is best known for having played Hermione Granger in this beloved movie franchise.)
Why might Emma and Robert be drawn to each other?
"They share the same sense of humor and have so much in common. They’ve always had chemistry, but the timing has never been right – until now," writes the aforementioned tabloid.
It certainly is true that Watson and Pattinson looked like they were having a blast when presenting on stage this past Sunday night at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards.
The mere sight of these young icons together has set the Internet on fire.
Watson has almost never been involved in a high profile romance.
She has been candid in the past about the challenges she faces as a very famous person in this regard, once commenting:
"It’s difficult in my dating life because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!"
Pattinson, conversely, dated former Twilight Saga star Kristen Stewart for many years. (Perhaps you read about it… absolutely everywhere for about four years.)
He split with the actress a long time ago, but then found himself a subject of the paparazzi during his relationship with FKA Twigs.
There was even chatter that Twigs and Pattinson were engaged, only for the romance to fall apart in October.
Since then, he’s actually been linked to Katy Perry, although most outlets say that singer is merely close friends with the handsome actor.
In other words: he’s single!
And so is Watson!
Which means this rumor may not be complete malarkey.
You may not return to a state of hyperventilation. In fact, we’ll go ahead and join you:
OMFG, ROBERT PATTINSON AND EMMA WATSON MAY BE DATING!!!!!!!!!!
