The past year has been amazing for Emma Watson. Between winning a BAFTA award for her portrayal of Lysette in the movie adaptation of Les Misérables and taking part in the Olympic opening ceremony as part of the British contingent, 2020 will go down as the year of Emmie. Now that her film career is taking off, it’s time for her to move on from her Twilight co-star and into a new relationship. But who will be her next celebrity suitor?

The latest rumor surrounding the actress is that she’s secretly dating none other than the talented and handsome Robert Pattinson. For those who are unaware, the two actors have been dating since 2014 and have remained relatively private about their relationship. They’ve yet to make their debut as an official couple, and given the backlash that came with their initial public outing, it would seem this is a wise decision. Since announcing their relationship in 2014, Robert has had a steady stream of bad press surrounding him. From cheating scandals to wild parties and paparazzi photos, it’s been a turbulent few years for the former tabloid favorite.

The Pros And Cons Of An Affair With Robert Pattinson

While the world was celebrating the news that Les Misérables would be nominated for seven Academy Awards, the backlash from the Twilight fan base was inevitable. When it was announced that Emma Watson would be playing Lysette in the blockbuster movie adaptation of the nineteenth-century French novel, many fans were upset that she would leave her co-star for another role. But after seeing the movie, it’s clear that Watson and Pattinson made the right decision. Les Misérables features one of the most complex and interesting heroines in cinematic history, and Watson was able to display a wide range of emotions while still staying true to the source material. Critics named Watson’s performance the best in the movie, and it’s clear that she’ll be able to carry a cinematic storyline all by herself in the future.

But is there more than one side to this coin? While some may see it as a negative that Emmie is leaving her Twilight co-star for a more mature role, there are actually some pretty good reasons why she’s doing it. For starters, in the past, Robert Pattinson has had a history of cheating on his girlfriends with much younger women. This happened to Jennifer Lawrence before she even started her career, and since then it’s been more of the same: Kristen Stewart (his Twilight co-star), Stella McCartney, and now, Emma Watson. While none of these women have committed adultery, it’s still a fairly unsettling thought to consider the number of women that Pattinson has knowingly slept with and not committed to.

Given that this is an ongoing issue, and that these women are still young enough to be his daughter, it’s not hard to see why he would want to keep his affairs a secret. In the world of celebrity, being labeled a “flamboyant bachelor” is still usually enough to guarantee you’ll be swarmed by tabloid newspapers and paparazzi cameras whenever you step out of your front door. Having an affair with someone well-known could make it much more difficult for him to keep his hands off of you. If you’re willing to give it a shot, there’s no telling how far your fortunes could take you.

Will They Last?

For those hoping that this will be the end of their romance, take heart. Just because these two are currently seen as one of Hollywood’s ‘it’ couples doesn’t necessarily mean that their infatuations will be eternal. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The moment that Emma Watson decided to end her relationship with Robert Pattinson was probably the happiest moment of her life. When she finally shared her plans with the world, she did so in a heartfelt Instagram post. While the actress has yet to officially confirm that she’s single, it’s fairly safe to assume that she’s now looking for a new celebrity partner. Given her history with the aforementioned Hollywood ‘it’ couple, fans will have no doubt who she’s looking for.

As for Robert Pattinson, while he’s still waiting for that phone call from Emma Watson, he’s been spotted with a host of beautiful women. Not all of them are underage, which is usually how this rumor starts. While he’s had his fair share of bad press over the years, he’s also been linked to some very well-known and respected women. The latest rumors surrounding the former tabloid favorite claim that he’s in talks to star in an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca. Based on the critically acclaimed novel by the same name, the movie will see Pattinson play the role of Lord Daukes, the wealthy and aristocratic owner of a large estate who sets out to seduce his wayward wife’s best friend, the beautiful and independent Rebecca. While this is a step up from his previous roles, it’s far from being his leading role. Pattinson is still awaiting that fateful call from Emma. In the meantime, he’s enjoying life as a freelance journalist, with whom he recently traveled to Italy to research.
