Emma Watson and Roberto Aguire, who have been friends for years, have sparked boyfriend rumors with a recent outing.
Roberto Aguire: Emma Watson’s New Boyfriend?
Watson, 25, and Aguire, 27, were spotted out and about in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, Calif., on a lunch date. The two kept close to one another as they walked down the street following their meal, as Watson clutched a to-go bag in her arm. The two, who were casually dressed for the outing, were affectionate on their post-lunch stroll, leading some to think that things may have turned romantic between the two.
Watson and Aguire have been pals for more than 10 years, as they met on the set of the fourth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. While Watson famously starred as smart Hogwarts student Hermione Granger, Aguire was a special effects intern.
“We actually met on the set of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” Aguire told JustJaredJr. a few years ago. “I was doing an internship in the special effects department at the time and one day we had a chance encounter that lead to us spending half a day together exchanging stories and dance moves. We never really lost touch after that and now she’s one of my best friends.”
As Aguire’s acting career has taken off in recent years, Watson has been a big supporter. In 2012, she attended the premiere of his film Struck By Lightning at the Tribeca Film Festival. Watson returned to the film festival in 2014 to support him at the premiere of Boulevard, in which Aguire starred opposite the late Robin Williams.
Watson’s last public relationship was with British rugby player Matthew Janey, with whom she split nearly a year ago. Prior to that, Watson dated William Adamowicz, whom she met at Oxford University, back in 2011.
