Fans are freaking out over rumours of Emma Watson retiring from acting

A report from The Daily Mail claimed that the Harry Potter alum's agent stated her career is "dormant," and her publicist confirmed she is "not taking on new commitments." According to a source, Emma is spending her work-free time with partner Leo Robinton, a Los Angeles-based businessman who she has been dating for over a year and is rumoured to be engaged to. Many fans flocked to social media to express their sadness over Emma's potential decision to quit the industry, with one tweeting, "Emma Watson just retired from acting could this year get any worse?" Another added, "Emma Watson's retired from movies. Down horrendous already." Still, some aren't convinced that the outspoken feminist is actually giving up on performing for good. She last appeared in the Oscar-winning Little Women adaptation in 2019. The bio of her Instagram account reads "Emma's official Instagram page is currently dormant and is not being updated." Whether Emma decides to return to the screen, or focus her attention elsewhere, she has legions of fans eager to see what she's going to do next.
