An eyewitness also spots the 'Harry Potter' star and her 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' co-star 'holding and hugging each other' when he dropped her off at a Los Angeles restaurant.
Rumors suggesting Emma Watson is dating Johnny Simmons might be true after all. When going out for a lunch in Los Angeles recently, the Hermione Granger of the "Harry Potter" series was spotted sharing a playful kiss with her co-star in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower".
According to Us Weekly, the rumored couple "looked very loved up" when Johnny dropped Emma off at the restaurant in Santa Monica on Thursday (August 4) afternoon. An eyewitness said that before they parted, the pair held and hugged each other for a while and playfully kissed. The observer added, "[They] seemed very open and not trying to hide their affection."
Emma and Johnny have been linked romantically together for quite a while now. The twosome were photographed hiking together in May, and were reportedly very flirtatious with each other at an afterparty for MTV Movie Awards in June. Inside source previously gushed that Emma "loves how down to earth and normal he is and thinks he's the nicest guy."
Romance rumor aside, Emma has earlier said that it is hard for her to find a boyfriend. She told Sunday Times Style Magazine, "I'd say to my friends, 'Why hasn't X called me? Why doesn't anyone ever pursue me?' They're like, 'Probably because they're intimidated.' It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating."
