Romance rumours between Emma Watson and Glee‘s Chord Overstreet are starting to get a little bit harder to ignore. Less than a week after dating gossip escalated between the two actors, we finally have a—somewhat—official photo of the two enjoying each other’s company.
Watson, 27, and Overstreet, 29, were spotted holding hands in Los Angeles on Thursday, happily engaged in conversation. The Harry Potter actress, dressed in a striped tee, black jeans, and black booties, flashed a wide smile at her rumored love interest.
Since the dating rumours kicked into full gear last week, neither party has yet confirmed or addressed their relationship status. But perhaps this photo gives us a major hint.
A source told Page Six last week, “It’s crazy but, yes, they are seeing each other, although Emma wants to keep things quiet and private.”
Meanwhile, another insider told the site, “They are friendly, but are not in a relationship.”
Relationship speculation started with the couple in February after they were seen at a Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats concert together in Los Angeles.

But the buzz escalated last week after the Academy Awards, when they were spotted leaving the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty together, with a group of friends.

Watson is notoriously private about her personal life, so we likely won’t get any confirmation from her about her and Overstreet’s presumed relationship status. She told Vanity Fair last year, “I want to be consistent: I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can’t have it both ways.”
Even when she previously dated tech manager William “Mack” Night for two years until 2017, she avoided discussing him with the press.
