Watson’s ‘protective boyfriend’

Emma Watson

Emma Watson’s new man is reportedly “very protective” of her.

The 23-year-old Harry Potter actress is said to be smitten with her boyfriend, 21-year-old Oxford student Matthew Janney.

She and the rugby player have been enjoying their first romantic getaway in the Caribbean this week, and according to onlookers they are on cloud nine.

“They didn’t have a care in the world. Matt was very protective of Emma – often putting his arm around her,” a source told British newspaper The Mirror.

“He was being a gentleman the whole time. He is clearly very much into her, but then who wouldn’t be, she is one of Hollywood’s hottest stars? They couldn’t stop giggling and smiling the whole time.”

Emma ended her long-term relationship with Oxford University student William Adamowicz last summer, according to her spokesperson.

The pair had met at Oxford in 2011 and reportedly began dating shortly after. William recently become embroiled in controversy after he was pictured with a white powder, a $100 bill and a New York City MetroCard splayed on a table in front of him. The 23-year-old denied the powdery substance in the image was a drug.

The actress is notoriously tight-lipped about her personal life. However, she appeared to open up about her relationship with Will while speaking about what she looks for in a man back in 2012.

“You always think that the guy is going to end up coming around and that you’re going to be the one that saves him – like the Oasis song,” she told the UK edition of Glamour magazine.

“Actually, I don’t think that you can change other people, but women always hope for the best.”
