Boy, Emma Watson sure does have a thing for Oxford men.
Just months after splitting with longtime boyfriend and Oxford grad Will Adamowicz, it would appear that the 23-year-old actress has found a new man from the prestigious university's deep pool of eligible bachelors.
According to sources, the new guy is 21-year-old rugby star Matt Janney. Watson and Janney were reportedly fleeing the winter doldrums in the Caribbean recently, where they were spotted "kissing and cuddling. "They didn't have a care in the world. Matt was very protective of Emma — often putting his arm around her," the source told Britain's Mirror.
The romance began when Watson attended the December 12 rugby match between Oxford and Cambridge, which went down at Twickenham Stadium in London. After the epic grudge match, Watson, who also attended Oxford, was spotted with Janney in Ping bar in London's Earl's Court to celebrate his team's thrashing of Cambridge.
Based on her past romances, we never pegged Watson as a sucker for the athletic type, but there's more to Janney than his ability to bash skulls on the rugby pitch. He's a former intern at the reputable law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Paris, he's currently studying French and Russian at Oxford, and he's fluent in Spanish. Wait, how do you say "we're jealous" in Spanish? (People)
