Emma Watson Reveals Biggest “Harry Potter” Fan in “Little Women”

Almost 20 years later, we’re still bewitched by the cast of Harry Potter.

Yes, the first film in the magical franchise—Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone—was released in November 2001, which means Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and the rest of the stars have been in our lives for two decades. Like Harry on a broom, time really does fly.

In the years since the Order of the Phoenix defeated Lord Voldemort and graduated from Hogwarts, many of the actors have gone on to get married and welcome children…and a few even dated some of their co-stars. Did you know Luna Lovegood and James Potter were once in a relationship?! Meanwhile, Ginny Weasley was engaged to one of the magical world’s most infamous villains. 

Most recently, Rupert and Devon Murray, who played Seamus Finnigan in the franchise, became fathers for the first time, while the notoriously private Emma was recently spotted with her businessman boyfriend. Muggles, they grow up so fast.

In honor of this weekend’s movie marathon of ever Harry Potter film ever on E!, we’re taking a deep dive into the love lives of your favorite stars.

That’s right, starting today, May 14 at 3 p.m., binge all eight Harry Potter films plus Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald right here on E! all weekend long. You can also watch them online any time.

Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel is currently in a relationship with actress Erin Darke, who he crossed paths with while filming their 2013 movie, Kill Your Darlings.

“We met on the set…and just got on immediately. It was one of those instant things where you’re like, ‘Oh, I really like this person.’ You just have a connection with somebody, and then suddenly it’s incredibly easy to talk to them,” Daniel said about their relationship in a 2014 interview with Parade. “It was one of those sort of situations.”

Emma Watson

Though Emma is very private about her love life, she was linked to rugby player Matthew Janney up until late 2014 and tech entrepreneur William “Mack” Knight for a stretch after that, a source telling The Sun in 2016, “Mack is just a normal, down-to-earth guy who has nothing to do with Hollywood, and Emma loves that.” 

Linked to Glee‘s Chord Overstreet for several months in 2018, then tech CEO Brendan Wallace later that same year, she professed her love to someone new in a 2019 interview with British Vogue.

 “I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” she told the magazine. “I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time, but I’m very happy. I call it being self-partnered.”

Soon after her comments went viral, however, Emma was spotted kissing Leo Robinton in October 2019 and the pair are still going strong, recently being photographed together in February 2021.

Rupert Grint

Rupert is another Harry Potter cast member that keeps his personal life on the down low, but he’s been dating actress Georgia Groome on and off for years. The Daily Mail posted pictures of the duo at dinner in Los Angeles back in March 2017 and one lucky fan took a picture with Rupert at the premiere of Georgia’s movie Double Date that October. Fast forward three years and they were welcoming their first child together in May 2020.

Six months later, Rupert joined Instagram and revealed his daughter’s name in his first post

“Hey Instagram….only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram!” the 32-year-old captioned a sweet photo. “Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert.”

After meeting in January of the same year at a Celebration of Harry Potter event at Universal Orlando in July 2016, Matthew (a.k.a Neville Longbottom) and Angela Jones got engaged in December of that year. “They’re both over the moon,” his rep told E! News at the time. “They got together in July and hit it off straight away.”

Tom Felton

Tom Felton had been in a relationship with Jade Olivia since 2008, but the couple reportedly split in 2016. He and Emma Watson briefly sparked romance rumors in the summer of 2019, but nothing came to fruition between the former costars, much to fans’ chagrin.

Evanna Lynch

Evanna, who played Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter, started dating singer-songwriter AnDel in 2017, but, according to their Instagram profiles, they have since parted ways.

Previously, she had an even more spellbinding relationship, dating actor Robbie Jarvis, who played Harry’s dad James in Order of the Phoenix.

Bonnie and Harry Potter co-star Jamie Campbell Bower got engaged in 2011, but split the following year.

In 2014, Bonnie opened up about her relationship with new boyfriend Simon Hammerstein, telling The Evening Standard at the time, “We got on really well. That’s why we’re still together. London’s such a melting pot that you can always find lovely people. It’s nice being with someone who respects the arts so we talk about everything together.”

However, the pair called it quits in 2015 after several years together and Bonnie appeared single…until she posted a Christmas message on Instagram with an unnamed partner.

Jessie Cave

After playing Won-Won’s girlfriend Lavender Brown, Jessie found love with comedian Alfie Brown, the couple now parents to , Donnie, 6, Margot, 4, and Abraham, who was born in October 2020.

Jessie detailed her “slightly extreme” birth experience, later revealing both her newborn son and boyfriend contracted COVID-19

I watched the news about lockdown from an isolated room in hospital. Poor baby is covid positive,” she captioned a photo of the little one in a hospital crib in January 2021. “He’s okay and doing well but they are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully.”

Instagram

Devon Murray

Devon, who played Seamus Finnigan in the beloved film franchise, welcomed his first child, son Cooper Michael Murray, with longtime girlfriend Shannon McCaffrey in February 2021.

“It still hasn’t sunk in just yet that we have our very own little boy,” the actor wrote in an Instagram post. “I can’t wait to make the most amazing memories with Shannon and Cooper as we begin our little family. I’m so amazed by Shannon and she is now my Hero. I’m so proud of her for everything she has gone through. I can’t wait to have you both home. It’s so hard having to leave you both. I will love you both forever until my last breathe.”

Kevin Hart Reveals How His Teenage Daughter Reacted to His Cheating Scandal

kevin-hart-reveals-how-his-teenage-daughter-reacted-to-his-cheating-scandal

Kevin Hart Admits to Telling Kids About His Cheating Scandal

Kevin Hart is getting honest about the tough conversations he’s had with his teenage daughter following his cheating scandal. 

The 41-year-old Fatherhood star visited Red Table Talk to speak with guest host Will Smith in a Father’s Day edition of the podcast that posted on Sunday, June 20. The project is typically hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris.

During the sit-down, Kevin opened up about dealing with his 2017 cheating controversy and how he explained the situation to daughter Heaven, who is now 16. The father of four, who married Eniko Parrish in August 2016, shares Heaven and 13-year-old son Hendrix with ex-wife Torrei Hart.

“You know, when me and my wife [Eniko] went through what we went through and the whole cheating display, my talk with Heaven—goddamn,” Kevin said. “That was one like no other.” 

He continued, “Getting my daughter back, getting my daughter to understand that I was sorry, that I made a mistake—that was real. To understand, like, I’m still Dad. You’re reading stuff. This is a child, right? Every child has the Internet. There’s nothing that you’re gonna come across that you’re gonna read that isn’t gonna have an impression. A child? Everything has a meaning.”

The comedian added, “My daughter was tough on me! Until this day, my daughter is tough on me. My daughter don’t play no games with her father, man.” 

In September 2017, Kevin posted a public apology on Instagram to then-pregnant wife Eniko for his “bad error in judgment” and added, “Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will.”

For her part, the 36-year-old model, who shares 3-year-old son Kenzo and 8-month-old daughter Kaori with the star, revealed last year during the documentary series Kevin Hart: Don’t F–k This Up that she still gets “sensitive every time I talk about” the cheating scandal.

On Red Table Talk, Kevin also recalled the discussion he had with Heaven about the situation surrounding his resurfaced homophobic tweets, which led to him stepping down as host of the 2019 Oscars ceremony.  

“When the whole thing started to happen with the LGBTQ+ community and the misconception of me, and what I was, and what I am, and what I feel, my daughter was so upset because she couldn’t process how people could think this about her father,” the Ride Along performer explained. “And it was so tough because this is when I started to realize how my fame has an impact on my household, right? There’s a certain level of obliviousness.”

Kylie Jenner & Khloe Kardashian Reveal Where They Stand With Jordyn Woods Today

kylie-jenner-&-khloe-kardashian-reveal-where-they-stand-with-jordyn-woods-today

Kardashians Reunion Recap Pt. 2: “KUWTK” Katch-Up (S20, EP14)

Jordyn Woods was once Kylie Jenner‘s closest confidant, but after a cheating scandal involving Khloe Kardashian‘s beau Tristan Thompson, the model found herself on the outs with the Kardashian-Jenners. So, where does she stand with the famous family today?

Thankfully, this question was answered during part two of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion, which aired tonight, June 20 on E!. As Khloe shared with reunion host Andy Cohen, she doesn’t currently speak to the 23-year-old influencer.

However, the Good American mogul made it clear that she doesn’t wish Jordyn any ill will. In fact, Khloe confirmed that she’s forgiven Jordyn. “I think that’s a huge misconception,” she shared. “That’s also the thing where some narratives aren’t as fun to pass around and spread like wildfire. I’ve actually tweeted, I’ve actually done Insta-stories, I don’t have any grudge against Jordyn. I think people make mistakes. People live and they learn. And I forgive both parties.”

According to Khloe, she couldn’t have forgiven Tristan without forgiving Jordyn too. As E! News readers well know, in February 2019, Khloe and Tristan, who share daughter True Thompson, split after reports claimed that the NBA player had gotten a little too close with Kylie’s BFF.

Jordyn later confirmed the indiscretion on Red Table Talk, where she admitted to sharing a kiss with Tristan. She denied ever sleeping with the professional athlete.

In the years following the drama, Khloe and Tristan have rebuilt their relationship, which includes co-parenting 3-year-old True. And it seems that the Revenge Body host has moved on with her life.

“I forgive Jordyn, or else I would be a prisoner in my life,” she said at the reunion. “I have to forgive these people for me. And it’s up to them to forgive themselves and to be accountable and learn.”

Yet, despite Jordyn’s previous claim that she’s apologized to Khloe, the KUWTK star maintained she never received a personal apology. Apparently, she never received the promised letter either.

Of course, this drama didn’t just affect Khloe as Jordyn was once Kylie’s closest friend. On the aftermath of it all, Kylie noted, “Jordyn and I did have a talk after that. When we were friends, we never thought that we wouldn’t be friends. It was kind of an overnight thing, and, you know, when she did something to my family, it felt like she did something to me.”

Kylie Jenner Says Jordyn Woods Scandal Needed to Happen

As to whether Jordyn will ever be welcomed back into the fold, Khloe said that’s a decision for Kylie to make. “I have told Kylie intimately that I would genuinely not care whatsoever if Kylie wants to be her friend again,” she concluded. “My sisters matter way more to me than any grudge or issue that I would have with another individual. And if I can allow Tristan back into my life, I need to allow the same forgiveness and acceptance of other people.”

Why John Cena’s F9 Casting Was Unlike Any Other Audition Process

why-john-cena’s-f9-casting-was-unlike-any-other-audition-process

John Cena Recalls Vin Diesel Meetup That Led to “F9” Role

John Cena tells E! News’ Daily Pop why his journey to play the brother of Vin Diesel‘s character in F9 was a unique experience for him. 

The 44-year-old WWE star explains he was initially told that Vin, who portrays Dominic Toretto in the popular Fast & Furious franchise, wanted to speak with him. But John had no idea he was being considered to play Dom’s long-lost brother, Jacob Toretto. 

“I wasn’t just offered the role,” John shares in an exclusive clip from the interview. “It was actually, ‘Hey, Vin Diesel would like to talk to you,’ and I had no idea what it was about. And I met Vin at his training center, which was staggering to say the least, and we just spoke. We spoke as two humans for a little under two hours. And then at the end, he took a small social media video.”

John explains that, rather than Vin telling him what he would need to know before joining such a massive franchise, Vin was assessing his passion for what the projects represent. 

“He was sizing up my character and interviewing the individual as to like, ‘Hey, does he even like this stuff? Would he even be interested in something like this—like, genuinely interested?'” the Bumblebee star continues. “And then thereafter, I was offered a part, and I didn’t know what I was doing, and then when I read the script, I was like, ‘I’m Jacob Toretto? Wow.'”

For his part, Vin tells Daily Pop that he immediately picked up on John’s “earnest eagerness” to join the franchise. Additionally, Vin explains that when he shared the footage to social media of himself spending time with John, he chose a caption that referenced his late co-star and dear friend, Paul Walker

“I didn’t give it much thought because if you go back to that day—and it’s all on Instagram—you’ll see what I captioned, which was, ‘Thank you, Pablo,'” the Bloodshot performer continued, using his affectionate name for the actor who played Brian O’Conner. “Because I felt like, like always, Pablo came through and helped me with the casting of Jacob, and he became Jacob.”

F9 hits theaters on Friday, June 25, and more coverage of the film will be featured on Daily Pop leading up to the release.
