"I say that I am my own partner ", she confessed. The starlet, who is about to turn 30, is rejecting the societal pressures put on women in her age group-particularly expectations in the relationship arena.

"I never believed the whole "I'm happy single" spiel", she told the magazine.

I was like Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? "This is not a big deal, '" she added. I feel stressed by all the messages around me.

"I've noticed that all of a sudden You begin to receive a wave of subliminal messages".

This term "self-partnered" has definitely struck a cord with many people, both women and men on social media who are in agreement with Watson.

Watson and fellow activist Paris Lees talked about everything from Watson's Harry Potter persona to fame and loneliness to her weirdest dating moment.

"If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you're not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career".

"It's so weird and otherworldly what happened to me", she said, adding that had she not gotten the part, she likely would have still pursued performance in some other way.

Wright said the term "self-partnered" is a wholesale rejection of the present understanding of marriage and its importance in young people's lives. So while I think making a new label for yourself is nearly laughable, I can understand the need, especially in Emma Watson's case since she is in the public eye. "Even people that are really close to me sometimes can't let it go". Just because I'm nearing 30 does not mean I need to be married with kids. It semaphores independence and contentment and, at the very least, reminds people to knock before they come barging in to ask if you've tried Bumble/tell you that you're much too picky/ arm-twist you into a date with their cousin who's "a bit shy but great craic when he gets a few drinks into him".
