Emma Watson in Dallas with Johnny Simmons


Source: Twitter and Facebook

HollywoodLife (very unreliable site) was the first website to start a rumour about Emma and Johnny being together, Emma's reps denied it soon after.

Even though the picture is not clear, lots of tweets claim Johnny was with her.

Johnny was raised in Dallas and his family still lives there. She's meeting his parents?

Wow, and next week in Las Vegas.

People should really leave her alone and Johnny too,doesn't matter wether they are together or not

Anonymous said...

They probably are dating and just trying to keep it quiet re the media because it's early days hence the denial, altho I wouldn't be surprised if the "fiction" comment by the rep was relating to the part where the article said she was moving to LA to be with him. Also Emmas reps have a weird history of denying things, perhaps because the media have got the info too early and it's not official, but remember the denials about people tree and perks?
Either way I don't blame her for trying to keep it out of the rags if they are dating. Also as someone said Johnny is from Dallas ( in the same way Emma is from Oxford) so if she's there to meet his family and friends I'm very happy for them.

Anonymous said...

That's unfair re: emma;s reps

They didn't say anything about people tree and they just said that fans "shouldn't get their hopes up" regarding the Perks - and they were right - it took Emma's personal effort to get the movie rolling

Echee said...

But she intimidates guys, there is this fame wall, they can;t handle the circus around her (insert emma giggles here as if some innocent little flower) and everything else she ever says about dating is a complete and utter lie. She talks about, it's fair game and she's total BS. she came out today and said they were just friends. she said that about craig. she said that about rafael. Blah, blah, blah you know? Please wake up and start thinkig for yourself. Im tired of doing it for you.

flirty pics in pgh, bar in pittsburgh, mtv awards show and now dallas. seriously never beocme a private investigator. You wont solve anything. And it does matter because she lies and it should matter to you that she lies. When are you going to stop being a tool and snap out of this?

Anonymous said...

f*** off noob.she's trying to keep her own life out of the publicity,smth the same that you would do on her place.

Serge said...

Not a big business.Everyone lies.Remembered doctor Lightman?Even you,your parents,all of your relatives and all the people all around the world are lying.Because lying to hide your personal things from people is all right.Yes,she lies.Her reps are lying.Even i lie when i say that i don't know her private accounts on twitter and facebook.But noone gonna have it from me.

Eden said...

Echee, some respect towards people won't kill you, I promise.

I don't understand why Emma can't be just Friends with him.There are to many People out there who want's Attention and are telling Stories from their Imagination.Oh my,this is the same with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp Rumour.

People saw them Kissing,hugging out of Set,I mean really,come on.This is like Man's and Woman's can't be Friends

Anonymous said...

We all know Echee doesn't know what respect is. Funny that he's always so keen on criticising on people, but obviously cant't deal with it himself.
Echee, if you're so sick of thinking for us, just stop it then. It's obvious we don't care a fuck about what you say, so stop exhausting yourself and give up. I'm sorry to say this but you're making yourself look a bit ridiculous.

Anonymous said...

Echee, you don't have to think for me thanks...
Why do you come on here? If I don't like someone I just don't devote any time to them, that you feel the need to come on here to try and get people to your way of thinking is very strange. If you don't like her that's fair enough, maybe go find someone you do like. I don't think people have to worship Emma, I don't, I'm fine with people having negative opinions, but I think your time would be better spent elsewhere on something else... If you have problems with fans adoring people, why come on fansites? Other celebs get the exact same treatment. Coming on here is pointless for you.

Anonymous said...

bad timing. she said she wouldnt date another actor and her reps SLAMMED the rumors, not denied them, no they slammed them. that was suspicious.

but emma is certainly not shy as she always claims. she hooks up with a complete stranger after two weeks and then is introduced to his parents after a month? hope she doesnt become the next britney, with 5 marriages...

i wish her all the best but this business and her being a child of divorced parents say she will never have a lasting marriage or relationship.

Anonymous said...

for the pic: is not very clear, you can see emma but not really johnny. BUT people reported they are there and its johnnys hometown, so we can be sure they are there.

not means they are really dating.

Anonymous said...

I dont think Johnnys gay but the bar they were in was a gay bar. He probably brought her there to show her the dancing etc and it was karaoke night and it is a very popular place to bring people in Dallas to show them and she wouldn't get as hassled as in Billy Bobs. I do think their dating and just trying to keep it quiet at the start so there's no so much pressure on it. But something to bare in mind, we don't know all guys she's been linked to are actually straight.

Eden said...

"but emma is certainly not shy as she always claims. she hooks up with a complete stranger after two weeks and then is introduced to his parents after a month?"

There's nothing official saying Emma and Johnny are together or that they were in Dallas to visit Johnny's parents, why judging her about things that you're just supposing? I already went to my boyfriend's town because he had talked to me about great spots but I didn't meet any member of his family or friends and I already went to some friends' town and met their parents but we were not together and we've never been. It doesn't mean anything to me that she was Dallas.

Anonymous said...

Anon 3 above. I've said I wouldn't do lots of things in life, but life has a funny way sending those things your way and usually I've ended up eating my words. Id rather go for things and risk being called a hypocrite than stick ridgidly to things ive said, you cant control who you fall for sometimes. Also I got with my boyfriend quite quickly and consider myself to be shy, maybe she just feels really comfortable with him. As for the Britney comment, mass overreaction and sometimes being the child of divorced parents means people don't take marriage for granted and try much harder to make their marriage work...

Anonymous said...

Even if they are dating and she met all his family I don't get the big deal. We all met my brothers girlfriend when they were together for a couple of weeks, they are now together 2 years and engaged. It's not a big deal. If they're together I'm very happy for them and I totally understand why they'd want to deny it at this stage.

Eden said...

^I totally agree, especially the last sentence.

Johnny is a country boy. There is no way he took her to Dallas and didn't visit his parents. That would be frowned on where he comes from.

Denial doesn't make it real.

Eden said...

There is no denial anywhere, just opinions. Why can't people understand that? Why you could be sure she visited his parents but others couldn't be sure that she didn't? You make no sense.

Emma said she would LIKE to date someone not in the same industry, but you know, in never happens like that. you don't chose you boyfrien/girlfriend on stuff like that.

Birgit said...

I wouldn't ´t care if it turned out Emma lied about her and johnny. I completely understand she wants to keep it quiet, I don't expect her to tell everything about her private life. her youth wasn't really private, So she wants to keep everything she can keep private now, keep private. If that means she has to lie, than I understand.
I don't blaime her, I understand, because I'm a really fan and don't blaim her for not telling me everyone she ever was hooked up with.
Gosh..
You people are so tragic.
I do want to notice by the way that no one said anything about her outfit because of the Johnny ridiculousness..
I think she looks like a business woman, really Em, that's not something for a party, and definitely not something for a gay bar.

Eden said...

I agree, she already lied in the past by saying she was single when she was not. It's normal, she doesn't owe us anything. I never tell my family when I have a boyfriend, people do what they want with their private lives and shouldn't be judged for that.

Anonymous said...

I'm not judging emma, I'm judging some fans that come in denial.
I never deny my boyfriends, it seems pathetic to deny someone who wants ..

carto said...

sorry but I do not understand this discussion is based on hypothesis? who is denying who?, eden I missed something?. I do not care if they are boyfriends, lovers, friends with benefits, extaterrestres etc. If she is happy I'm also happy I do not want and I can not comment on anyone's private life. That's PRIVATE.

Anonymous said...

Erm,no one's in denial here. Truth is she could be dating Johnny (she probably is although there's no real proof) and she doesn't want to share it with the world. Which I think is pretty normal and clever. I wouldn't want my private life being written down in every tabloid all over the world.

Eden said...

Carto, with the number of Anons I'm lost. Some say they think Emma and Johnny are not together, some think they are and others insult you if you think they're not. I think that summarizes well what's going on.

carto said...

thanks eden, I thought it was some kind of secret information .... ha ha. I never Inmagine this drama.

I just think that is pathetic hide "mtv awards" and deny "declarations agent" to a person who is going with you.

sandy said...

since we're talking about denial. eden, because you did not publish the statements of representatives of emma?

Well, I did post it... kind of, I said they denied it so it's the same. I'm not sure I understand your question.

Kate said...

She's keeping her private life and perhaps beginning of a relationship under wraps from the worlds media and I don't blame her for doing that one little bit because I'd do exactly the same. Also what the rep said is being reported slightly differently depending on the site. I reckon they were annoyed at the moving to LA to be with him but more than anything.

Anonymous said...

At the start of a relationship I don't even change my relationship status on Facebook let alone confirm it to the world. I keep it private until I've sussed out my feelings a bit more and think the relationship can handle stuff, before that point I just tell my friends and family, and if she's dating him I'd imagine she's done the same. I think people have to realize that while yes we are very supportive of her, we don't actually know her and confirming or talking about something to us results in the whole world knowing about it and that would put an enormous amount of pressure on a new relationship. That is if they're even
dating, they might not be. Or they might wait until filming ends or all the promos for HP end before being a bit more public. But if I was in her position I'd probably get my camp to deny it at first, also as somebody said I think they were more intent on denying the LA part of the story.

Well said Anon. They have only known each other a month or so.

Eden do you have glases or do you need them. No offense. You write this stuff as if you are not sure. The picture is clear. That's johnny and that's emma in dallas at a bar. Why the would she be in dallas in the first place and in Johnny's hometown without him?

It's clever from Eden not to confirm rumors, because they are rumors and we're not supposed tio car about who emma is dating. it's her life.

She talks about her dating life. she opens up. She doesn;t talk about the guys but she says what the problem is. She claims to be a private person. She is not. More so someone wanting sympathy. That's how I see it anymore. The things she claims are so far fetched witht his dating stuff. It's rubbish.

Like Anon (I really wish Anons would chose another name, I'm lost) 2 posts before said, it's clear it's Emma but the guy she's with could be anyone for those who didn't read the tweets.

Anonymous said...

The picture to the right, that is johnny and emma. You don't need specialized computers or gadgets to notice that. It's sad that her fans are so caught up in her, they can't admit the most obvious things. Anyone who says that could be any guy facing emma is kidding themselves.

Eden said...

Nobody denied it was him, just saying.

Meep said...

I loved him in Scott Pilgrim. I approve of this couple (If it's true)

Echee said...

Ok then if its not johnny what business does she have in dallas? The hometown of johnny simmons. Anyone know? No guessing. No wishful thinking. You guys know her schedule it seems so what could it be then?

Eden said...

Second time, nobody denied it was Johnny.

Echee said...

"HollywoodLife (very unreliable site) was the first website to start a rumour about Emma and Johnny being together, Emma's reps denied it soon after."

"Even though the picture is not clear, lots of tweets claim Johnny was with her"

That sounds like a denial to me.

And Eden, as you know at pottershots they have photos there where you cant tell if it's her or not but they swear it is. These photos are clear as day and it shows something going on that she's claiming is not, just like george craig and her fans are covering for her or is just in denial because they can't think for themselves even though they've read her bemoans of dating for years and at the same time see how many guys she goes through. It's sad. Sometimes I think a majority of her fans are inexperienced 14 year olds that don't know anything.

Eden said...

Well, maybe it's a language mistake from me. Doesn't "claim" mean "assure"? (I'm not even sure "assure" is English). But I didn't mean to doubt the tweets because I think there were enough of them to be true.

And yeah, there are definitely people in denial who don't want to think that Emma dates, but there are others who are simply wary, which I understand (even though it's not my case), and they prefere to only believe in official statements or pictures where you can clearly see Emma kissing a guy, like the one with Jay. Even though it seems that you tend to do that, you really can't put everyone in the same basket, people's personalities are way more complicated than that (unfortunately, would be easier to understand people otherwise).

StrangeR said...

Men leave her alone - girl is just-having-fun, living her life however she wants, why don't you all do the same? I'm dating now few girls in the same time,so what? And yes, having sex with some of them, and it's all right, to have a life like all young people have. And it is all tem-po-ra-ri-ly, I'm not gonna marry any of them ever, and I'll have another bunch of girls next summer and will forget those that i have now saying "we are/were just a friends"(just the way it is), just the same what Emma doing right now,so what are you trying to prove us, and,actually,if all of us don't care of what you speaking here,for who you are going to prove it?

Echee said...

But strangR, guys are intimidated by her, its the fame wall, she doesn't know why guy X doesn't call her. That's what she has said recently on top of all the others thing the last 4 years. Thats why and you see her with guy after guy. So what she is having fun. THAT'S GREAT!! See I'm excited for her. =). That's not the point though. I could careless of what she does and with who. She has painted a completely different picture of the real truth. What's emma's image? Ok now tie that into her guy problems. If she is her image than why the dating issues? There are actors with millions of dollars like she has. Think outside the box unless you can't because you are 14 years old. I say that in general and not directed towards anyone.

StrangeR said...

You know, your English is suck. With such knowing of English I can easily call 14 y.o. you. And, each time while posting smth about Emma anywhere, just remember that nobody interested in your opinion about her. That'll do you good, lil' hater-ill-wisher.

Get a life Echee...I've seen your comments here and on some other news websites...its obvious you are a Bonnie Wright's fan and have a weird negative obsession with Emma...Go waste your energy admiring the celebrities you like (do something positive)instead of trying to make everyone hate someone you hate. Every1 lies...changes their mind over time...doesn't make them a criminal or worth of hatred. Emma is an amazing talented person. If she is dating Simmons, good for her and she should LIE about it to keep media at a distance.

@Anon above ... "Get a life Echee..."
You make some good points.

I am not sure I agree with the last one. " If she is dating Simmons, good for her and she should LIE about it to keep media at a distance"

Not all celebrities lie about and hide who they are dating. If it turns out they were dating during the MTV awards, then she should have let Johnny sit next to her. She posed for several pics with other celebs but not Johnny. I swear it almost seems Emma gave him orders to not get too close to her. That doesn't seem fair to Johnny.

Anonymous said...

I'm not so sure denying boyfriends/FWB/?? really keeps the press/fan interest away. It may make it worse.

Why couldn't she take Simmons as a date to the awards? Even if they are "just friends"? They get there pictures taken and move on. It's not a game of hiding and making the guy stay away out of supposed camera range.

She's dealt with dating co-stars rumors for years - dan, tom, rupert.

Most people have never heard of Simmons anyway.

Serge said...

To make it to the awards you need to have an invitation of a guest or of the nominated person, or to buy a ticket as spectator. Johnny was behind the stage,not even had a place in the auditorium.Emma brought him there without any invitation i guess,just as a friend.He even wasn't on red carpet.Shows us how popular and respected Emma is,no one would let her do that if she wouldn't be so famous.

Eden said...

That doesn't show anything. The invited very rarely show who they come with.

Anonymous said...

Emma had four seats. That seems a little usual itself. How many other celebs in the audience had their hair stylist next to them, then their PA, then their boyfriend.

nina said...

anonimusss you're right, Johnny is a cute puppy.

Anonymous said...

Serge, Johnny walked right up the red carpet with Emmas Pa and was sat 2 seats down from Emma for the whole show.

Anonymous said...

he didnt walk the red carpet, anon.

it would have been a good idea though.
red carpet interview:
"who are you with tonight?" "oh my good friend johnny, he is nice company for a night out".

and that would have stopped some rumours. this hiding thing is TOO obvious. and she would have given him some publicity.

its not usual that celebs bring "dates" (not romantic interest) to some shows. you sit around and are bored so you bring company. that might be the case for johnny but as much as emma was hiding him its obvious. for me at least.

she has the right to lie, yes. but it will take away a lot of her credibility in general.

Echee said...

Echee, it's quite obvious that these comments irritate you because you don't agree with them. Still there's no way to be so unrepectful. I would appreciate it if you would be less hostile or if that's not possible, just don't comment at all. You shut your comments down for a while because of people who were unrespectful and now you're acting exactly the same. And I thought you were against all the hypocritism...

do you know DM took down the article of her in dallas? I wonder why? ONTD did the same thing.

Eden said...

That's weird, if TMZ do the same then it'll mean her publicists are asking them to do so (for I don't know what reason).

Anonymous said...

Probably because they are dating or something and trying to elminate as much evidence from early on so when they do come out, people wont go, "You guys hooked up in only two weeks" and they can make it out like they were friends for a long time and fell for one another. I just went to TMZ and its still up. Pulling that article was BS and proves something but I don't know what yet.

Anonymous said...

No they've been pulled due to copyright issues with the pictures. All stories that don't have the pictures all still up. They are being all tight about who owns them and who asked who for permission to publish them.

As anon above said it's to do with the pictures. TMZ seem to feel that they own them.

Had a look and any media article that didn't use the TMZ photos are still there and any article that did seems to have been pulled other than TMZ of course. So I think that tells you...

Anonymous said...

daily mail is in the UK and TMZ is in the states. emma people have more pull in the UK. It just seems like they are trying to hide she was in dallas with johnny in the UK but failed miserably. I bet others are thinking the same thing. copyrights? they were tweet pics. There are no copyrights in that situation I think,

Eden said...

If TMZ tagged the pictures it's probably because they paid for them and then have the right to ask other websites to delete the articles that are using the pictures without they agreement. During the time she was with Jay there were also lots of rumours about them before the kissing pictures and the publicists never tried anything to delete these articles, they know it would be useless because once it's on the internet then it's not possible to delete informations.

Anonymous said...

so why do you still have the pictures up? are you not violating it as well?

Eden said...

I'm just a little blog, I don't think they know that I posted their article. And it's just a capture, maybe it's legal.

Kate said...

Anon above, I think you're overestimating the power of reps! A paper would only pull it if there's a legal issue. The daily mail has written lots of nasty articles about Emma, they would not pull a story just because they were asked to to protect her private life lmao. They aren't a newspaper with morals. You can only lean on newspapers over something very big, tabloids only care about selling papers. ONTD isn't in the UK and so your argument fails.
Also as someone in the legal profession I can tell you that there are copyright issues. The Internet is global, TMZ is accesible in the UK and the DM is in the US. If TMZ have paid for the pics, which it seems they have from the tags, other media must receive permission and may have to pay TMZ for them. There are huge issues with Facebook and twitter pics regarding ownership if the owner wants to assert that ownsership. This is probably why the articles were removed.
This isn't some sort of coverup. Places are still running the story. The DM and ONTD pulled it over the pictures, simple as.

Anonymous said...

I would think with DM knowing this they'd pay or seek permission, don't you think? Its not like DM is new to the business you know.

Kate said...

TMz wouldn't go after a little blog, a media website publishing their pictures is entirely different! The DM has a history of pulling things because they've jumped the copyright gun. I don't think Emma's reps would bother with pics of her in a bar with someone, it wouldn't be worth the fight. They'd just issue a denial if it came to it. There's no mass conspiracy here, this was a copyright issue. As other articles minus the pics still being there and the TMZ article still being there shows. Emma may be trying to keep that she's dating Johnny quiet, but taking the media over innocent pictures would be self-defeating.

Kate said...

You'd think wouldn't you! I never seize to be amazed by how badly that paper goes about it's business. I was surprised the pics were there in the first place. The spelling and typos and research is generally bad enough from them, you should have seen the Emma Watson spending time with transvestite fans article, which was Ezra miller in his rocky gear and their research into perks was laughable. That they published it without asking doesn't surprise me, that ONTD would as well doesn't either!!

Anonymous said...

Anon above, I think you have high expectations of what most people call the Daily Fail.
I think that other websites still having the story minus the pics and TMZ still having it with their pics, gives a fairly clear answer as to what happened. Copyright issues are a highly plausible explanation and the only one that I can think of realistically speaking.

Kate said...

Harry potter is immensely powerful but when they pull pics or stories they do so with good reason, Dan smoking a role up story, fake pics of Emma nude, pics of someone who looked like Rupert smoking a bong. They pull all the stuff from everything.
This is quite innocent, they wouldn't bother. It's also only gone from certain things with one common link, the pictures.

Anonymous said...

gossip sites and magazines are even extremely reluctant to post true information after they have been forced by a court, so i doubt they pull articles because of some illuminati conspiracy around emma...

its about copyright. the DM article had huge watermarks (TMZ) they didnt own the rights.
Maybe TMZ wanted an exclusive story or were demanding too much money, DM wont spend muc money on such a story as it just shows emma dacing, not even good quality.

Moreover: Her PRs certainly know about the Streisand effect. if they would start pulling stories about emma and johnny they would fuel the rumours even more and if it would come to light (which is like guaranteed in the internet) it would be a PR fiasco.
a gossip site will only pull stories if they are threated legally and even if her team tried to sue them no court would be on their side because its just an unimportant and not damaging article.

Anonymous said...

It would be impossible to sue, in the UK you have to prove that the story caused you damage and in the US it's even worse because you have to prove it was both damaging and malicious. So Emmas legal team would not have a leg to stand on, and why would they bother anyway, most people saw the article as being quite innocent and that she would have a go at line dancing proved that she doesn't take herself too seriously. And however private she is about Johnny and them avoiding the media, I don't think she'd take on the media over any story that isn't truly damaging, the media printed pictures of her kissing Jay and she just shrugged it off and carried on as normal, not really talking about her private life. Tonnes of celebs say they are single when they aren't and the media don't seem to take huge offense, Dan said he was single even after the media printed all the pics of him and olive, he's now admitted a relationship and that's fine, it takes a while for some people to go public. But threatening the media, trying to silence them or during them is a whole other ball game, they want your blood if you do that. A simple denial re Johnny is fine, but messing with the media is not worth it.
