People are convinced that Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson are a couple, but is this a real relationship? Shipping is the act of fans wanting two people to be in a relationship (the word comes from “ship”) and shippers are people doing the shipping. There are many celebrities who are frequently “shipped” including the stars of the Outlander series Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, and Shameless’ Noel Fisher and Cameron Monaghan who play same-sex couple, Mickey and Ian. Shipping tends to involve those who play a fictional couple that fans want to see develop a real relationship. Shipping isn’t limited to television and movies either. The band “The Civil Wars” singers John Paul White and Joy Williams were frequently shipped, even though both were married to other people. Now, after a recent pairing at the Golden Globes, Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson are the latest celebrities to be shipped and fans are getting serious about this union.
Sometimes fans experience a dream come true scenario when the couple they shipped actually becomes a real couple. Robert Pattinson is no stranger to the phenomenon as he was involved with co-star Kristen Stewart for four years.
After he and Stewart’s relationship ended, fans of the couple turned their anger on his newest girlfriend FKA Twigs.
Fans of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev (who were a shipped couple on The Vampire Diaries) were so outraged when they broke up in real life, they attacked Ian’s girlfriend and now wife Nikki Reed vehemently on social media.
There’s no question, fans don’t play when they ship.

Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson both appeared in Harry Potter. While Emma Watson was one of the film series top stars playing Hermione Granger, Pattinson played the role of Cedric Diggory. Their joint appearance as presenters at the Golden Globes caused a frenzy.
Unfortunately, this appears to be solely a rumor and there’s nothing to indicate Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson are involved in a romantic relationship, such as photos of the two together on dates, video interviews of the pair enjoying time together, or official statements released by both parties.
According to the lack of media news announcing they are couple, it appears both are currently single and are friends. This doesn’t rule out a possible relationship between the two, and as you know in Hollywood, anything can happen.
What do you think? Do you want Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson to be a real “Harry Potter” couple?
