It appears to be just supposition, as the two of them are not dating. Watson does not appear to have a crush on her former co-star. Felton and Watson appreciate and respect one another in the same way that any pair of friends would. There is no need for anything more than that.
Felton was born on January 1st, 1984, in London, England. He is an only child who lived with his mother and father until he went to school at St. Thomas' School in London. When he finished school, he moved to New York City to pursue a career in modeling. It is there that he became acquainted with Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling who hired him to play Ron Weasley in the film adaptations of the series.
After playing such a popular character for several years, Felton decided to write and release his own book titled "The Boy Who Lived: A True Story of Faith and Fantasy" which tells the story of how he came to play Ron in the first place. The book was published in 2010 by Crown Publishers.
On the personal side, Felton married actress Katie Holmes on May 24th, 2004. They have one son together named William James Holmes Felton. The couple divorced in 2006 after only 18 months of marriage.
Felton, In 2011, the year the final "Harry Potter" film was released, Watson told Seventeen that she developed a crush on Felton while filming the first two films, and that he was her first infatuation altogether. She added that they remain good friends to this day.
Watson also revealed in the same interview that she has a love-hate relationship with fame. She said: "I didn't know what to do with myself when I reached a certain level of success. I wanted to keep going, but there's only so much you can do."
She continued: "In the beginning, it was wonderful. But then it became this big thing that was controlling my life. I needed time to think and write and create."
Watson released an essay titled "Why I Do What I Do" in November 2010, which was published in The New York Times Magazine. In it, she explained that she chose to use her fame to help others because it felt right. She also wrote that she believes people can relate to her work because we all want to be accepted for who we are inside and not for our appearance or material possessions.
In April 2013, Watson appeared in a video promoting "Heal Me", a campaign created by Apple to raise funds for cancer research. The video showed several celebrities including Watson sharing their experiences with cancer.
In 2011, the year the final "Harry Potter" film was released, Watson told Seventeen that she developed a crush on Felton while filming the first two films, and that he was her first infatuation altogether. She added that when they finally met, he was "so sweet" and that she felt like she knew him already because they had worked together for so long.
Watson also discussed her attraction to Felton with Oprah Winfrey during an interview that was broadcast in 2012. She said that although he is not someone who would recognize a crush, she did feel something for him while they were working together.
As far as any romantic feelings go, she explained, "I think I probably had a crush on him at some point, but it's hard to say because we were working so much. But I think I probably did."
Watson, 31, is now involved with Leo Robinton. The relationship status of Tom Felton and Emma Watson is "something"! "We are something," Felton stated, referring to the fact that we've been really close for a long time. I also admire her. She's great in my opinion. She's one of the best actresses out there right now. " He added, "I think she's amazing. We have a good time together on and off screen.
They met on the set of Harry Potter when Watson was just 14 years old. The two began dating soon after and were engaged for three months before calling it quits. They reunited a year later but broke up again just over a month into their engagement.
Since then, they've remained friendly friends. In 2011, Watson admitted that she was "crushed" when Felton called off his wedding to actress Olivia Watson. She added, "He's such a sweet guy and I'm so happy for him."
In 2012, they were both nominated for Oscars for their work in the film adaptation of Les Misérables. While they didn't win either prize, they did share the stage during the ceremony singing "One Day More."
Are Tom and Emma dating now? It seems like it might be interesting if they got back together.
Emma Watson had a crush on Tom Felton. Watson has claimed that she was head over heels in love with Tom Felton during her early days on the Harry Potter set. According to Eonline.com, the Little Women actress told Seventeen: "I had a great crush on Tom Felton in the first two films. He was my first love."
However, when asked if Felton had ever returned her affection, she replied: "No. I think he liked being part of the phenomenon rather than being romantically involved with it."
She also commented on rumors that Felton is her real-life husband Daniel Radcliffe: "They're not married. They've never said they were married."
Felton himself has always denied any romance between him and Watson. In an interview with Closer magazine, he called their relationship "purely professional" and added: "We weren't friends before the job, and we aren't friends now."
Watson's mother also dismissed reports of their friendship after the fact, saying: "They met on a set and became friendly afterwards - that's all."
However, Felton did admit to being a fan of Watson's work prior to meeting her: "I really like Emma's work - she's talented. We'd see each other around the sets but nothing more than that."
The majority of their "proof" appears to be wishful thinking on the part of certain devoted admirers. Watson dismissed speculations of a sexual relationship between her and Pattinson in 2009, telling the New York Daily News, "We're simply friends—but he definitely was fantastic to work with!" She later explained that she felt uncomfortable being labeled as someone's girlfriend or wife because it implied a commitment she wasn't ready for yet.
Pattinson himself has never publicly commented on rumors of a romance between him and Watson, but in 2011, he did say they had become good friends after working together on the final two Harry Potter films.
Watson also has no interest in marrying anyone anytime soon, saying in an interview, "I don't think I could handle that kind of pressure at this stage in my life."
In December 2012, reports surfaced suggesting that Pattinson and Watson were dating again. The British newspaper the Sun claimed that the two were seen canoodling during a break from filming in France. They also reported that Pattinson was "devastated" when Watson broke up with him for a second time. However, neither Pattinson nor Watson have confirmed or denied these reports.
