Soon to turn 30, actress Emma Watson wants to term herself as 'self-partnered' instead of being called single.
There is a new word to describe singlehood and we have actress Emma Watson to thank for it. Watson, who is soon turning 30, stated that she preferred the term 'self-partnered' instead of being called single in a new interview to British Vogue.
“I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” Watson said. “I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time, but I’m very happy (being single). I call it being self-partnered.”
Watson also revealed her upcoming birthday initially set off some anxiety and stress about having a partner and building a life with them.

“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, or you’re still figuring things out ... There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety,” she said.
