Actress Emma Watson says she is happy that people feel empowered by her "self-partnered" label.
In an interview with Vogue, the actress said that she is entering the next decade with a new perspective on her life as a single woman. She said that instead of letting her relationship status define her, she has decided to live a "self-partnered" lifestyle -- hinting that she is happy being in a relationship with herself. The newly coined term soon became popular.
"I literally said it as a throwaway comment thinking it would go no further. And then I woke up the next morning and my phone's blowing up and I don't know why and it's all my friends messaging me being like, 'self-partnered'? This thing's gone crazy," she told E!'s The Rundown.
Watson said that she is "100 percent" committed to being self-partnered even when she is in a relationship.
"It's much more about your relationship with yourself and the feeling of not somehow deficient in some way cause you're not with someone," the 29-year-old explained.
