Remember Emma Watson? Harry Potter? Beauty and the Beast? Little Women? Yeah, that Emma Watson. She’s been keeping a fairly low profile as of late, and by that, I mean over the last year and a half. The only news generated about Emma Watson seems to come from others, such as a day of Emma Watson content when we in the entertainment media world tried to manufacture a beef between Watson and Seth Rogen (there is no beef). There were also rumors earlier this year started by that bastion of journalist integrity, The Daily Mail, that Watson had retired from acting, although those rumors were shot down not by Watson herself, but her manager. There may have also been rumors that Watson had gotten engaged to her boyfriend, Leo Robinton, but until you see the image of a ring on her finger in the pages of People magazine, do not believe it!
Now, having not tweeted since August 2020, Emma Watson has taken to Twitter on this random day to tell the world that nothing in her life is worth reporting to the public at the moment. Emma Watson has been chillin’, and there is nothing more to the story than that. There’s not even a story that there’s nothing to. There is a void of story. There is jack and sh*t to report.

Rumours about whether I’m engaged or not, or whether my career is “dormant or not” are ways to create clicks each time they are revealed to be true or untrue.
If I have news - I promise I’ll share it with you.— Emma Watson (@EmmaWatson) May 17, 2021
In the mean time please assume no news from me just means I’m quietly spending the pandemic the way most people are - failing to make sourdough bread (!), caring for my loved ones and doing my best not to spread a virus that is still affecting so many people.— Emma Watson (@EmmaWatson) May 17, 2021
I am sending so much love to you, hoping you’re ok and as well and happy as you can be in these strange times. And again, thank you to everyone working so hard to keep us safe and well.— Emma Watson (@EmmaWatson) May 17, 2021
Thank you, Emma. Thank you for allowing us to generate clicks from nothingness on this otherwise slow news day. The content generators have kicked into gear. You have given us what we so dearly wanted to hear, which is nothing. The old status quo! Keep on truckin’, Emma. Keeping on keeping on! You got this … nothing, which is a deficit of something, and may you continue to operate freely in that cone of absence.
