Harry Potter alumni Emma Watson has announced that she has split with her boyfriend Matthew Janney. The pair had been together for just under a year but decided to head their separate ways recently in total privacy.

The actress reported the breakup to the Daily Mail in an interview and revealed that they have not actually been an item for a good month at this stage. She described the split as "amicable" with sources saying that her busy schedule was one of the main contributing factors to the split.

Janney, a rugby player at Oxford University, was first spotted with Watson on a trip to the Caribbean back in January. Janney's guardian Coralie Day was over the moon with his choice of girlfriend beaming back then "We are thrilled to bits that he is seeing Emma Watson. Hats off to her for finding such a wonderful young man. There is nothing bad anyone could say about Matt. He is absolutely lovely."

Watson has spoken in the past about the cost of being a celebrity when it comes to her love life. She said "I don’t date people who are famous. I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them."

It has been a busy year for the actress best known for portraying Hermione Granger. She has been busy wrapping up filming on the thriller Regression alongside Ethan Hawke and drama Colonia Dignidad alongside Daniel Brühl. She also received recognition this year by winning Favorite Comedic Movie Actress at the People's Choice Awards for her role in This is the End.
