Emma Watson took to Twitter on February 22 to deny she is dating Prince Harry.
Rumors of the royal and Harry Potter actress’ dating began last week in the Australian publication Women’s Day.
The magazine claimed Prince Harry had “found love” with Emma Watson after they supposedly went on “secret dates”.
The publication also alleged Prince Harry initiated the romance after hearing Emma Watson had split with ex-boyfriend Matthew Janney.
Women’s Day went on to describe one of their alleged dates, and quoted an “insider” as saying Prince Harry is “smitten” with Emma Watson.
According to Emma Watson, the claims just aren’t true and she tweeted: “WORLD ♥ Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!”
Emma Watson seems to be referring to the numerous false stories about her that have emerged over the years, including the wrongly repeated rumors that claimed she would star in the just-released Fifty Shades of Grey.
The film adaptation of the best-selling novel Fifty Shades Of Grey will be released in the US on August 1st, 2014.
The film has been highly anticipated, given the widespread success of the books (70 million copies of E.L. James’ trilogy have been sold).
And yet, no cast members have been officially named as the stars of the Sam Taylor-Johnson feature.
The story follows the relationship between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, a college student.
The book received as much criticism as it did praise.

It is rather uplifting that Sam Taylor-Johnson, 46, has been attached to direct, despite having a rather small list of credits to her name.
As Forbes magazine noted, this may have been uncommon for women to date, but not for men – for example, Rupert Sanders was attached to direct Snow White And The Huntsmen with only commercials as credits.
The internet has been overflowing with rumors of who would be cast in the two lead roles. And while there has been no official confirmation as to who will play Christian Grey, some stars have categorically denied it.
Despite Sam Taylor-Johnson’s much younger husband Aaron Taylor-Wood, 23, being a potential choice for the male lead, his publicist told USA Today quite simply that: “Aaron is not doing 50 Shades Of Grey.”
Ian Somerhalder and Robert Pattinson have both been pinpointed as potential players for the male lead, but still nothing is official.
Emma Watson famously denied any potential involvement in the film via her Twitter account, writing: “Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.”
The movie will be produced by Dana Brunetti, producer of The Social Network and TV series House Of Cards, and distributed by Focus Features.

The young actress told GQ that she relished the opportunity to play an “amoral” character such as Nikki.
Emma Watson said: “When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it.
“The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate?
“But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job or my role as an actress could be.”
She plays the leading role in the Sofia Coppola-directed movie about the real life Bling Ring or The Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch as they were known, who were arrested in 2009 for a string of break-ins at the homes of stars including Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.
Emma Watson also told GQ that she is doing her best to vary the roles she signs up for in a bid to avoid being pigeonholed.
“I was open-minded about doing anything but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I would never get out again.
“This has been a really big departure for me. It’s a really big character. That’s so exciting for me because it meant I was really acting,” she said.
The complete interview with Emma Watson will appear in the May issue of GQ magazine, out on Thursday, April 4.

Emma Watson isn’t the only name to have been linked to the role of Anastasia Steele in the highly-anticipated film.
Mila Kunis, Kristen Stewart and Nina Dobrev are among other stars whose names have been suggested for the part.
Keira Knightley was also linked to 50 Shades but she was unenthusiastic about taking on the raunchy role.
When asked if her next project will be a more risqué literary adaptation than she has done in the past, Keira Knightley replied: “No, it’s not. It’s not going to be Fifty Shades of Grey.
“You know, I normally don’t like to give a definite about anything, but I can definitely say it will not be Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Meanwhile, when it comes to who will be taking on the title role of Christian Grey, stars including Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron have been rumored.
But one of the favorites to take on the part is Ian Somerhalder.
Speaking recently about whether or not he would want to star in the film, Ian Somerhalder replied: “There are so many young boys up for this role. I think they have a very big job ahead of them, casting this role…
“So, I can’t say anything other than, it’s a very interesting story and whoever plays that role is going to have a lot of fun rehearsal time!”
Emma Watson dumped again; this time for being too famous.
Emma Watson, know for her role in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”, revealed thather ex-boyfriend dumped her because she’s too famous.
She dated Francis Boulle, who now stars in British reality TV show Made In Chelsea, for a short period of time. Francis Boulle claimed he broke up with Emma because he did not want to become known as the Harry Potter star’s boyfriend.
“We had a bit of a thing a while back, but I have always been an ambitious person and I want to achieve my own notoriety for what I’ve done,” claims Francis Boulle. “That’s why I chose not to pursue it any longer, because I didn’t want to be the boyfriend of some child actress.”
He added in an interview:
“I actually really like Emma. She’s a really cool person. She’s a very different person to who she is in the media. That’s what I liked about her – she’s very interesting.”
When Reality TV star was asked whether they stay in touch, he admitted he was no longer in regular contact with the actress, though they occasionally run into one another.
“No, but we do share a lot of mutual friends and our paths cross from time to time.”
