How did Emma Watson and Leo Robinton meet?

Not much is known about the finer details of their relationship as the two clearly like to keep things private, however, they are thought to have met through mutual friends. In the Vogue interview, Emma alluded that she was often set up by her friends rather than using apps. "Dating apps are not on the cards for me," she told the publication.

"I'm very lucky in the sense that because I went to university and because I've done these other things outside of film, my friends are really good at setting me up. Really good. And what's really nice is some of my best friends are people I got set up on a date with and it didn't work out."
