She has complained that men find her intimidating. But now it seems Emma Watson has bewitched her latest co-star after they were spotted embracing in Los Angeles. Emma, 21, looked ‘besotted’ as she tenderly kissed Johnny Simmons, 24, who stars with her in the upcoming £30 million drama The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. The couple have been spotted together before, but previously it was denied they were in a relationship. Yet there could be no doubt that they are deeply involved as the Harry Potter star, in a multi-coloured maxi skirt, white sweater and sandals, and Johnny were locked together in a lingering clinch outside a restaurant in Santa Monica.An onlooker told The Mail on Sunday: ‘They were all over each other, kissing and hugging. It was very sweet to see. She looked utterly besotted. A girl recognised her and approached her. Emma was polite and acknowledged her, but she just wanted to be with Johnny and was clearly under his spell. They’re obviously head-over-heels in love.’
Johnny has spent the night with Emma at the upmarket house in Santa Monica where she has been staying with friends.
A source said: ‘The moment Johnny turned up Emma was all over him. He stayed overnight at least one night this week. It is clearly a serious relationship.
They might have denied it before but they don’t seem to be trying to hide it now.’
Another friend said: ‘Emma loves how down-to-earth and normal Johnny is. He’s very charming and sweet.’
