Fans of Harry Potter and Glee got the mashup they never knew they needed when it was recently revealed that Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet are a couple. While it isn't clear where or when they first met, photos of them taking a romantic stroll in LA had fans (including us) swooning over how cute they look together. The 27-year-old actress is certainly a catch; not only is Emma an outspoken supporter of gender equality, inclusion, and literacy, but she also happens to be a Brown University graduate and a certified yoga and meditation instructor. Not too shabby.
While Emma's past relationships have been pretty under the radar, 29-year-old Chord has carried on romances with a handful of high-profile actresses and models over the years. He's been rumored to have hooked up with Lily Collins, Halston Sage, model Elsa Hosk, and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson and has had public relationships with actresses Josie Loren, Brooke Butler, and another very famous Emma: Emma Roberts.

Chord and Emma began dating in 2011. Their relationship only lasted for a year, but it wasn't without its fair share of drama. After their split in January 2012, Us Weekly reported that the niece of Julia Roberts "did everything possible to ice out" Chord, even ignoring his text messages and leaving him waiting outside a Golden Globes afterparty. A source revealed that "Chord was waiting outside the CAA party at Sunset Tower waiting for Emma to come get him at the door," where he was overheard saying, "Emma does this all the time when she doesn't want to see me." Yikes.
Emma would go on to have roles in movies like Celeste and Jesse Forever and We're the Millers and recurring appearances in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story series. She also portrayed sorority leader Chanel Oberlin on Scream Queens for two seasons. We're definitely looking forward to more cute appearances between Chord and the new Emma in his life.
