Why Did Emma Watson’s Ex-BF Dump Her?

She’s grown up to be quite the lady since we first saw Emma Watson ten years ago in the first Harry Potter movie. She’s smart, educated, beautiful, talented, classy and more – so why did Emma’s ex-boyfriend Francis Boulle dump her? The Made in Chelsea British reality star and former flame of the Harry Potter star recently opened up and revealed why their romance didn’t quite work out.

“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,” Francis revealed to Heat magazine.

“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 admits that he and Emma are no longer in touch, and that she’s a very different person from what the public sees via the media.

“We do share a lot of mutual friends and our paths cross from time to time. 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.”

Too bad they didn’t work out… not. “Some child actress”? Way to word it Boulle!

It seems that Emma isn’t dwelling on the pair’s former relationship: she is currently dating Johnny Simmons, her co-star in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

If you were in Emma’s shoes, would you want your ex to reveal why he dumped you? Do you think Francis’ reasoning for dumping Emma was valid, or did he make a huge mistake?
