Emma Watson, the British actress who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series, appears to have fallen for Hollywood star Johnny Simmons. The duo, who met on the set of upcoming movie 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower', were spotted sharing a passionate kiss in Santa Monica over the weekend, reports the UK's Daily Mirror.
Wearing a patch-work maxi shirt, Watson was snapped getting close the actor before they lunched together. One onlooker explained, "They arrived outside the restaurant andthey immediately shared a very tender kiss", adding, "They weren't at all shy about it and obviously didn't mind who saw. Emma reached up to kiss him and gazed at him adoringly before he pulled her in for a tender embrace". The couple were first spotted together walking through a park in Pittsburgh in May, although they vehemently denied any relationship and Watson's agent dismissed speculation as "complete fiction". Simmons, who starred alongside Megan Fox in the 2009 flick 'Jennifer's Body', is the actress's first boyfriend since she split with One Night Only singer George Craig last year.
'The Perks of Being a Wallflower', about a freshman named Charlie who is introduced to the world of sex and drugs, is scheduled for release in 2012. Based on the novel by Stephen Chbosky, the film also stars Paul Rudd and LOGAN LERMAN.
