Who Is Chord Overstreet? What to Know About Emma Watson's Boyfriend
Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet are an item.
After the two stars exited Vanity Fair's Oscar party Sunday evening around the same time at each other, the video footage (is she wearing his suit jacket?) sent people into over the edge as they speculated about the potential relationship and for a Harry Potter/Glee crossover. Overstreet did not pose for the red carpet at the event, whereas Watson did, and there was no photo evidence that they interacted each other during the festivities.
However, on Friday, March 9, a source confirmed to People that the actors are indeed together.
“They have been dating for a little bit now, but it’s still pretty new,” the source said. “They met through friends,” adds the source. “They might seem like an odd match but they actually have very similar personalities.”

He’s a Former Gleek
OK, “former” might not be appropriate—if starring in Glee is anything like being a Jet, you’re probably in it for life. Anyway, Chord was a regular on the series between 2010 and 2015. In fact, he hasn’t done too much acting-wise since the series went off the air nearly three years ago. Instead, it seems he’s focusing his efforts on music:
Being a Glee star, however, has a multitude of benefits (boyfriend-wise). Who doesn’t want to be serenaded with one of the top hits of the late 20th to early 21st century?
He Was Last Romantically Linked to Actress Brooke Butler
Butler, who has an active Instagram presence, last posted about her beau in October 2016, but it seems like things were pretty serious. They’d been together a year-and-a-half when she last shared a photo with him, and earlier that month she’d captioned a photo of the Glee star with “#loml” (love of my life).
In November 2017, it was reported that Watson had split with longtime boyfriend William Knight.
He’s Friends with Nick Jonas
Chord says he and Jonas are “good friends and drinking and cigar buddies.” Overstreet’s 2017 album Tree House Tapes was released by Island Records imprint Safehouse (which happens to be run by Jonas and Demi Lovato). To boot, Chord was featured in the music video for Jonas’s hit song “Bacon.”
