Emma Watson and Matthew Janney have split after a year of dating, her rep has confirmed. The actress and the Oxford University rugby player parted ways a month ago but still remain friends.

Watson and Janney reportedly broke up because of her busy work schedule. A spokesperson for Watson told the Daily Mail that the split was “amicable.” Despite previous claims, Watson and Janney had not moved in together in September.

As Gossip Cop reported, Watson, who studied at Oxford, met Janney after a rugby game against rival Cambridge last December. The two were later spotted kissing on a romantic Caribbean vacation in January. “I don’t date people who are famous,” Watson told Elle Australia in March, noting that she feels bad when her fame affects the non-famous people she dates. “I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me,” she said. “I wish I could protect them.”

Watson had a busy 2014. The actress and scholar graduated from Brown University in May and later joined forces with UN Women to launch the He For She, an organization dedicated to gender equality. “Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it is a human rights issue that requires my participation,” she said about the campaign. “I commit to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls.” What do you think of Watson’s new single status?
