Emma Watson seems to be done with acting — at least for now.

The Harry Potter star has gone “dormant,” according to her agent, and will likely not take on any new projects for the foreseeable future.

The 30-year-old is reportedly stepping away from the limelight to spend more time with rumored fiancé Leo Robinton. The notoriously private couple has reportedly been dating since 2019.

Last December, a source exclusively told OK! that Watson’s latest film Little Women may have been her last.

“She is done with Hollywood,” said the source at the time. “She hated playing the game and the politics and really just came back for Little Women as a thank you to producer Amy Pascal for protecting her through the years.”

It's previously been reported that Watson did the remake as a "last-minute favor" to Pascal; she replaced Emma Stone, who was director Greta Gerwig’s first choice to play Meg March but dropped out of the film.

The insider added that Watson, who rose to superstardom as know-it-all Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film franchise, is one of the most sought-after stars in the industry. "It is insane that no one talks about it either, because she is so f**king bankable," said the source. "People need to understand that Emma was — well technically is — the biggest female star in Hollywood history."

The source believed that the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast was able to gross over $1.2 billion worldwide due to Watson's star power (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 also surpassed the billion-dollar mark) and noted that the actress has extreme pull over industry giants. 

"She is in a spot where she could get the green light for anything she wanted to make," the source insisted. "So she is going out on top."

Watson's agent first told Daily Mail that the actress was "dormant."
