Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet were seen exiting Vanity Fair's Oscars afterparty together on Sunday. They had previously been seen at a concert together in February. An "insider" told Page Six, "It's crazy but, yes, they are seeing each other, although Emma wants to keep things quiet and private." However, another source insisted, "They are friendly, but are not in a relationship."
That "not in a relationship" quote came out on March 8. But on March 9, photos started making the rounds of the two actors holding hands:

Those look like professional photos -- paparazzi shots, but definitely not suggesting "Emma wants to keep things quiet and private." Not saying the romance is fake, but the photos don't look like someone just happened to spot them.
Anyway, fans had big reactions to the musical theater dream team:
"Emma Watson was photographed with GLEE star Chord Overstreet"
