Johnny Simmons and Emma Watson
With news and rumours floating around about Emma Watson dating co-star from “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” Johnny Simmons, we were reluctant here to post anything regarding the couple. It seems that over the weekend though, it was confirmed that the two are, in fact, dating. Meeting on the set of “Wallflowers”, Emma and Johnny began hanging around together, including taking strolls through Pennsylvania in between filming.
Johnny James Simmons was born in Montgomery, Alabama on November 28, 1986, but was raised in Dallas, Texas. His first film in Los Angeles was entitled “My Ambition”. When casting notices went out, there was a misprint stating that the production was looking for a lead female to play Julie Walters. He contacted the production office in hopes they would have a part for a male and was asked to audition for the lead. Producers cast him on the spot and never bothered to rerun the correct casting notice, which in turn, got him his first manager. His big break came on only his second feature-film audition, “Evan Almighty”, in which he plays Dylan Baxter, opposite Steve Carell and Lauren Graham. Since, he has appeared in films such as “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”, “Jennifer’s Body”, and “Hotel for Dogs”.
Here’s to the happy couple! Congratulations Emma & Johnny!
