In an interview with the Daily Mail, the 32-year-old actor expressed admiration toward his fellow "Harry Potter" alum and seconded Watson's move of identifying as "self-partnered."
In a December cover interview with British Vogue, the actress, 29, talked about the anxieties of turning 30.
“I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” she said. “I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time, but I’m very happy (being single). I call it being self-partnered.”
Felton can relate.
"I like it! It’s the first I’ve heard of it, but it’s great. I’m in the same category, to be honest with you, quite happily self-partnered," he told the Daily Mail.
He added that he thinks people need to love themselves before they're able to love anyone else.
"I think in this day and age it’s not a necessity to be with someone just for the sake of being with someone, so I like the idea of self-partnering," Felton said.
The two meet up sometimes to hang out, whether it's to skateboard or for guitar lessons.
"She’s an incredibly smart and lovely young lady, so it’s always nice to bump into each other and slightly reminisce about old times but also about looking forward to the future," Felton said.
He feels that way about all of his former "Harry Potter" co-stars, saying it always feels like "no time has passed" when they all get together.
