It's over!

E! News has confirmed that Emma Watson and Matthew Janney have broken up. The Harry Potter star, 24, and the Oxford University student, 22, were first linked in January after they were seen packing on the PDA in the Caribbean. The private pair were seen rarely after that, though Janney did accompany his then-girlfriend on press trips in Spain and the United States. Things seemed to be going well heading into the fall, as photographers snapped Watson and Janney moving boxes out of the actress' apartment. It was not confirmed at the time if they had moved in together, but that didn't put a stop to speculation.

Per the U.K.'s Daily Mail, the exes broke up in an "amicable" fashion and never cohabitated.

Watson, who diversified her post-Potter acting résumé with roles in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, This Is the End and Noah, is currently filming a political drama, Colonia Dignidad, with Daniel Brühl and Julian Ovenden in Buenos Aires. She also shot a thriller, Regression, co-starring Ethan Hawke, and the actress will soon begin production on the film adaptation of Erika Johansen's best-selling young adult novel, The Queen of Tearling. Earlier this year, the famous Brit was named a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. In her first major speech, she launched the popular #HeForShe gender equality campaign.

Life isn't so bad for Janney post-split.

The rugby player helped his team defeat the University of Cambridge 43-6 Thursday.

And it's not as if Watson doesn't have her pick of the litter when it comes to men. Earlier this month, the internet practically begged the actress to start dating One Direction's Harry Styles after the superstars met at the British Fashion Awards. (The 20-year-old pop star gave Watson with the British Style Award.)

Watson has yet to date another celebrity, but maybe she'll make an exception for Styles.

He is, after all, quite charming. Just ask Taylor Swift.
