Emma Watson dismisses Borrell dating rumours

'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson has laughed off rumours she is dating rocker Johnny Borrell after the pair were spotted leaving a star-studded party together.

'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson has laughed off rumours she is dating rocker Johnny Borrell after the pair were spotted leaving a star-studded party together.

The actress - who plays Hermione Granger in the 'Harry Potter' franchise - was linked to the Razorlight frontman after the pair posed for photographers outside the Vanity Fair and Burberry Portraits party at the National Gallery in London on Monday.

Subsequently, the 17-year-old was spotted sharing a cab with the British rocker, 27, to another fashion party thrown by designers PPQ.

However, the rising star is shocked by the assumptions, and jokes she should create new romance rumours by getting snapped with other famous men - namely Orlando Bloom.

Writing on her official website's blog, the actress says: "I met Johnny Borrell who is modeling for Burberry at the moment and went on to PPQ in the same cab.

"I'd never met him before so that was great as I'm a big Razorlight fan. But goodness, I am really going to have to watch who I stand next to from now on!

"Maybe I should stand next to Orlando Bloom and then we can be said to be dating."
