And while it was a kind of insane thing to wake up to, the actress revealed she is "so happy people feel empowered" by the new term.
But the 29-year-old was quick to note that you don't have to be single to partner with yourself.
"It's much more about your relationship with yourself and the feeling of not somehow deficient in some way cause you're not with someone," she explained, adding that she is "100 percent" committed to being self-partnered even when she's in a relationship.
But could her clarification that even the booed-up can give themselves this attention be a sneaky hint that she is, in fact, seeing someone?
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight last month, Emma's Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint – who played Harry's best friend Ron – revealed there was definitely a little something going on on set between two of the cast members, sparking rumours that the romance may have picked up again in recent times.
"There was a little bit of a spark."
Realising he'd probably said too much about his co-stars, Rupert very sweetly tried to backpedal. "We were kids," he laughed, adding that he didn't want to stir up any drama. "It was like any kind of playground romance..."
While neither Emma nor Tom has commented on Rupert's statements, the pair do appear in each other's Instagram feeds fairly often – and they definitely look cosy when it happens!
