Janney's "second mother" Coralie Day — who took him in after his parents passed away — told the UK's Evening Standard that same month that she was "thrilled" with the pairing. The two were rarely photographed together after their PDA-filled vacation, but Janney occasionally joined his famous girlfriend on press trips abroad.

Though the exact timeline of their split remains unknown, the two have been busier than ever after breakup. The insider tells Us that the actress has "moved on and is currently busy with work and her lining up some philanthropic pushes."

A spokesperson for Watson told the Daily Mail, which first reported the story on Friday, Dec. 12, that the split was "amicable."

The film also stars Daniel Bruhl and Michael Nyqvist.
