Emma larked around displaying the items, and proved she didn’t need any VIP treatment as she rolled up to sleeves and did some heavy lifting. 

Among the items Emma purchased were a coffee table, lamp and globe ornament, which she crammed into the back of her vehicle. 

Dressed for the balmy climes of Los Angeles, Emma donned a T-shirt bearing the coat of arms of Ghana that she teamed with black joggers and Vans.

It has even been reported that Emma introduced Leo to her lawyer parents, adding another level of seriousness to their relationship status.

For the recent Valentine’s Day holiday, the loved up duo enjoyed a romantic getaway to Mexico.

The move comes after Emma’s management team backtracked on their claims the actress would be taking a break from the film world.  

It was initially declared that her acting career was ‘dormant’ and that she was ‘not taking on new commitments at present’ in Hollywood.

Yet weeks later, her manager Jason Weinberg of Untitled Entertainment appeared to have a change of heart, stating: ‘Emma’s social media accounts are dormant but her career isn’t.’

Prior to her manager’s denial, it was suggested that she may be stepping back from the limelight to spend time with Leo. 

‘Emma has gone underground, she is settling down with Leo. They’re laying low. Maybe she wants a family,’ the source claimed at the time.

Although she is apparently not bidding farewell to Hollywood, Emma last graced the silver screen in 2019 as she starred in Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women.

Most famously, Emma portrayed beloved brainiac Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film franchised, based on the children’s novels by author JK Rowling.

The first film of the franchise, titled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, premiered in 2001, famously starring fellow UK natives Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe.

After eight films covering seven books, the world of Harry Potter came to an end in the summer of 2011 with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.
