The "Harry Potter" star has opened up about his relationship with the actress, who he met on the set of "Kill Your Darlings" in 2012, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I think that's the kind of relationship I always aspire to have with someone I'm in a relationship with. You want that person to be your best friend. In the case of Erin, we definitely are," he said.
He added: "I don't think you can ever control how anything starts. It's not like I seek out that way of meeting people or think I have to be their friend first, but I think it's often a very natural thing to progress from into a relationship.
"The whole modern idea of 'friend zone' and all that stuff - that's a word I don't like very much."
