The actress dressed for the chilly UK temperatures in a colorful striped sweater teamed with wide-legged black trousers and trainers.

With barely a scrap of makeup on, the star, 29, showed off her youthful looks.

Emma didn't seem to want the meet-up with her father to end as the two shared a lingering hug before she set off in a taxi.

Emma's dad Chris and her mother Jacqueline Luesby divorced when the actress was five. She lived with her mother in Oxford, spending weekends with Chris at his London home, after living in Paris before the divorce.

During an interview with Vanity Fair in 2017, Emma touched upon her relationship with her father following the divorce, explaining that their shared love of reading has helped them forge a close bond.   

'Books gave me a way to connect with my father,' she said. 'Some of my most precious and treasured moments... I just remember him reading to me before bed and how he used to do all the different voices. I grew up on film sets, and books were my connection to the outside world.'

Emma, who recently split from Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe, has also previously revealed that her parents' divorce has helped shape her own relationships, telling Porter Magazine in 2016 that 'as a child of divorce I am endlessly fascinated with finding the perfect formula for making it work.'

‘I think the biggest lesson I learnt is that there aren’t any rules. Sit with the discomfort. Don’t run away from it.’ 

Emma has been busy with work recently and will next appear on screen in the latest adaptation of Little Women.

And on August 4, the UN Goodwill Ambassador helped launch a free legal advice line (020 7490 0152) for those in England and Wales suffering from sexual harassment at work.

'It finally feels like people are realising the scale of the problem, and I'm certainly hopeful that with global standards such as the recent International Labour Organisation treaty on harassment at work, we'll start to see a new climate of prevention and accountability on this issue domestically,' the Time's Up activist told The Telegraph
