Emma Watson: The Highest Paid Actress of the Decade
Emma Watson is the highest paid actress of the past decade.
The Harry Potter actress - who plays Hermione Granger in the wizard film series, which started in 2001 - has been awarded the title by the Guinness Book of World Records.
The 19-year-old’s starring role in the six films, as well as her voice part in animated movie The Tale Of Despereaux, helped take $5.4 billion worldwide, putting the earnings ahead of some of Hollywood’s big players including Julia Roberts, Halle Berry and Cameron Diaz.
Watson also boasts the highest average box office receipts per movie, with each of her films making an average of $897,100,000.
Emma attended the open auditions for the first Harry Potter when she was just nine and had no idea what she was letting herself in for. “I had no idea of the scale of the film series. If I had I would have been completely overwhelmed,” she said.
