Emma Watson is Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actress
2009 was a great year for this 19-year-old ‘Harry Potter’ star.
Imagine being only 19-years old and already making more money than top Hollywood starlets such as Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker. That is a reality for Emma Watson, the leading lady of the Harry Potter films.
Vanity Fair magazine compiled a list of the top male and female earners in Hollywood last year based on research and various sources. Emma is first among the ladies with $30 million, thanks to the last two Harry Potter movies. She is the youngest person, male or female, to be on the list.
You may think Kristen Stewart of the Twilight franchise would come in at a close second, but Kristen only made $16 million in 2009.
As for the men, the first five spots are held by directors, with Michael Bay (Transformers) coming in at number one with $125 million. The first actor on the list is Daniel Radcliffe, Emma’s co-star in Harry Potter, who made $41 million. He beat out Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt.
