Emma Watson Felt Uncomfortable With ‘Harry Potter’ Earnings


Harry Potter actress Emma Watson was cast as Hermione Grainger when she was just 9 years old, and during her work on the earlier films in the franchise she had no idea how much money she was earning. In fact, the starlet received an allowance of around $80 a week, nowhere close to what she was making on the films! Once Emma was aware of her earnings, she didn’t have the reaction you might expect.

“By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get… serious. I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional.” Emma revealed.

Emma is now estimated to be worth about $32 million, but don’t expect her to be waisting it. In efforts to better cope with her fortunes, she enrolled in a course at Coutts Bank to help her learn how to manage her money.

Smart move Emma! We hope your co-stars are being as money savvy as you are!
