Emma Watson Is Set To Become Highest Paid Actress
Emma Watson is about to snag a pretty sweet title!
According to The Evening Standard, the actress is set to beat out Jennifer Lawrence as the highest paid actress in the world. Though Emma was paid $2 million for her role as Belle in the massive hit, Beauty and the Beast, the 27-year-old star made a deal with Disney granting her a portion of the movie’s global earnings. The live-action film has currently earned a record-breaking $1 billion, so her cut could add up to an additional $15 million. Emma also earned a reported $50 million for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise.
The founder of Anderson Group Public Relations, Liza Anderson, told The Evening Standard:
“I think she has the world in the palm of her hand. She is the biggest star in the world right now. She can star in anything. She’s America’s sweetheart and she’s a global sweetheart. There’s no better position to be in right now. I’m sure she has Hollywood banging at her door.”
Good for you, Emma!
