Are You Surprised That Emma Watson Is 2009's Most Moneymaking Female in Hollywood?

Are You Surprised That Emma Watson Is 2009's Most Moneymaking Female in Hollywood?

Emma Watson may only be 19, but she is quite the box office powerhouse. Amid the news that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is going to be released in 3D and have a presence during this Sunday's Super Bowl, Emma is the highest woman on Vanity Fair's list of Hollywood's 40 biggest moneymakers.

Her two latest Harry Potter paychecks account for her $30 million takein, which puts her on top of other powerful ladies like Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz or Jennifer Aniston. Plus, Emma is also a burgeoning eco-clothing designer and budding fashion icon in her own right. With all that considered, as well as her young age — are you surprised that Emma Watson was 2009's most moneymaking female in Hollywood?

Gosh, what do you do when you're that young and you have that much money? That's just crazy.

I don't think she is all that talented but she does seem intelligent and down to earth. I'm glad it's girls like her who are pulling in the money rather than the trainwrecks her age.

I was extremely happy to here this news, she's one of my favorites! I'm glad that she's doing so well. She has a very good head on her shoulders. College, movies, fashion...what can't this girl do!? Can't wait for the last HP films either :)

We may not see her in the American media too much (and I'm guessing she kept a relatively low profile in England too, or as much as she can) but she is an INTERNATIONAL star. I think only PopSugar is surprised (the question kind of comes off that way, just a bit). She has Harry Potter films and her endorsement deal(s) with Burberry and she has been acting for sometime now. I'm not surprised.

i kinda can't stand the thought of any person, let alone a teen, making that much money in a year, but i'm glad it's her. i like daniel radcliffe a lot too. they both seem really mature and likable, especially considering the astronomical wealth and fame they've attained at such a young age.

Yup, never discount the Harry Potter machine's power and potential for profit (yay for alliterations!). Good on Emma.

It's not too surprising... but if someone had asked me I would have guessed Zoe Saldana. She had two huge blockbusters out this year as well as some other movies.

I would never guessed that she'd be number 1, but after thinking about it, it makes sense... Harry Potter aside, she probably is well paid for the Burberry ads, her clothing line, etc.. Good for her, she seems nice!

yes. i read this in 2009 and was surprised then as well. it still baffles me that HP causes the highest grossing 'whatever' you know? there are tons of franchises that make insane amounts of money too. it's good for her though.
