Harry Potter and Hermione Are Best Paid Actors

Posted by PZ on February 6th, 2010

Nope It’s not Brad Pitt or George Clooney who was the highest paid actor of 2009 – it was in fact Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who plays Harry Potter. Angelina Jolie didn’t even make as much as his co-star, Emma Watson who is the highest paid actress!

Emma Watson took home a whopping £20 Million for the final two Harry Potter films, while Daniel managed to bag a cool £25.6Million last year. Considering these two were basically unknown a few years ago, this wealth must be quite overwhelming. But what do you do when your drowning in cash and have only lived through two decades?

Well, I don’t think that this is the end of either of these two stars who I’m sure won’t ditch their acting careers once Harry Potter draws to an end. Emma Watson is currently the face of Burberry and I’m sure Daniel is sitting in a cosy mansion counting his millions as we speak. But where’s poor old Ron in all of this? I’m guessing he didn’t do too badly either.
