Emma Watson is most profitable actress of the decade
Initially only reported on tabloid sites and now making the rounds on more authoritative sites, we've learned that Potter actress Emma Watson is the decade's most profitable actress. From CNN:
Over the course of the decade, films that Watson was involved in made $5.4 billion worldwide and these boasted the highest average box office earnings, making roughly $900 million per film.
More notable actresses like Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet were beaten in the list conducted by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Ali Jaafar, International Editor at Variety Magazine said it was notable that Watson was a big grosser, but it would be interesting to see how her career progressed.
“She's untested apart from the Harry Potter franchise, but these are young actors and it'll be interesting to see how they develop their careers,” Jaafar told CNN.
