Volgens Forbes is Emma #6 op de lijst van best betaalde actrices in 2017, met dank aan het succes van ‘Beauty And The Beast’. Op #1 staat ‘La La Land’ actrice Emma Stone.
Brit Emma Watson (No. 6) is this year’s sole newcomer after depositing her paycheck for Beauty and the Beast, which grossed $1.26 billion to become the top-grossing movie of the year so far. Though tech drama The Circle flopped, she managed to make $14 million in our time frame, thanks to the Mouse House.
“Every kid who grew up on Harry Potter felt instantly comfortable seeing Emma Watson on screen; even if she wasn’t Hermione Granger, she was Belle,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at industry tracker ComScore. “[Disney] could have plugged in any actor into that role but it wouldn’t have had that magic.”
