Emma Watson says she was shocked when told her worth of $32 million. Emma Watson had amassed her $32 million fortune by playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies.
Apparently the 20-year-old actress was given an allowance of $75 a week throughout her years portraying the strong-willed witch. Seriously, to go from $300 a month to $32 million would be a shocker to anyone!
Emma Watson said she was about 18 when she had a â€œmoney conversationâ€ with her father, Chris Watson. It was during that conversation that Chris told Emma she was worth millions! One can only assume she thought: â€œReally! Really? Really, Iâ€™m worth millions and Iâ€™ve been living on $75 a week!â€
However, speaking about finding out about her immense wealth, Emma Watson said, â€œBy the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get â€¦ serious. I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional. It was a real shock.â€
Emma Watson is estimated to be worth around $32 million! Even though she has a sizeable fortune and could easily retire and swim in warm ocean waters forever, Emma is not one to lie on her laurels. Watson is currently attending Brown University while still pursuing her acting career.
Emma Watson seems to have a level head on her shoulders and it doesnâ€™t seem she is blinded by her $32 million. It will be amazing to watch her grow as an actress as she pursues different roles now that the Harry Potter films are done. Emma Watson really worked hard for her mega bucks and her parents did an amazing job of keeping it safe for her. Too often child star parents end up wasting away their childrenâ€™s money before the child even grows up. Gary Coleman is just one example.
