Emma Watson has been a staple of beauty, grace, and intelligence in the Hollywood acting circuit for years and frankly speaking, we can't get enough of her! Even if you aren't a huge Harry Potter fan, you've gotta admit — there's just something about her! That's why when we were thinking of the perfect lady to send y'all off into the long Thanksgiving break, we knew Ms. Watson was the best candidate. This might just be your last peaceful moment before having to deal with your family's incessant badgering about your job, love life, and beer gut. Enjoy it, guys (and seriously, hang in there, we feel your pain).
For those of you not too familiar with Watson's career, no worries! We've got you covered. As many of you do know, she played the beloved Hermione Granger in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, but her career hasn't stopped there. Emma has gone on to do a ton of terrific films including The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, The Circle and of course, the 2017 remake of Beauty and the Beast.
In fact, her role as Bella catapulted Watson's earnings to the moon! Before the film she already had a net worth of $70 million — after? Psh, she's rolling in the dough. She received an estimated $2.5 million upfront for her role and an additional $19 million thanks to a deal that includes a portion of the film's earnings. Needless to say, it's been a fantastic year for Emma and as a result, she's been looking better than ever!
