What do Emma Watson and Samuel L. Jackson have in common? They were both named the highest-grossing actors of the decade! With Jackson, we’re not surprised, but for 19-year old Watson, that’s quite a feat!
The Guinness Book of World Records announced today that Watson tops the list of ladies for grossing $5.4 billion in global box office receipts in the past ten years.
In fact, Watson's overall work actually earned even more in ticket sales than her male Harry Potter co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.
Guinness names Samuel L. Jackson as the highest-grossing actor with a total gross of $7.42 billion, but Entertainment Weekly claims the real winner is Orlando Bloom, who garnered $6.5 billion in ticket sales in mega-franchises the Pirates of the Caribbean and The Lord of the Rings. We’ll leave it to the experts to battle it out!
Emma is already so popular, and will likely continue to grow as an actress. She will next appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2 in 2010 and 2011.
