Hollywood’s Highest Paid Couple: Emma Watson and Rupert Grint

Well, we knew it wasn’t Heidi and Spencer.

If there’s one thing Forbes loves to do, it’s let the world know exactly how much each celebrity makes and then rank them in a list. And god bless ‘em, they’ve done it again.

Emma Watson and Rupert Grint play Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly in the Harry Potter franchise.

Forbes has put together a list of Hollywood’s Top Earning On-Screen Couples, and those two top the list, raking in a whopping $4.2 billion between them at the global box office. Keep in mind, that’s four movies in the last five years, so they’ve had some time to bank.

Twilight and real-life lovers, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart came in second, picking up $2.5 billion. Their characters have become immensely popular in spite of the fact that most of Bella Swan’s dialogue is just random stuttering.

BELLA: But--I--no!--you can’t--what--how--I mean--no!


Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox came in third, earning $1.5 billion for the massive action-robogasm that is Transformers, barely beating out Shia LaBeouf and his new onscreen love-interest, Rosie Huntington Whitley. Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow came in fourth for their portrayals of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts in the Iron Man series.

Other stars who made the list include Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz (Pirates of the Caribbean), Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst (Spiderman), Leonardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard (Inception, and finally, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth (Sex in the City).
