Emma Watson is all grown up. The actress, best known for playing the iconic Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" franchise, turned 25 on Wednesday, and, based on estimates from Forbes, she's not doing too badly for herself. With a net worth of $60 million, the star has certainly made the most out of her magical start.
After auditioning eight times for the role that would ultimately make her an international star, Watson began her journey as Hermione at the age of 9 and made her film debut at 11. Her first film, the first of eight in the "Harry Potter" series, grossed more than $974 million worldwide and was nominated for three Academy Awards and seven British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards.
At 15 she became the youngest celebrity to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine. Four years later, Watson grossed about $30 million in 2009, collecting a reported $15 million for Parts 1 and 2 of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," putting her at the stop of Vanity Fair's list of Hollywood's 40 top earners.
But to say the 25-year-old has expanded her empire beyond Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy would be an understatement. In addition to being an accomplished actress, Watson is also a humanitarian, model and recent graduate of Brown University.
