Emma Watson ‘Emotional’ Over Being A Millionaire

Actress Emma Watson is worth how much? An estimated $32 million, thanks to the wildly popular "Harry Potter" film franchise that made her a global superstar.

She has a hard time believing she has made so many millions at such a young age.

"By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get serious," Watson tells the December edition of British "Vogue," according to People.com. "I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional."

The 20-year-old actress -- who plays studious Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" movies -- tells "Vogue" she learned of her vast and growing fortune while having the "money conversation" with her dad, Chris Watson. She was 17 at the time, and made about $75 a week in allowance money -- so imagine her surprise at being a multi-millionaire.

Watson, now a sophomore at Brown University, reprises her Hermione role in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", Part 1 on November 19. Her co-star Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, is reportedly worth $45 million; as for Rupert Grint, who portrays goofy Ron Weasley, he found he had more money than he knows "what to do with."

Though she's made a name for herself by appearing in all eight "Harry Potter" movies, Emma's worth doesn't depend entirely on the wizarding world, and is likely only going to grow from here. She's voiced Princess Pea in the animated movie "The Tale of Despereaux" and is currently filming the drama "My Week with Marilyn" with Michelle Williams in London.

And, now that she's sporting a serious -- and seriously short -- new 'do, she's no doubt opening a new window of opportunity for the types of roles she can play. If anyone's planning to remake the 1960 French film classic, Breathless, we can think of someone who definitely looks the part of the leading pixie-haired lady, (originally portrayed by Jean Seberg).
