We're not surprised with the actress that holds the title!
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Emma Watson is the highest-grossing actress of the 2000s with her six Harry Potter films bringing in about $5.4 billion worldwide!
The Guinness Book names Samuel L. Jackson as the world's Highest Grossing Actor, but Entertainment Weekly disagrees and has put Alan Rickman, who not only starred in HP, but also Love Actually and Sweeney Todd, in the top spot followed by Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, also for their work in Harry Potter.
Dame Maggie Smith is also included in the list above Emma Watson due to her involvement in both Gosford Park and The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
Both Johnny Depp and Sir Ian McKellan came close to the title as well for their big films this decade including The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd for Depp and The Lord of the Rings and X-Men trilogies for McKellan.
But Harry Potter has taken the cake this decade!
Those kids seriously never have to work again!
