London, June 30(ANI): Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has revealed that she did not know she had 10-million-pound fortune until she turned 18.
“My dad never told me how much money I was earning. Then, when I hit 18, he was like, ‘I want you to understand that your money isn’t some kind of abstract concept. I want you to have a feel for what it’s worth and what you can do with it’,” The Telegraph quoted her as telling Elle magazine.
She said: “The truth is I’d just like to pretend that it (the money) doesn’t exist. It’s amazing how many children are aware from such a young age about money being important or supposedly impressive.
“Around the age of 13 or 14, kids used to come up to me and say, ‘You the girl on Harry Potter? How much do you make?”‘
Watson is preparing to take a break from her acting career in order to pursue education.
She added: “It’s going to sound dramatic, but I feel like it’s going to be my life over as I know it. My whole life has been about Harry Potter and then all of that will shut down and I don’t know what it will be like.
” I go to university in September – I’ll be doing bits and bobs at Christmas, but September feels like my cut-off point, the moment when I’ll really stop.”
Emma’s new film Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince will be out next month. (ANI)
