Emma Watson who plays Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films is more popular than Daniel Radcliffe who plays Harry Potter. You’d think it would be the other way around.
What do I mean by more popular? Well, for starters she has more Google hits than her sidekick and more Youtube hits as well. Those are the only sites that matter. This is not just in the USA either, UK searches are also unsurprisingly soaring. And to be honest, no one cares about Daniel Radcliffe. He had a spike in fame when he decided to go nude in that Equus play and do a three way with a horse and a blonde girl but other than that, he’s not as cool or as funny as someone like…Shia Lebouf or Charles Barkley.
Emma is also popular because of the jailbait factor. THAT MEANS SHE’S 17 AT THE MOMENT EVERYBODY. You can call her pretty and that’s about it. She kind of has the same appeal as Hayden Panetierre who plays Claire Bennet in HEROES except she doesn’t go around licking things. They were both on FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2007 List.
Hayden got 6th place and Emma got 98th place in FHM’s 100 List. That’s a really big gap but lets face it, everyone on that list is a winner. I don’t know…but wouldn’t you have to NOT be a teenager to be certified as a “Sexy Woman“? FHM apparently doesn’t think so. Then again, they are a UK mag so everything that doesn’t seem ok in the states is pretty chill there. Those crazy Brits, what will they do next?
The 17-year-old actress has made about $23.4 million mostly from the Harry Potter franchise.
Daniel Radcliffe is slightly ahead in the bank but that’s because he’s Harry Potter. He’s also signed a $58 million dollar deal to appear in the next two films. I don’t know about you but that’s a significant jump in salary. However, I wouldn’t know how it’s like to spend nearly my entire life shooting one Harry Potter movie after another.
By the time they finish off the series, they’ll be like 21. Well I guess they could pull it off if they still look really young but English people aren’t Asian people. You won’t mistaken a 21 year old for a teenager or a teenager for a baby… or a baby for a fetus. Yeah, they still look kind of young sometimes but as you can see in the pictures below, they’re not kids anymore.
Oh, and anyone who hangs out with Maria Menounos is cool in my book.
