Two of the most unlikely actors in Hollywood were named the most profitable actors of the decade. Emma Watson who you all know as Hermione in the Harry Potter films was named most profitable actress, and Orlando Bloom who you know from The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean was named most profitable actor.
I was really surprised at first when I read about this. You would think Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, or a ton of other big name actors would have more likely made this list. So how did these two actors accomplish this incredible feat? Well, they starred in some of the highest grossing movies of the decade!
The movies Emma Watson starred in like Harry Potter made over 5.4 billion dollars, and these boasted the highest average box office earnings, making roughly $900 million per film.
As for Orlando Bloom, he starred in two incredibly huge franchises, The Lord of the Rings and The Pirates of the Caribbean. Along with the several other films he appeared in over the last 10 years combined they took in more than $7 billion dollars.
They had a freakin great decade of making tons of money!
Are you surprised by who the two most profitable actors are?
