Harry Potter nerd P.O.A., Emma Watson, turned 18 on Tuesday, and unlike your 18th birthday, she just got access to the money she made as a child actor. How much, do you ask? Hold on to your fucking hat. New York Daily News says:
For most teens, turning the big 18 and becoming a legal adult comes with a few small perks including voting rights. For Emma Watson, Hermione in the Harry Potter films, turning 18 grants her access to the $20 million she’s amassed making the wildly popular film series….Watson has sat through a series of lessons in money management given by Coutts bank…She’s reportedly learned about basic economics, investing, and philanthropy.”
Hmm, a famous 18 year old actress with access to $20 million? I don’t know how much stock you guys generally buy, but cocaine and Prada seem like they would be worth a look right now.
