This Is How Much Emma Watson Was Paid For ‘Beauty And The Beast’

Emma Watson spent a lot of time in rehearsal and on set for Beauty and the Beast and even had to turn down a role in La La Land due to her grueling schedule.

Emma is about to be raking in a lot of money though, thanks to the for sure box office success of the Disney live-action remake.

Emma received $3million as an upfront payment for the film, but she will be making a lot more based on how much money the film makes in theaters. If the film makes an amount similar to Angelina Jolie‘s Maleficent, which brought in $759 million worldwide, Emma‘s pay for the film could go up to $15 million.

Sources told the outlet how Disney doesn’t have to pay massive upfront salaries, like the big $20 million paydays that some stars get, as the studio “has the luxury to not have to put a star in there.”

“The IP is the star of the movie,” a source said. “If you hired Jennifer Lawrence as Belle, would it really make a difference in the opening [of Beauty and the Beast]? Unlikely.”
