Pipping a whole host of acting greats – including Cameron Diaz and Sarah Jessica Parker to the post – the star came out top in the poll announced yesterday.

At just 19, lovely Emma is the youngest on the list – male or female – and is said to have banked a whopping £20 million in 2009.

Her earnings are reportedly made up of her fees for the last two Harry Potter films, as well as money earned from merchandising and her modelling contract with Burberry.

But the gorgeous star is currently hard at work studying at Brown, so we doubt she’s had any time to spend her hard-earned cash!

Miss Watson was closely followed in the top five by Cameron Diaz, SATC’s Sarah Jessica Parker, Katherine Heigl and Reese Witherspoon.

And the hot young star came 14th on the list overall, which was made up of Hollywood’s top 40 richest men and women.

Meanwhile, Emma’s co-star Daniel Radcliffe earned the title of highest paid actor, beating the likes of Brad Pitt, Jonny Depp and Robert Di Niro to bring home £25 million last year.
