Harry Potter has been doing well for all-grown up Emma Watson.

Emma, a 19-year-old college student in Rhode Island, was doled out $30 million in 2009, more than any other actress in Hollywood.

She was also the youngest person on the list, which included Cameron Diaz and Sarah Jessica Parker, according to Vanity Fair’s list of top-paid celebrities.

She got $15 million paychecks for both Parts 1 and 2 of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.’
