Even though Emma Watson is a record-breaking earner, she didn't realize how big her fortune was until just three years ago. As a 17-year-old, she was getting $75 a week in allowance, totally oblivious to how much she really had in the bank.

Although her wildly successful Harry Potter films have helped her estimated net worth rise to $32 million, Emma didn't have a clue about her earnings until she had a financial talk with her dad. Now, at age 20, the British beauty says she was shocked to learn about her fortune.
"By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get serious," Emma says in an interview with Vogue UK. "I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional."

This is yet another sign of the pixie-haired star's humble nature. In an interview with WWD, the actress said she would never design a clothing line to feed her own ego, and the thought of coming out with her own perfume makes her want to "vomit."

Do you think Emma's dad did the right thing by keeping her in the dark about her earnings? What about you? Does having an allowance keeps you more level-headed about money? %Poll-55230%
