Emma Watson "felt sick" and "emotional" when she realised she had amassed a multi-million dollar fortune from the Harry Potter movies - and immediately enrolled on an accountancy course.
The British actress had no idea what she was being paid to portray Hermione Granger in the wizard movie franchise until she was "17 or 18" when her father sat her down for the "money conversation".
And Watson, who had previously been living off a $75 (£50)-a-week allowance, admits she enrolled on a course at Coutts bank to learn how to manage her bulging finances.
She tells Britain's Vogue magazine, "By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get... serious. I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional."
