Harry Potter star Emma Watson has been named as the most bankable female star of the noughties. Appearances in six Harry Potter films have net the actress $5.4 billion dollars. Additional voiceover work in The Tale of Despereaux means that she's got more earning power than her co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.
However, there's some debate as to who holds the male title. The Guiness Book of World Records names Samuel L Jackson as the most bankable male star - he was involved in the Star Wars trilogy, after all. However, Entertainment Weekly reckon Orlando Bloom is the winner, having appeared in both the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy and Lord of the Rings.
