Emma Watson's Pay for 'Beauty & The Beast' Revealed

Emma Watson's Pay for 'Beauty & The Beast' Revealed

Emma Watson‘s new movie Beauty and the Beast is now playing in theaters everywhere and some details on how much she was paid to play Belle have been revealed!

The 26-year-old actress spent many months in rehearsal and on set for the Disney live-action remake and even had to turn down a role in La La Land due to her grueling schedule.

Emma is about to be raking in a lot of money though, thanks to the for sure box office success of Beauty and the Beast.

The upfront pay that Emma received for the film is $3 million, but she will be making a lot more based on how much money the film makes in theaters, according to THR.

If the film makes an amount similar to Angelina Jolie‘s Maleficent, which brought in $759 million worldwide, Emma‘s pay for the film could go up to $15 million.

Sources told the outlet how Disney doesn’t have to pay massive upfront salaries, like the big $20 million paydays that some stars get, as the studio “has the luxury to not have to put a star in there.”

“The IP is the star of the movie,” a source said. “If you hired Jennifer Lawrence as Belle, would it really make a difference in the opening [of Beauty and the Beast]? Unlikely.”

    I love Emma. She’s gorgeous, but this movie was not for her, not if she had to sing. I can’t imagine how or why she would be cast in a musical of this magnitude when she really *can’t* sing. I don’t think I would have been upset if they’d found a singing double for her, really. People get body doubles all the time, a voice double, due to obvious reasons wouldn’t have been such a stretch. That they chose to make the live action film with such a handicap is ridiculous and kind of insulting. These are songs that I still have in my playlist from ages ago and was looking forward to listening to again with new voices. That entire part of the soundtrack is unbearable. LOL! I can’t go watch the film now cause I can’t mute or fast forward through those parts, which makes me kind of sad I put so much weight on the music side, but oh well. I hope the movie’s successful and that it brings everyone associated with it lots of good fortune, but I will skip this one and hope they do better with the next live action adaptation.

    Emma does have an uncanny resemblance to Belle which I suppose is the only reason they hired her. Which is unfortunate because not only can she not sing but she’s a horrible actress as well.

  • Will

    I think they’re hoping to capitalise off her Harry potter fame, she is so ordinary looking, can’t sing or act. And thinks taking her breasts out to promote a kids movie is normal.

  • tia maria

    There is nothing wrong with her singing on the movie soundtrack.She does a good job with the songs she sings.

    It’s one song…

  • totalobvi

    I think people are over reacting to her singing ability. I agree it would have been a bit better with someone with more vocal talent, but she barely sings at all and she’s not that awful! Amazing, absolutely not. But painful to listen to is a bit of an over exaggeration.

    I like her as belle and i don’t know why everybody is hating her singing i think she sings better than emma stone in la la land

  • SaraJ

    Have you never seen an animated Disney character? Cleavage anyone? Geez. Emma is lovely and not strange or overly model-looking, that’s why they chose her. Also she’s British. Don’t be a jerk.

  • SaraJ

    And yet they gave Emma Stone an Oscar for singing horribly.

    I saw it and it was by far underwhelming…and boring. I am not joking, I got bored. You’d think that was impossible but it happened about 30 min in and dragged and dragged. The singing was underwhelming, to say the least, if not outright amateurish; it just didn’t have the same joy, energy nor engagement as the original.

    I completely forgot that actual opera singers were used in the original including Belle, who had a two people play her, one for the drama and the other for the singing. I cannot express enough how that one detail devastated the movie; I left very very heartbroken because there was one song I waited for that didn’t even cut it.

    Flat is the best way to describe the singing.

    Its not a kids movie either, there is nothing about it that any child can relate to. Every-single-character was changed in design and purpose. The Beast himself was anything but dark nor tormented, lonely nor emotional. There was just no soul in any of it.

    Just imagine, there was more soul in animation than real life people. Astonishing.

    I have no idea why they made this movie at all.

    Some movies just should never be done, or redone, or re-imagined. Beauty and The Beast is one of them. Now I am dreading The Lion King live action. Dreading it. I cannot bear this level of heartbreak again. Its too much.

    I can handle a lot but this was too much.

    her singing is fine, its her public speaking that has me laughing at her.

    An Oscar is an award for ACTING not singing. She was given that for her incredible performance as an actress.

  • Gigi La Moore

    I saw the movie. Emma was a very weak link.

  • Gigi La Moore

    Very stiff and stilted as Belle. In scenes where emotion was needed, she was very flat.

  • Gigi La Moore

    She is indeed awful. All that auto tune makes it bearable.

  • Gigi La Moore

    She sings 3 songs-Belle, Something There and some new son. Even with auto tune, very flat and very bland. Acting sucked too.
