Meanwhile, her Instagram bio reads, "Emma’s official Instagram page is currently dormant and is not being updated," suggesting the British star is not currently active on social media.

Career & Net Worth
Watson was born in Paris and is mostly known for her performances in the Harry Potter film series, in which she starred from 2001 to 2011. The franchise reportedly earned Watson a whopping $60 million and went on to become one of the most popular movie series in history. Watson's net worth, as of 2021, is roughly $80 million. At the peak of Watson's Harry Potter career, she pocketed anywhere between $15–$20 million per year in acting salary alone. Acting alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, Watson won several awards and critical acclaim for her performances.
Watson's work in the world-famous series had approximately earned her more than $13 million by the summer of 2007. At that point, she reportedly acknowledged she was financially content and wouldn't have to work to make a living again.
In 2009, Forbes magazine ranked her sixth on a list of "Most Valuable Young Stars." She was recognized as Hollywood's highest-paid female star the following year, having raked in a total of $24.8 million in 2009. Emma reportedly earned $4 million for 2007 "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." Later, she made $30 million for 'Deathly Hallows' Parts 1 and 2, combined. After adjusting for inflation, Emma earned at least $70 million from Harry Potter base salaries alone, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
However, since the final Harry Potter film was released in 2011, Watson has starred in a number of motion picture hits, including 'My Week with Marilyn' (2011), 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' (2012), 'The Bling Ring' (2013), 'This Is the End' (2013), 'Noah' (2014), 'Colonia' (2015), 'Regression' (2015), 'Beauty and the Beast' (2017), 'The Circle' (2017), and 'Little Women' (2019).
According to the report, Emma earned around $15 million for her work in 'Beauty and the Beast' including performance bonuses, which were tacked on to her base salary of $3 million for the movie. Watson revealed in a 2017 interview with Vanity Fair that she had purchased a home with a paparazzi-proof entrance due to concerns about privacy. Her decision came after having faced numerous situations with stalkers over the years.
