Emma WatsonThe live-action "Beauty and the Beast" has so far grossed more than $490 worldwide* and part of that enormous chunk of cash will go to Emma Watson.

Watson was paid only $2 million to star as Belle, but thanks to a sweet back-end deal, the 26-year-old could rake in more than $15 million, according to THR.

That ranks her above Jennifer Lawrence, who's held the top position since 2015 when she was paid $15 million for the final "Hunger Games" movie, according to The Daily Beast.

Watson previously held the "highest paid actress" title in 2010, thanks to "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1," and was ranked 14th overall that year.

"She is the biggest star in the world right now," Liza Anderson, celebrity publicist and founder of Anderson Group Public Relations told the London Evening Standard. "She can star in anything. She could produce. She's America's sweetheart and a global sweetheart. There's no better position to be in right now. I'm sure she has Hollywood banging at her door. I think she has the world in the palm of her hand."

Watson famously turned down another singing role in "La La Land," which won a Best Actress Oscar for Emma Stone, to star in the Disney remake.

According to The Daily Mail, Watson's net worth is reportedly $70 million, mostly earned from the "Harry Potter" films. That's a lot of bling for the "Bling Ring" star.

*The Daily Beast reported that the film had grossed $790 million, but BoxOfficeMojo reports that the worldwide gross is $90 million as of March 23.
