Harry Potter's Emma Watson and Rupert Grint: Box Office's Top Couple

by at . Comments

Forbes has looked back at the last five years and compiled a list of the onscreen couples who have added up to the most bank at the box office. Is it a surprise that number one, by a large margin, is Emma Watson and Rupert Grint? They have appeared in four Harry Potter films in the last five years, totaling $4.2 billion.

Way back in second place is that Twilight couple, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Their onscreen love affair has earned $2.5 billion in box office revenues. Although they may not catch Grint and Watson, with Breaking Dawn Part 2 still to come in theaters they may close the gap.

Although they are no longer an onscreen couple anymore as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has replaced her, Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf landed in third place. The Fox-LaBeouf romantic tandem scored $1.5 billion in their two Transformers movies.

Pepper Potts and Tony Stark, played by Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., landed in fourth place with just over $1.2 billion at the box office for the Iron Man films. The fifth spot, ironically, contains earnings all from one film. That honor goes to LaBeouf and Huntington-Whiteley as their Transformers Dark of the Moon brought in $1.1 billion. If they rejoin for a fourth Transformers (which LaBeouf said he will not do), they should easily climb into fourth place.
