Emma Watson beats Kristen Stewart on Forbes’ “Couples” list


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: On-screen couples appeared to be a thing of the past. Where Hollywood used to flock to see every Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn collaboration, those pairings are few and far between in the modern age of single-serving celebrities.

Which makes this list from Forbes Magazine all the more interesting. The editors decided to rank the “Top Grossing On-Screen Couples,” using as a criteria that the actors “had appeared on screen together more than once in the last 10 years.”

So who topped the list? Sorry, “Twi-hards,” but it was “Harry Potter” starlets Rupert Grint and Emma Watson who were named No. 1 on the chart. As Forbes pointed out, the duo’s contributions to the “Potter” franchise have helped the series earn “a whopping $6.3 billion so far,” and is on track to pass $7 billion when part two of “The Deathly Hallows” arrives this summer.

Next on the list were Viggo Mortensen and Liv Tyler for their work in Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films. Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley landed in the No. 3 slot for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. They might have moved even higher had they stuck around for the fourth “Pirates,” due in theaters this summer.

So where are Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, power-couple extraordinaire of the beloved “Twilight” series? They’d be at No. 5, right behind “Titanic” twosome Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

    I think ‘twihards’ are protective of Robert and Kristen’s relationship–to vote for them would only bring more attention. I know I think of this in a poll such as this one. They want to keep their privacy.
