According to The Mirror, Tom reportedly made $14million across the eight films, the equivalent of being pai $451,613 per minute of screen time. 

In a previous interview with the News, Tom admitted to being financially irresponsible for a while after the films were made.

He said: ‘I bought a lot of rubbish things that kids buy: skateboards and clothes and typical teenage stuff. 

‘And, as soon as I could, I wasted a lot of money on cars – BMWs mostly – for myself and my family.

‘My mum told me: “You have worked hard for it so get what you want, but beware, you will lose money on cars”. And she was right.’

At one point, the actor said he got in trouble with the taxman and had ‘the bailiff at the door’ but got his finances under control with the help of an accountant.

The Harry Potter films were released between 2001 and 2011 and is the fourth highest-grossing film series of all time, having made $7.7billion.
