Didn’t you know it was rude to ask someone how much they make? The sheer wealth of movie stars, in particular, is a source of interest to us all. Forbes 400, anyone? Luckily for us, we can find all we ever wanted to know about the state of someone’s assets in the privacy of our own homes, with the click of a button. Indeed, we want to know who made the most that year and we want to know who was the lucky celeb to take home the biggest paycheck for a role. We want to know who is rolling in bills and who is filing for bankruptcy.

We are nosey people. And while we ourselves might have an interest in just how much these movie stars are making, sometimes the stars of those films themselves don’t even know! Some are just cavalier about money in general while some were just child stars when the money in their bank accounts started to weigh more than they did. With that, here are 15 actors (and a few non-actors, too) who don’t even know how much they made.

14 Mischa Barton

Here we have a case that wasn’t so much about her not knowing how much she got for a role, but rather, how much was actually in her bank account. Mischa Barton, one of the rich kids in The O.C., was shocked to find that her mother - her own mother! - had stolen money from her without her knowing it. Sounds like an episode right out of The O.C.! Sadly, many child stars, from Macaulay Culkin to Shirley Temple, have found themselves in this exact situation. In Barton’s case, she claimed that her mother, who had been her manager for twenty years at that point, lied about how much she made in a film she did in 2013 and then took the rest of the money for herself. However, it took Barton quite a while to file the lawsuit.

Emma Watson, aka Hermione Granger, had no idea just how much money she had until she was around 17 years old. Not a clue. No inkling at all that she was a millionaire. In the end, she probably would have made an amount similar to Ron Weasley for her role, which was roughly $30 million. For someone who not only plays brainy characters but is actually a smart woman in real life, one would think that she would have had some inkling that she was a millionaire. It wasn’t until her dad had a “money talk” that she realized just how big her bank account was, saying, "By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get serious. Until then, she had been given an allowance of 75 dollars a week. On finding out that she was a millionaire, Watson said, "I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional." Oh, to discover you’re a millionaire…
