Celebs who don’t even know how much money they make – 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 12 actors (and a few non-actors, too) who don’t even know how much they made.
12. Rupert Grint – The Harry Potter Series
Rupert Grint, also known as Ron Weasley from Harry Potter (as if he really needs an introduction), was only a tiny tot of 11 years old when he landed the role of Ron Weasley. At the time, he had exactly zero professional acting experience, as you might expect from an 11-year-old, although he had done a school play.
Obviously, the iconic role turned out quite well for Grint, becoming a millionaire before reaching puberty. But, just like the laid-back Ron Weasley, Grint seems to take a similar approach to life: he doesn’t even know how much he made for the role! When asked about it, he said that it was a “ridiculous” amount and that “I must admit I don’t actually know how much I earned – the exact number.”
Well, Rupert Grint, that figure is something like $30 million, and perhaps even more. Do you want another ice cream van? You could get yourself a few! Interestingly, he also said that “I’ve never really wanted to [know].”
