"Harry Potter" star Emma Watson was shocked that playing the brainy Hermione was so lucrative. Although she got a $75/week allowance, at 17 her dad sat her down for a talk. Nope, not the birds and the bees. She's apparently worth $32 million. [ People]

Brad Pitt had such a good experience on "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," he's reuniting with the director Andrew Dominik for a comedy this time around. In "Cogan's Trade," he'll play an enforcer that will stick his nose into a heist that takes place during a mob-protected high stakes poker game. [ The Hollywood Reporter]

Meryl Streep
in a wife beater battling aliens? It could have happened. On the "Alien" anthology Blu-Ray release, producer Gordon Carroll reveals that Streep and Sigourney Weaver were both considered for the part of Ripley, but since Streep's longtime companion at the time had died, they decided to delay her audition. You snooze, you lose, Streepy. [ Blastr]
