Harry Potter actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) are among the actors included in the 2010 edition of the Guinness World Records Book.  The latest edition of the venerable reference guide includes records for the two actors in categories relating to the continued box office success of the Harry Potter films.  Mr. Radcliffe was named "Highest-Grossing Actor of the Decade," while Miss Watson now holds the record for "Highest Average Box-Office Gross for an Actress."  The press release notes of Radcliffe and Watson:

Harry Potter has cast a spell on millions of fans and created magic for its stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson who continue to ride the meteoric success of the film franchise straight to the bank picking up Guinness World Records along the way. Radcliffe is the "Highest-Grossing Actor of the Decade", raking in an average of $558 million per film. Watson, on the other hand, earned the record for "Highest Average Box-Office Gross for an Actress". She has been in six movies that have grossed an average of $753.7 million each.
The inclusion of Radcliffe and Watson follow such other notable additions on the 'Most Powerful' records, including actor Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean) as "Most Powerful Actor" and actress Angelina Jolie (A Mighty Heart) as "Most Powerful Actress."  Guinness World Records 2010 will be released on September 1th and retail for $28.95.

The record holds for the money the movies made, not Dan’s and Emma’s….
I think Guinness don’t do that, maybe E! entertainment … highest paid actor, highest paid actress..
