Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have been named the highest-earning on-screen couple of the past five years.
Bosses at Forbes magazine and Box Office Mojo have compiled the new list, based on onscreen chemistry and box office success, and "Harry Potter" co-stars Watson and Grint have beaten the competition after together helping to rake in $4.2 billion over the course of the study.
Coming in a distant second are Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart of "The Twilight Saga" films with takings of $2.5 billion and original "Transformers" co-stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox are third with earnings of $1.5 billion.
Rounding out the top five are Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow - thanks to the first two "Iron Man" films - and LaBeouf and his "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" love interest Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Also receiving mentions were Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz for "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," "Inception's" Leonardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard, and "Sex and the City's" Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth.
