Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner Continue to Make Bank
The new issue of Vanity Fair features the 40 most powerful players in Hollywood, and (not surprisingly) 'Twilight' stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner have all made the cut. The magazine used earnings, not including TV or endorsement deals, to rank the celebs, and all three stars cracked the top 15.
Taylor leads the pack (pun intended), coming in at No. 9 with $33.5 million in earnings last year, while Kristen holds the No. 13 spot with a 2010 salary of $28.5 million. Robert Pattinson ranked just two spots below his leading lady at No. 15 with estimated earnings of $27.5 million.
This doesn't come as a huge shock to us -- 'Eclipse' has made over $693.5 million worldwide to date, according Box Office Mojo. The film was released on June 30, 2010, and holds the record for highest single-day gross on a Wednesday with $68.5 million earned on opening day, says the site.
What does that mean? A sweet paycheck for Kristen, Rob and Taylor, however, earnings from their other side projects -- 'Water for Elephants,' 'Abduction' and 'On the Road' -- were factored in, too.
What's extra cool is that Kristen is the highest-paid woman on Vanity Fair's list, beating out the likes of Jennifer Aniston ($24.5 million), Angelina Jolie ($21.5 million) and Sandra Bullock ($22 million). You go, Kristen!
