Really? This Girl Is the Highest Paid Actress in Hollywood?
Someone find Meryl Streep some fangs!
According to Forbes, the highest paid actress in Hollywood isn't Meryl, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Charlize Theron or any number of seasoned stars — it's Kristen Stewart.
KStew made $34.5 million in the past year. Let that sink in. As Forbes writes, "At the young age of 22 Stewart earned more than any other actress between May 2011 and May 2012. Most of that money came from Twilight where Stewart stars as Bella Swan. But she also earned big buck for starring in Snow White and the Huntsman. The press loves writing about Stewart. Her relationship with Twilight costar Robert Pattinson is a constant source of tabloid interest."
As Forbes notes, Kristen's Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, get paid the same, but Kristen earned more than them this year because of Snow White and the Huntsman. Her payday put her at #43 on Forbes' Celebrity 100 list, which measures a combination of money and fame.
Kristen is the youngest person on the highest paid actresses list — 16 years junior to the next youngest, another Kristen, SNL's Kristen Wiig.
Congrats on the success, KStew. Who knew lip biting was so profitable?
