i'm even more surprised that meryl streep isn't at the top of that list ‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart heads Forbes list of highest-paid actresses 22-year-old commanded $34.5 million in one year span; Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock are second and thirdKristen Stewart, star of the 'Twilight' movies and 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' tops Forbes' list of best-paid actresses.
Perennial pouty puss Kristen Stewart finally has a reason to smile.
On Tuesday, Forbes released its list of highest-paid actresses and the “Twilight” and “Snow White and the Huntsman” starlet tops the Hollywood heap with her $34.5 million haul from May 2011 to May 2012.
In vampire terms, that doesn’t suck.
The magazine credits the astronomical sum to the fact that the 22-year-old actress is integral to the wildly popular — and lucrative — “Twilight” franchise.
“The star becomes indispensable,” notes Forbes, “and the studio has to pay up.”
Nipping at Stewart’s heels in the No. 2 spot is Cameron Diaz at $34 million over the same span.'What to Expect When You're Expecting' star Cameron Diaz can expect $34 million per movie.
The curvy 39-year-old comic actress and surfer chick was seen recently in the stillborn diaper-centric dud “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” But she had a $216 million global hit with "Bad Teacher."
In a distant No. 3 spot is America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock, who pulled in a tidy $25 million, while Jennifer Aniston squeaked into the elite roster with her $11 million earnings.'Blinde Side' star Sandra Bullock flashes her $25 million smile.
Despite the staggering sums, Forbes noted that women are still paid significantly less than men in the movie biz.
“The 10 women who make up our list earned a total $200 million compared to the $361 million brought in by our top 10 men.”
