Vanity Fair has released their annual list of top Hollywood earners for the fiscal year, and unsurprisingly James Cameron, Johnny Depp and Steven Spielberg are holding down the top three spots.
The trio we’re interested in, however, includes Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. All three members of the famed on-screen love triangle were catapulted to the top 15 of the 2010 list.
Lautner earned an estimated $33.5 million last year, after not even ranking on the list in 2009. This year, he is sitting pretty (and we mean that in the most literal sense) at No. 9.
The 18-year-old heartthrob earned a combined $25 mil for the two part “Breaking Dawn” films, $1 mil from older film revenue (mostly “Twilight” related) and a cool $7.5 mil for his upcoming thriller “Abduction.”
Stewart comes in at No. 13, with Pattinson trailing at No. 15.
All three stars garnered the same paycheck from their “Twilight Saga” roles, with Stewart raking in an additional $2.5 mil for “On the Road” and Pattinson pulling $1.5 mil with “Water for Elephants.”
Stewart and Pattinson previously ranked 37 and 35 on the list, respectively.
Let’s hope Lautner is able to keep his momentum going once the “Twilight” franchise comes to a close — We can’t get enough of that boy. It’s a personal problem.
