Forbes has released its annual list of Best Actors for the Buck, which means how much does an actor’s movies make based on how much he or she is paid. “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart tops the list, as for every dollar Stewart is paid, her films earn an average of $55.83. She is tops by a pretty wide margin.
Anne Hathaway comes in second at an average of $45.67 for every dollar she is paid, followed by “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson at $39.43. Why is R-Patz lower than K-Stew? Because Forbes looks at every release in the last three years and Pattinson has had more low-budget, low-earning releases than Stewart, which brings his average down.
The rest of the Top 10 is as follows:
4. Daniel Radcliffe, $34.24
5. Shia LaBeouf, $29.40
6. Robert Downey Jr., $18.74
7. Matt Damon, $15.83
8. Cate Blanchett, $15.17
9. Meryl Streep, $13.54
10. Johnny Depp, $12.48
The power of “Twilight,” huh? There is quite a drop off from Kristen and bottom half of the list.
