Considering how much more money the “Twilight Saga” films earned in the box office than they cost to make, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that the three main stars of Summit Entertainment’s hit series are among the most bankable actors in Hollywood. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all in Forbes’ annual list of Hollywood’s Best Actors For The Buck, and for good reason.
This year the list was topped by Natalie Portman, who made $42.70 for every dollar she earned thanks to the money raked in by “Black Swan.” Trailing behind her was Stewart, who made $40.60 for every dollar she earned. Rounding out the top three was Shia LaBeouf with his $35.80 for every dollar in his paycheck.
Coming in fourth is Pattinson, fifth is Daniel Radcliffe and sixth is Lautner, so those three should all write “thank you” letters to the authors who gave them their careers. Rounding out the top 10 are Bradley Cooper, Dwayne Johnson, Amy Adams and Kevin James. Compare those 10 to Eddie Murphy, who was named as the Most Overpaid Actor in Hollywood because he only makes $2.30 for every dollar he is paid.
