Kristen Stewart Forbes Highest Paid Actress
Kristen Stewart leads Forbes list of the Highest Paid Actresses. Her work in the “Twilight’ saga and her mega hit ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ earned the actress $34.5 million.
The 22-year-old star beat out mature actresses Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock.
Cameron Diaz comes the second with $34 million due to her role in ‘Bad Teacher’.
Sandra Bullock came the third. The actress had one film release this year and focused more on raising her adopted son. But Bullock was able to stay high in the earnings stake “thanks to money she still brings home from ‘The Blind Side’ and the upcoming big-budget sci-fi flick, ‘Gravity’”. Bullock’s only movie was the Oscar-nominated ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’.
Last year’s winner, Angelina Jolie, comes the fourth this year with earnings of $20 million.
In getting these numbers, Forbes considered “upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work” between May 2011 and May 2012.
