The numbers are in and Forbes never lies. The highest ranking actress From May 2011 to May 2012 is….
Kristen Stewart! The “Twilight” star is sitting on top of Forbes’ list with $34.5 million, beating competitors like Cameron Diaz, who came at 2nd place, Sandra Bullock – 3rd, Angelina Jolie – 4th, and her “Snow White and the Huntsman” co-star Charlize Theron – 5th.
K-Stew is so indispensable to the Twilight franchise, she’s able to demand $12.5 million dollars plus a share of the profits for the last two installments in the series! Summit knows the fans will throw a fit if Bella is played by someone else, and thanks to the profits from Twilight, they can definitely afford her!
The 22-year-old actress earned about $15 million dollars from “Snow White and the Huntsman”, and also got a nice cut from her appearance in “On the Road”.
Whether Kristen will be on the top of the list again next year depends on how well Breaking Dawn Part 2 does. But for now… she can sit on top of the cash and wonder: who’s Sigourney Weaver?
