Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart, Forbes Top Earners!

Robert Pattinson, $20 million

The Twilight star branched out recently with Water for Elephants, which costarred Reese Witherspoon. The film did OK but its box office was a drop in the bucket compared to the Twilight films. With two movies left, expect Pattinson to keep earning big for the next two years.

Kristen Stewart, $20 million

Stewart’s non-Twilight career hasn’t been as successful as her co-star Robert Pattinson’s so far. Her 2010 film The Runaways grossed only $4.6 million at the global box office. But the two-part Breaking Dawn should bring her enough money to play around with different roles while looking for her next big hit. Stewart is attached to one of two Snow White projects currently in development.

The Higest Paid Actresses list was released on July 5th so much has changed since then with Kristen’s newest movie Snow White and the Huntsmanset to begin filming on August 15th.  This makes it sound like she’s trying to keep up with Rob but I’d say they’re probably on equal footing these days.
