Forbes: Kristen Stewart Offers Biggest Bang for the Buck
Kristen Stewart Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson might be the two of the hottest names in Hollywood, but they're not commanding Angelina Jolie-like or Leonardo DiCaprio-like salaries. Still, combine their pay with the success of their Twilight films, and you've got two star who offer the biggest bang for their buck. Forbes added up each star's earnings for his or her three most recent films, added the operating income on each films, and divided the total operating income by what the actors made. This produced a "return on investment" number - how much the studio earns for every dollar it pays a star. Who are Hollywood's highest paid actresses? Here's an example: for every $1 she's paid, 22-year-old Kristen Stewart nets the studio and production company behind Twlight $55.83 - which makes her No. 1 on this list. Next is Anne Hathaway, who fetches $45.67 for every $1 she takes home. Third: Pattinson, whose films bring in about $39.43 for every dollar he's paid. Check out the rest of the list here.
