Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson ‘most bankable’ in Hollywood
London: A poll conducted by Forbes magazine declared that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are two of the most bankable actors in Hollywood.
Forbes.com posted a ranking of Hollywood movie stars on Tuesday, who earned the studios the most money compared with amounts they are paid.
The top actors, perhaps not surprisingly, starred in major Hollywood flicks that earned hundreds of millions at box offices.
Stewart, who plays Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight’ movies that tell how Swan falls in love with the vampire Edward Cullen, ranked No. 1 on the list of Hollywood’s Best Actors for the Buck after being paid just 1dollar for every 55.83 dollars she earned, on average, for movie producers.
Pattinson, who portrays Cullen, was No. 3, with earnings of 39.43 dollars for producers from every dollar he was paid.
The pair’s most recent film, ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’ has raked in 589 million dollars at global box offices since its release earlier this month.
Remove the pair from a blockbuster franchise like ‘Twilight,’ and the financial picture changes dramatically, which is why Pattinson’s average is lower than Stewart’s.
According to the magazine, Pattinson scored lower because he has been busier, working on dramas like ‘Water for Elephants’ and ‘Remember Me’ which did not do very well at the box offices.
Stewart, 21, had only one big flop, ‘The Runaways,’ between her most recent ‘Twilight’ flicks.
Ranked between the two ‘Twilight’ lovers was actress Anne Hathaway, who earned studios 45.67 dollars for every dollar she was paid for films including ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Bride Wars,’ the Telegraph reported.
‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe was No. 4, and ‘Transformers’ leading man Shia LaBeouf rounded out the top 5.
