Forbes Ranks Kristen Stewart Ranks #1 On List Of Highest-Paid Actresses

Today, Forbes announced that Kristen Stewart topped their list of highest-paid actresses.  While she may have started out with a meager paycheck for the first Twilight film, her fee has increased significantly thanks to the success of the film and her incredible rise to fame.

Stewart made $12.5 for each of the last two installments of the Twilight franchise, and though she did make the same as Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, she is worth more thanks to the succes of Snow White And The Huntsman.  Between May 2011 and May 2012, Stewart made $34.5 million, placing her at #43 on Forbes Celebrity 100 List.

“To determine who the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood are, we considered upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work,” Forbes explained on their site.  “We talked to manager, agents, lawyers and other in-the-know folks to come up with our estimates. We did not deduct for things like agent fees or the expenses related to being a celebrity.”

The gal of the hour, wearing a Balmain beaded bustier with matching skirt and Christian Louboutins, joined co-star (and new dad) Chris Hemsworth at the Australian premiere of Snow White & The Huntsman at Event Cinemas Bondi Junction last night (June 19th) in Sydney.
