Kristen and Rob are #2 and #4 in Forbes' List of 'Hollywood's Best Actors For The Buck'

Kristen Stewart
Returns $40.60 for every $1 paid.

Stewart performed an unusual feat this year: She topped our highest-paid actress list and almost ranked as the actress who offers the best return for her pay. Even though Stewart earned $25 million to appear in the last two Twilight films, she still offers a good return on investment.

Robert Pattinson
Returns $31.70 for every $1 paid.

Pattinson is the second Twilight star to appear on our list this year. He falls below co-star Kristen Stewart because his one non-Twilight movie that we counted (Water for Elephants) wasn't as big a hit as Stewart's Snow White and the Huntsman.

From Forbes:

Ranking second on our list is Kristen Stewart. For every dollar she gets paid Stewart returns an average $40.60. Stewart is in the unusual situation of ranking high on this list and topping our Highest-Earning Actress list. Usually, if an actor is earning more than anyone else in Hollywood, it’s hard for him or her to be considered a bankable investment. That high salary means the films have to do spectacularly to offer profitable returns to the studios.

Stewart was able to earn a ton over the last three years and offer a healthy return thanks to the Twilight franchise. Even though she was paid $25 million to star in the last two films, she was clearly worth the money. The Twilight films have grossed $3.3 billion at the global box office and the final film, Breaking Dawn Part 2, is still in theaters.

Her two co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, also make our list. Pattinson ranks 4th with a $31.70 return for every dollar he is paid. Lautner ranks 6th with a $29.50 return.

All three of the actors were paid the same for the final Twilight movies. The differences in their return numbers comes from their other projects. This year Stewart had Snow White and the Huntsman which turned a nice profit, grossing $400 million on an estimated budget of $170 million.

Pattinson’s other movies this year, Bel Ami and Cosmopolis, weren’t released in enough theaters to count for this list. The only other film we looking at for Pattinson was Water for Elephants which grossed $118 million at the global box office on a $38 million budget.
