It’s no secret that there’s a big cash pay-out when it comes to Twilight. Everyone from Hot Topic, to Borders, to Wal-mart is cashing in.
According to marketing shift:
“Since the premier episode of Trueblood and the premier of Twilight, vampires have replaced pirates as the “in” movie or TV characters.”
Now according to Wales Online, Michael Sheen is getting a 5 million pound payout. That’s roughly around 9 million American dollars.
We are wondering how true that is as actors’ contracts are usually very hush-hush, Rob is currently driving what could politely be termed a “fixer-upper” car, and he reportedly scoffed to the BBC about the reported figure that he is receiving for New Moon stating:
“I read some gossip thing saying, because I looked really uncomfortable in a paparazzi photo or something, they’re like, ‘He should get used to it. That’s the price to pay if you’re getting $12m (£8.1m) a movie’. If I’m getting paid $12m a movie I’d walk around naked. That’s all nonsense. I don’t know who makes that stuff up. Even the price for the first one was nonsense.”
