Forbes: Highest Earning Actors 2010: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

Forbes has ranked the highest ranked actors in 2010 based on the amount of money that their films made. As you might expect Leo DeCaprio and Johnny Depp are on top of the list; however, after that, the list is heavily represented by actors who are under 30. Robert Pattinson comes in number 7 and Kristen Stewart comes in number 8.

According to Forbes:

Robert Pattinson: $749 million
The Twilight films have been perennial earners, so it’s no surprise to see Pattinson on this list. He ranks above his costar Kristin Stewart thanks to Remember Me, a weepy romance that earned a healthy $56 million on an estimated budget of $16 million. Pattinson’s next film is an adaptation of the bestselling book Water for Elephants.

Kristen Stewart: $698 million
Like her costar Pattinson, Stewart starred in a non-Twilight film this year. It didn’t perform very well though. The Runaways brought in only $4.7 million. The finalTwilight book, Breaking Dawn, has been divided into two films that are both sure to be big earners. The first hits theaters in November 2011.

  1. Wow, I don’t even know what to say to that. I am proud for them but it reveals how messed up our countries are paying athletes, singers, and actors crazy amounts of money for entertainment. What are we thinking? Sorry, our teachers struggle, it just doesn’t seem sane to me.

    • i know, it’s totally backward when you consider important things in life. but at least “Dede” clarified in his/her comment below that those amounts weren’t their paychecks. it does make sense though: school is a chore, being able to escape from life for a time? obviously the majority of the world loves that and we’re willing to pay for it.

    • I believe those amounts represent the total $ made by their films in 2010, not their paychecks.

    • The sad thing is that The Runaways was a far superior film to Remember Me. (IMHO)

  2. hi

  3. hi
    how are you


  5. K, this list doesn’t represent their pay, Forbes credited each actor with the box office earnings for every film they starred in.

    Totally right about teachers etc being underpaid thou 🙂

  6. This Forbes list isn’t what the actors got PAID this year, it is what their FILMS GROSSED. Rob probably made in the low tens of millions, which is still a ridiculous paycheck, but not anywhere near 3/4 of a billion dollars. $749 million is what Eclipse and Remember me earned.

    • Oh, I realized its not what they made, and I actually wasn’t even commenting on them (Robert & Kristen) but more over on all actors, entertainers etc. It was just seeing those figures in black & white gave me a shock for a moment. It seems crazy that they receive even lets say a small (????) 2 million! for a film, priorities seem to have gotten all balled up along the way.

    Yes but even as stars they given up a lot, they get paid but they have given up seeing their famalies as often, their privacy (always being photographed or asked for an autograph) and as its sad to say, their relationships, like, when your famous you never know who’s a real friend and who might be using for the fame. But I do agree about teachers (my moms one) they are underpaid.
