Kristen Stewart - Kristen Stewart Named World's Most Bankable Star
Forbes magazine's 'Most Bankable' list is out, with 'Twilight Saga' stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson unsurprisingly leading the way. The list works by calculating how much the star's film will gross per $1 that they're paid for their appearance.
Stewart led the way, with films starring the actress earning $55.63 for every $1 she was paid. Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, was in third place with his films earning $39.43 for every $1; having starred in other films such as 'Water For Elephants' and 'Remember Me' he's slightly down on Stewart, the latter's average gross heavily dominated by the success of the 'Twilight' series. Breaking up the on and off-screen couple is Anne Hathaway who generates $45.67, thanks largely to the success of Tim Burton's 'Alice In Wonderland'. Others to feature in the top 10 included Daniel Radcliffe, Shia LeBeouf, Robert Downey Jr and Matt Damon, Downey Jr being the only actor over 30 in the list, placed sixth.
Alongside the most bankable stars, Forbes have also published those at the bottom of the pile, reports the UK's Guardian, with Drew Barrymore taking the unwanted crown of least bankable star. Her films only made 40 cents back for every $1 spent on the star, Eddie Murphy was runner up, though at least he was profitable, making $2.70 for every buck.
