Soccer Beats Pageantry In U.k.

Subscribe To:

Just two weeks after 14.7 million viewers in the U.K. tuned in to the queen's Jubilee concert on the BBC, making it the most-watched television program of the year, rival ITV reported that 16.1 million watched its coverage of the Euro 2012 soccer match between England and Ukraine on Tuesday. That number represented a 57 share. Meanwhile, the French cable channel M6 drew its second-best ratings ever for its coverage of the France vs. Sweden match when 12.2 million viewers, representing a 44.5 share, tuned in.



At the age of 22, Kristen Stewart has already become the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, according to Forbes magazine. The business biweekly said that with $34.5 million in earnings (mostly from the Twilight movies, but also from Snow White and the Huntsman) , Stewart banked more money than any other female performer in Hollywood between May 2011 and May 2012, . No. 2 on the list -- and only slightly behind with $34 million -- was Cameron Diaz, who cashed in on a lucrative backend deal for Bad Teacher , which cost only $20 million to make but took in $216 million at the box office. On the other hand No. 3 on the list, Sandra Bullock, wound up with $25 million mostly presumably from an upfront fee for her most recent film, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close , which earned just $32 million at the box office. Angelina Jolie, who topped the Forbes list last year, came in at No. 4 with $20 million, even though she did not have a movie out during the May-to-May period. "Even when she's not starring in a big studio flick, Jolie still earns millions from residuals and endorsement deals," Forbes observed. Rounding out the top five, with $18 million, was Charlize Theron, who pocketed fees for Young Adult, Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus.
