Kristen Stewart tops Forbes list of best actors for the buck

Wellington, Dec 7: Kristen Stewart has been named as the most profitable star in the latest Forbes list of Best Actors for the Buck.

The ‘Twilight’ actor topped the list because she brought in 55.83 dollars for the movie studios for every dollar they pay her, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The financial magazine calculated the amount after covering her projects over the past three years and a substantial amount of her income has been generated from the hugely successful vampire franchise films. She had also undertaken minor roles in smaller independent projects.

Anne Hathaway, meanwhile, came in at number two on the coveted list as it is revealed that her movies make US 45.67 dollars for every US1.00 dollar she takes home.

She has starred in the box office hit Alice in Wonderland, which was well received although she was not as successful with other movies like Bride Wars and Love and Other Drugs.

Kirsten’s boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattinson made third place on the list.

The 25-year-old British actor earned an average of US 39.43 dollar for every buck he was paid, including for his roles in Twilight, Water for Elephants and Remember Me.
