Kristen Stewart is a rather polarizing actress, and mentioning her name can incite a string of compliments (“She’s great in Adventureland!”) or critiques (“Does she ever smile?”). But new evidence suggests that, like her or not, Stewart is box office gold. Which is probably why she’s now the highest-paid actress in Hollywood. Read the numbers and see who else is on the list here!
Though she seems more “girl next door” than “filthy rich starlet,” Kristen falls into the latter category, having made $34.5 million dollars last year. That number is truly mind-boggling. If I made $34.5 million, I’d probably retreat to a mansion and waltz around in vintage couture all day, a la Edie Beale. But Kristen seems to be very low-key about her wealth (and even wears sneakers on the red carpet) which is probably why it surprised me.
Stewart beat out big names like Cameron Diaz (who comes in a close second at $34 million) and Sandra Bullock (in third place at $25 million). I’m just going to suppress any jealousy and say congrats to Kristen! [via E!]
