Kristen Stewart: The highest-paid actress (for now)

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart just bumped Angelina Jolie off the top of the highest-paid actresses list. I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. Via The Huffington Post:

Turns out Twilight is still a (the?) big deal. Forbes reports Kristen Stewart is the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, pulling in a pretty $34.5 million from May to May. The 22-year-old can demand as much as $12.5 million or so per film. Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner make the same for each film in that series, but Stewart out-earned them by jumping in Snow White and the Huntsman. Who else brings in the big bucks? Cameron Diaz (17 years Stewart’s senior) came in second with $34 million skimmed off the earnings of Bad Teacher, What to Expect When You’re Expecting and The Green Hornet. The margins grow from there, with Sandra Bullock making $25 million over the same time period.

Look, I have no problem with a talented actress earning loads of money, but I’m way less okay with it when the actress earning those big bucks is constantly whining about how hard it is to be rich and famous and compares fame to rape, all while having the acting range of wood chips.
