Taylor Lautner & Robert Pattinson among Forbes list of Highest Paid Actors
Forbes has released its annual list of the highest paid actors. You may recall Kristen Stewart is the highest paid actress, and now it’s the boys’ turn! Our leading men both make the cut, so check it out below.
While Lautner and his Twilight costar Robert Pattinson earned the same amount of money last year, only Lautner made our Celebrity 100. That’s because thanks to the movie Abduction, he had more publicity. This fall’s Breaking Dawn — Part 2 will be the final Twilight movie. After that, Lautner will have to prove that he’s more than just Jacob.
Pattinson has been diligently pursuing work outside of Twilight but so far, he hasn’t had any successes. Remember Me, in 2010 failed to connect with an audience. Last year’s Water for Elephants turned a nice profit because it was made on such a low budget but it was hardly a blockbuster. With Twilight ending, Pattinson will have more chances to prove himself outside of the franchise.
