Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson Rank 1&3 On Forbes Top 10 Value Actors

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News), Uncategorized.

I'm #3, you're #1... it's my move.

Every year “Forbes” ranks actors according to the dollars they generate per dollar of remuneration they receive to determine which actors provide film investors with the best return, aka “Hollywood’s Best Actors for the Buck” list.

The financial windfall earned by Summit Entertainment from the “Twilight” franchise’s latest installment, now closing in on $600 million in worldwide box-office and still holding pole position at the domestic box-office, has been astounding. As reported by Dorothy Pomerantz at Forbes, the first three movies in the “Twilight” ¬†series have cost a total under $200 million and have generated close to $2.5 billion in revenue.

As a result, Kristen Stewart lands on top the Forbes list of actors who provide the best return for dollars spent, and only beats out Robert Pattinson because of his lower performing efforts “Remember Me” and “Water for Elephants” which may have increased his personal earnings but dilute his performance in earnings per dollar.

Forbes only considers actors who’ve been in three or more movies in the past five years, and the films had to open in more than 500 theaters. Animation efforts are also not included.

Here’s the list:

1. Kristen Stewart (“Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1″) – $55.83

2. Anne Hathaway (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Bride Wars”) – $45.67

3. Robert Pattinson (“Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1,” “Water for Elephants”) – $39.43

4. Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter” franchise) – $34.24

5. Shia LaBeouf (“Transformers” franchise, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”) – $29.40

6. Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man 2,” “Sherlock Holmes”) – $18.74

7. Matt Damon (“True Grit,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) ¬†- $15.83

8. Cate Blanchett (“Hannah,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) – $15.17

9. Meryl Streep (“It’s Complicated,” “Julie & Julia”) – $13.54

10. Johnny Depp (“Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise) – $12.48
