Kristen Stewart is Hollywood's top earning actress

Wednesday June 20, 2012

Kristen Stewart has become Hollywood's highest paid actress.

The 22-year-old - who is dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson - is said to have banked around $ 34.5 million in the past 12 months from the vampire saga films.

And adding to her earnings is her starring role in Snow White And The Huntsman (pictured), opposite Chris Hemsworth.

Kristen's estimated earnings dwarfed those of fellow Tinseltown stars who have been in the industry for longer, such as Angelina Jolie, who made around $20 million in the past year, Charlize Theron and Julia Roberts.

Cameron Diaz, who starred in comedy Bad Teacher and pregnancy comedy What To Expect When You're Expecting, came a close second with earnings of around $34 million in the survey.

Meanwhile Sandra Bullock, who starred in Stephen Daldry's post 9/11 drama Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close, took third place.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Meryl Streep, Kristen Wiig and Jennifer Aniston made up the rest of the top ten.

To determine the top earners, used estimates including pay from films, endorsements and advertising work.
