£25-million man Robert Pattinson soars up rich list

Wednesday November 30, 2011

Robert Pattinson has leaped up the young rich list, knocking Harry Potter's Emma Watson out of the top three.

The 25-year-old Twilight star has risen two places to number three in Heat magazine's '30 Under 30 Rich List', with an estimated total earnings of nearly £25 million.

Daniel Radcliffe, 22, retained his place at number one with estimated earnings of £51 million from the Harry Potter franchise, follwed by 26-year-old Keira Knightley who remained in second place, after earning an estimated £30 million.

Daniel's Harry Potter co-stars Emma, 21, and Rupert Grint, 23, took fourth and fifth place, having apparently earned £24 million and £22 million respectively, both down one place from last year.

Former X Factor winner Leona Lewis, 26, hung on to sixth place with around £13 million, while Cheryl Cole jumped up seven places from 14th place last year, with estimated earnings of £11.5 million.

All the other Girls Aloud members, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts follow behind Cheryl, placed 24th to 27th.

Chart topper Adele, 23, is a new entry to the list after her hit albums are thought to have earned her almost £8 million.

Drive star Carey Mulligan, Kick Ass's Aaron Johnson and Irish twins Jedward are among those expected to make it onto the list next year.
