R-Patz and K-Stew both have equally big parts in the Twilight Saga, so why did he make $5 million more than she did last year?
Do you think Robert Pattinson is worth more than his real-life (and on-screen) GF, Kristen Stewart? Well, here’s the hard truth: R-Patz made $5 million more than K-Stew in 2009, reports Forbes magazine, whose annual celebrity 100 list ranks Rob, 24, at #50 with an estimated total of $17 million last year; Kristen, 20, made $12 million at #66.
Should we be outraged? Is this a typical case of guys making more than girls? Sadly, gauging from their non-Twilight-related box office sales, Rob is way more marketable than his lady love!
Although he’s only been in two other films since Twilight blew up in 2008, R-Patz’s 2010 drama, Remember Me, made $46 million world-wide — nearly three times as much as Kristen’s recent film, Adventureland, which brought in a meager $16.6 million.
The numbers for Kristen’s indie flick, Welcome to the Rileys, haven’t been released yet, but they are bound to be as minimal as her other low-budget film, The Runaways, which has only raked in $3.5 million since it’s March 19 release. However, Rob’s not always such a draw himself: in 2008, his film Little Ashes grossed less than $500,00 world-wide. Talk about a flop!
However, we suspect we might know why Rob makes just a teensy bit more than his girl. Although he shot said films before his rise to fame as sexy vampire Edward Cullen, he DID appear in two of the Harry Potter flicks, HP and the Order of the Phoenix and HP and the Goblet of Fire; the films respectively grossed $896,013,036 and $938,468,864 worldwide.
All numbers aside, do YOU think Rob deserves to make more money than Kristen?
