Taylor Lautner & K-Stew Made More Money Than R-Patz in 2010! Richest Actors In Hollywood!

That’s not all either! Jennifer Aniston gets her revenge, out-earning both Brad Pitt AND Angelina Jolie!

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner may be the youngest A-list actors in Hollywood, but the three are out-earning almost all of their peers! Vanity Fair released their list of the 40 highest earners in Hollywood last year and the Twilight trio finished at numbers 9, 13 and 15. The funny thing is that Taylor out-earned his costars and Kristen made more than boyfriend Rob!

Also laughing her way to the bank was Jennifer Aniston who, at number 18, out-earned both Angelina Jolie and ex hubby Brad Pitt!

James Cameron tops the list with a cool $257 million while Johnny Depp comes in second with a very distant, but in no way shabby, $100 million.
