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

Posted Wed, February 2, 2011 3:49pm EDT

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.

Take a look at some of the top earning actors below!

  • 2. Johnny Depp — $100 million ($40 million Alice in Wonderland, $35 million Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, $20 million The Tourist, $5 million old film revenue)
  • 5. Leonardo DiCaprio — $62 million ($59 million Inception, $3 million old film revenue)
  • 7. Adam Sandler — $50 million ($25 million Just Go with It, $20 million Jack and Jill, $3 million Grown Ups, $2 million old film revenue)
  • 9. Taylor Lautner — $33.5 million ($12.5 million The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, $12.5 million The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, $7.5 million Abduction, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 10. Robert Downey Jr. — $31.5 million ($15 million Sherlock Holmes sequel, $12 Iron Man 2, $3.5 million Sherlock Holmes back-end, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 11. Will Smith — $29 million ($20 million Men in Black III, $5.5 million The Karate Kid back-end, $3.5 million old film revenue)
  • 13. Kristen Stewart — $28.5 million ($12.5 million The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, $12.5 million The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, $2.5 million On the Road, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 15. Robert Pattinson — $27.5 million ($12.5 million The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, $12.5 million The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, $1.5 million Water for Elephants, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 18. Jennifer Aniston — $24.5 million ($10 million Just Go with It, $8 million Wanderlust, $6 million Horrible Bosses, $500,000 old film revenue)
  • 20. Nicolas Cage — $23.5 million ($7.5 million Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, $7 million Trespass, $6 million Drive Angry, $1 million The Croods, $2 million old film revenue)
  • 21. Angelina Jolie — $23.5 million ($19 million The Tourist, $2.5 million untitled Bosnian-war drama, $1 million Kung Fu Panda 2, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 22. Sandra Bullock — $22 million ($20 million The Blind Side back-end, $2 million old film revenue)
  • 26. Owen Wilson — $19.5 million ($8 million Hall Pass, $8 million The Big Year, $2.5 million Cars 2, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 27. Vince Vaughn — $18. 5 million ($17.5 million The Dilemma, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 28. Daniel Craig — $18 million ($6 million Cowboys & Aliens, $6 million The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, $5 million Dream House, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 29. Vin Diesel — $18 million ($15 million Fast Five, $3 million old film revenue)
  • 30. Ben Stiller — $18 million ($15 million Tower Heist, $1 million The Big Year, $2 million old film revenue)
  • 31. Steve Carell — $17.5 million ($15 million Crazy, Stupid, Love, $2.5 million old film revenue)
  • 33. Katherine Heigl – $16 million ($15 million One for the Money, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 34. Shia LaBeouf — $16 million ($15 million Transformers: Dark of the Moon, $1 million old film revenue)
  • 35. Tom Cruise — $14.5 million ($12.5 million Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, $2 million old film revenue)
  • 36. Reese Witherspoon — $14.5 million ($12 million This Means War, $2 million Water for Elephants, $500,000 old film revenue)
  • 37. Hugh Jackman — $14 million ($9 million Real Steel, $2 million Butter, $1.5 million Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, $1.5 million old film revenue)
  • 40. Eddie Murphy — $13 million ($7.5 million Tower Heist, $4 million Shrek Forever After, $1.5 million old film revenue)

This means Taylor managed to out-earn major stars including Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Will Smith — and he’s just 18-years-old! Also Kristen Stewart, at just 20, made more money than any other female actor in 2010. That is pretty impressive — and she certainly deserves it for all the hard work she does!

Who is your favorite top earner?

Listen…be reasonable…these kids from Twilight didn’t expect or ask for all the attention they are getting. I am a mom and a grandmother and I would hate it if my child was being attacked in the press the way these kids are. Apparently we all love them…we can’t get enough. They are very talented and with age will only get better. Don’t like them…don’t go to their movies. Love the books! Love the cast of the movies!

I am happy for all these actors! Good on you. And I think all of these people hating on Jennifer, what’s wrong with you! Do you know her personally? No! So leave her be, she did nothing wrong! She’s just doing the best she can! Keep up the good work Jen and have a wonderful year. All you haters should be ashamed of yourselves.

The Millennial Generation or Generation Y is conquering Hollywood! 95-98% of Generation Y are no longer kids/teenagers, they are in their 20’s and 30’s.

Taylor Lautner will become the Gen Y Tom Cruise, Lady Gaga will become the Gen Y Madonna, Mark Zuckerberg the Gen Y Bill Gates, and the singer turned actor Justin Timberlake would become the Brad Pitt of the Millennium!

I guess the people who work at Hollywoodlife can’t add. People like Jennifer Anniston and Taylor Lautner have to make 3 movies compared to 1 for people like Angelina Jolie and Will Smith. And even with just one movie they aren’t that far behind people making 3 movies. Also how lame can people be. If my husband publically dumped me for another woman, I wouldn’t call it revenge if I made more money than him. Especially if he’s in a happy relationship and has a successful career himself. It’s funny that the Jenfans are claiming jealousy. Nobody wants to do 3X the work to make slightly more than somebody else.

SALT was omitted because it SUCKED!

Only a friggin MORON would find that movie entertaining.

Angelina has no talent. She’s got other…ahem…”assets”…and a wealthy and pedigreed Hollywood family (otherwise she’s be toast in this biz if talent were the measuring stick).

No cliche was left untouched in SALT.

Are you kidding? His people “leak” his asking price constantly. Others have more class, and probably even make more than he does, but they don’t talk about it.

It doesn´t matter if the cute Taylor made more money than Kirsten and Rob. what it matters is that he has born with a star and just wish him good luck in the work he is doing now!
Alles gute, all the best, todo lo mejor for you Taylor ♥

The only reason Taylor made more money than Kristen and Rob is because he is choosing money over films with actual substance.

haha…Adam Sandler made 25 million for Just go with it, while jen only gets 10 million.

Shows exactly who the studio thinks is the bigger, better, more box office power star.
Jen can’t open a movie on her own, her hits all have a proven box office male like Vince, jim carrey, ben stiller or a puppy.

While love happens, switch, management, rumour has it , derailed etc. FAILED b/c jen has no spark or charm.

You left out Salt. Angelina made 20 million at least for that. Plus it made ~300 million.

Also chinnifer had to make a lot of movies to make that much since studios won’t pay her more than 10 million. She is not a movie star, she belongs on TV.

She has never opened a movie on her name alone, while Salt was a success b/c of Angelina and Angelina only.

And jen can laugh all she wants, her echo in her empty lonely house will keep her company.

Only reason Aniston made more is b/c she makes so many movies! And her movies are all bad and the same rom-com.

Angelina got made 19 million for ONE movie while aniston makes no more than 10 mill. per movie.

If Angelina had no life or family like aniston then she too could make 3+ movies and get $$$$. Instead Angelina does make work non-stop, she actually takes time off.

Also you left out the very successful SALT, which made almost 300 million world wide and Angelina was paid well for that.

SALT sucked. If you’ve ever seen it…and apparently YOU HAVE NOT…it looks like it was made by a middle school theatrical department. There was definitely no plot getting in the way of that horrible piece of crap.

Only if you’re 12 would you like this movie…or the emotional equivalent thereof.
