Talk about a hefty payday!
Rounding out the top three were Cameron Diaz, 39, who had a banner year thanks in part to Bad Teacher, and Sandra Bullock, 47 – who, according to Forbes, is still collecting from her Oscar-winning turn in 2009’s The Blind Side.
Propelled by her paychecks from both the Twilight franchise as well as her starring role in Snow White and the Huntsman, Stewart, at 22, is also the youngest actress on the list – by 16 years.
And it’s a safe bet to say that she will have a place on the list next year as well. The fifth and final installment in the Twilight film series, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, comes out in November.
