Taylor Lautner is the highest paid 'Twilight' star of 2010


Vanity Fair has unveiled its "Hollywood's Top 40" feature for 2010, and three of the Twilight Saga's biggest stars were on the list - Taylor Lautner ("Jacob Black"), Robert Pattinson ("Edward Cullen"), and Kristen Stewart ("Bella Swan").


Robert Pattinson placed 15th:

ESTIMATED 2010 EARNINGS: $27.5 MILLION (2009 rank: 35)

$12.5 million: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 (fee for co-starring)

$12.5 million: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 (fee for co-starring)

$1.5 million: Water for Elephants (fee for starring alongside Reese Witherspoon in upcoming literary adaptation)

$1 million: Fee for starring in upcoming costume drama Bel Ami; older film revenue, mostly from Twilight franchise

Kristen Stewart placed 13th (note: this made her the highest-ranking woman, as the New York Times points out):

ESTIMATED 2010 EARNINGS: $28.5 MILLION (2009 rank: 37)

$12.5 million: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 (fee for co-starring)

$12.5 million: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 (fee for co-starring)

$2.5 million: On the Road (fee for starring in long-aborning adaptation of the Jack Kerouac classic)

$1 million: Older film revenue, mostly from Twilight franchise

Taylor Lautner placed 9th on the list:

ESTIMATED 2010 EARNINGS: $33.5 million (2009 rank: —)

$12.5 million: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 (fee for co-starring in upcoming penultimate Twilight film)

$12.5 million: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 (fee for co-starring in upcoming final Twilight film)

$7.5 million: Abduction (fee for starring in upcoming John Singleton thriller)

$1 million: Older film revenue, mostly from Twilight franchise

Now, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were both ranked on this list for 2009, in 35th and 37th places respectively, but Taylor Lautner was not.

Then, exactly one year ago by the way, it was predicted that Lautner would show up on 2010's list. "Who will we see on the list in 2011? Count on Twilight's Taylor Lautner to be here." Indeed, he is . . . and he's the highest-paid Twilight star for the year at that. If Lautner's film resume continues to expand in the fashion it has been, 2011's list might turn out exactly the same way.

Note that collectively, the Twilight trio are the youngest three on the list . . meaning Lautner is also the youngest on Vanity Fair's Top 40.
