The 24-year-old comes in at 15th overall on the Hollywood rich list, compiled by Vanity Fair magazine.

Rob steals the crown from Daniel Radcliffe, who was previously Britain’s highest paid actor – thanks to his lucrative work in the Harry Potter franchise.

However, while Rob may have been top of the Brits, he was beaten by both his Twilight co-stars, with Kristen Stewart coming in 13th, with earnings of £17.6 million, and Taylor Lautner ranking 9th, having taken home a total of £20.7 million.
