  • Kristen Stewart is at the top of this year's Forbes list of best paid actresses

    Life is pretty sweet for Kristen Stewart. She stars in box office smashers, dates the gorgeous Robert Pattinson and now she has been named as the highest paid actress in Hollywood.

    The Twilight star is at the top of this year’s Forbes list for best paid actresses thanks to her starring roles in Breaking Dawn Part 1 and her recent flick, Snow White and the Huntsman.

    Kristen has earned $12.5 million (£7.9m) for each of the five Twilight Saga films, as well as a cut of the earnings.

    Between May 2011 and May 2012, Stewart has managed to make an estimated $34.5 million (£21.9m).

    Not bad for a 22-year-old!

    Kristen is the youngest woman on the list by 16 years and beat the likes of Cameron Diaz, who came second having earned $34 million (£21m), followed by Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie and Kirsten’s Snow White and the Huntsman co-star Charlize Theron.
