Kristen Stewart Beats Robert Pattinson as Hollywood's Biggest Bang for the Buck Star

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are Hollywood's number one, undisputed "biggest bang for the buck power duo." Together the Twilight Saga love birds can't be defeated--not even by the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. In fact, the Breaking Dawn dynamic duo could probably only be dethroned by the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez--if the famous teen pair known as Jelena ever decide to co-star in a movie.

Yes, according to Forbes Magazine, for every $2 the studios invest in films starring R-Pattz and his lady-love, said studios make a combined profit of $95.40. Not bad. But what happens when the 2 romantically involved stars are rated separately. Oops. Kristen Stewart beats out Robert Pattinson, and she beats him rather badly. For every $1 K-Stew is paid in salary, she earns the studio a whopping $55.83 return on the investment. R-Pattz not so much. In fact, the Twilight heart-throb limps along behind his girlfriend, earning the studios a measly $39.43 return on every $1 they pay him.

However, Rob shouldn't feel bad. Kristen Stewart is Tinsel town's undisputed bang for the buck champ. She placed number one on Forbes' list, beating out such stars as Anne Hathaway ($45.67 return on investment), Daniel Radcliffe ($34.24) and loud-mouthed lout, Shia Labeouf ($29.40). Poor Rob came in third. Twihards who know about these things will wonder how that's possible since R-Pattz and K-Stew earn exactly the same salary per film. Not to mention the fact that they also star in the same films.

According to Forbes, the disparity occurred because Robert Pattinson " has had more extensive film credits" than his girlfriend. Kristen Stewart's "bang for the buck" evaluation was based solely on her 3 Twilight movies, but the magazine evaluated Robert Pattinson on the Twilight Saga plus Water for Elephants and Remember Me. Apparently, averaging it all out lowered his overall score.

So there you have it. You can click here to see how other stars measured up against R-Pattz and K-Stew in the "bang for the buck" competition.
