The actors in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" are enjoying continued financial success as a result of their roles in the film series. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner are all making and spending a lot of money these days because of the "Twilight" movies. The three were reported to have made $25 million each for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1." Here is a look at just how well the trio is doing right now.
Stewart recently spent nearly $2.2 million on a 4-bedroom, 4 -bathroom house near Robert Pattinson's home. Now that she has reconciled with Pattinson, it makes sense that she would want to live near him. Stewart made an estimated $34 million between May 2011 and May 2012 between her "Twilight" paycheck and her earnings for "Snow White and the Huntsman." She is now in the position to command $12 million per film, making her one of Hollywood's richest and most powerful young celebrities.
Robert Pattinson is not only making a lot of money from films, he is also raking in cash for celebrity endorsements. He recently inked a deal with Christian Dior worth $12 million, proving he is a bankable celeb on and off-screen. The three-year deal will have Pattinson appearing in ads for the Dior fragrance line. The star recently purchased a $6.2 million home, showing that he isn't afraid to spend as big as he earns.
Lautner has also been earning some big paychecks these days, just like his "Twilight" co-stars. At the age of 20, he has managed to crack the Forbes list of the top 100 most powerful celebrities, beating out Robert Pattinson. He has earned an estimated $26.5 million in the last year from his "Twilight" role and in films like "Abduction." As for how Lautner likes to spend his hard-earned money, he recently purchased a $200,000 Mecedes Benz. The pricey car is capable of reaching speeds of 200 miles per hour, making it a perfect purchase for a young Hollywood celebrity.
