Kristen Stewart, Forbes list

Thanks to "Twilight" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," Kristen Stewart tops Forbes' list of Hollywood's highest earning actresses. While the former's final installment is coming this November, the latter's sequel is already in development despite its poor reviews and the critical censenus over Stewart's miscasting. She's also the youngest on the list by sixteen years. The two very commercial films earned Stewart $34.5 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

Next on the list is Cameron Diaz with "Bad Teacher" and "What To Expect When You're Expecting" ($34 million). Residuals and endorsements count: In third, Sandra Bullock is still raking it in from "The Blind Side" (in addition to her "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and "Gravity" paychecks) with $25 million. Angelina Jolie, who was busy with her low-earning directorial debut "In The Land of Blood and Honey," takes fourth thanks mostly to residuals, endorsements (Louis Vuitton) and media omnipresence (she appeared on 78 magazine covers in the year) ($20 million). The rest of the list includes Charlize Theron ($18 million), who made a career comeback with "Young Adult," "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Prometheus"; Sarah Jessica Parker ($15 million); Meryl Streep ($12 million); Kristen Wiig ($12 million) and Jennifer Aniston ($11 million).

Check out Forbes' video below detailing the top five's earnings. It's nice to see both hard-working and hilarious Wiig and the woman considered by many to be the greatest actress of all time, Streep, in the top ten. Stewart may be on top, but this isn't exactly an Oscar race. [Forbes]
