Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner on Forbes Celebrity 100
Kristen Stewart is listed on Forbes’ The Celebrity 100 at #43 and Taylor Lautner listed at #67. Robert Pattinson did not make the list for 2011. Forbes explains why Rob did not make the list this year.
The annual list spotlights the celebs with the most money and fame from the worlds of movies, TV, sports, books and modelling. One of the biggest surprises this year: Taylor Lautner makes his debut while Robert Pattinsondrops off the list.
Both Twilight stars earned the same amount of money over the last 12 months, $26.5 million. So how did Lautner beat Pattinson? Fame. Lautner simply garnered more press attention. Because Lautner had the film Abduction in theaters within the last 12 months in addition to Twilight: Breaking Dawn, he was in the press and on TV and the web more than Pattinson.
To compile our list we talk to dozens of agents, managers, producers, lawyers and other people in the know to come up with estimates for what each celebrity earned over the past 12 months. We don’t deduct for things like taxes, agent or manager fees.
We then combine that earnings number with a fame metric based on web hits, press mentions, TV and radio mentions, magazine covers and social networking prowess. The result is out Celebrity 100 power list.
I thought all of them were in the press equally. Especially with Kristen and Rob together, Rob filming Cosmopolis and Bel Ami.
Congratulations to Kristen and Taylor!
