NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Kristen Stewart, who shot to fame as Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga films and has a starring role in Snow White And The Huntsman, jumped to the top of Forbes.com's annual list of highest-paid actresses on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old earned an estimated US$34.5 million (S$43.8 million) from May 2011 to May 2012 and pushed Angelina Jolie into fourth place.
Cameron Diaz, who had a surprise hit with Bad Teacher, came in second with US$34 million.
'She (Stewart) is an up-and-coming star. She is earning a lot of money from one of the most successful franchises of all time. This is who you would expect to see right now,' said Ms Dorothy Pomerantz, Forbes Los Angeles bureau chief.
