Most of Kristen Stewart's movies suck, but until the Twilight thing finally ends and she has to stand on her own without it, she is going to keep making a lot of money because studios still have yet to figure out that just because you have a name doesn't mean you make good movies, or bring in people. Hello Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman. To the credit of the studios I think they have finally discovered that the Jessicas, both Biel and Alba are better off in straight action roles with a bunch of people or small roles that are good, but within a big cast, like Valentine's Day or New Year's Eve. There also have not been that many Katherine Heigl movies lately. Anyway, Kristen was the highest paid actress last year. She made $34.5M last year. Yeah, I know. Life sucks. Cameron Diaz finished second but that is only because she made a ton of money on Bad Teacher. Sandra Bullock charges a lot per movie so even though she did not do a bunch, she finished third.

How do men do compared to women? The top ten women got paid $200M. The top ten men? $361M. Almost double. I think as you see more movies like Bridesmaids do really well with men and women and showing studios that men will go see women in movies other than for sex and nude scenes that those salaries will start to close. It's hard though when you have Robert Downey Jr alone making $100M for one movie.
