When it comes to making mega bucks, we look at Hollywood stars. Thanks to The Twilight Saga, Kristen Stewart is the Highest Paid actress! But, what helped her edge out the competition?

Kristen made $34.5 Million in the past year. Not too shabby for only being 22-years-old. The last two Twilight movies earned Kristen $12.5 Million and even negotiated a share of the films' total profits. Surprisingly it was her second leading lady salary for Snow White and the Huntsman that put her at Number One on Forbes list!

Granted, I haven't seen Snow White yet to see how well she acts, but personally I am not a fan of hers. I like that she hasn't let fame go to her head, because she still looks very uncomfortable in front of the camera, on screen or off screen, and keeps things to herself (ahem....your relationship with Robert Pattinson.) So how she made her dough is incredible in my mind. Being apart of Twilight is a definite plus to making money! Not to knock her too much though, fans love her and it shows!

What really surprises me though is all the other actresses she beat on this list! Number two with $34 Million is Cameron Diaz. The movie Bad Teacher made over $216 Million on a $20 Million budget. Huge profit for Cameron.

Coming in third is one of my favorite actresses, Sandra Bullock. May of last year to May of this year Sandra raked in $25 Million. Even though her last movie, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, was not a box office hit, Sandra is still a woman with power and can get top dollar to be in a movie.

Do you think Kristen is worthy of making as much money as she has, or is she being over paid?
