Perhaps Kristen Stewart really is the fairest of them all. The Snow White and the Huntsman star tops this year's Forbes list of highest-paid actresses with earnings of $34.5 from May 2011 to May 2012. Largely thanks to the $12.5 million (plus a share of the profits) she received for each of the two-part The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn films, Stewart dethroned reigning queens Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker, who last year shared the crown with an estimated $30 million each. The two women dropped to numbers four ($20 million) and seven ($15 million), respectively.
Twenty-two-year-old Stewart is 16 years younger than the next youngest person on the list, 38-year-old Kristen Wiig, whose Bridesmaids and Saturday Night Live earnings brought her $12 million. Cameron Diaz landed just below Stewart with an estimated $34 million, much of which came from a profit-sharing deal for the surprise hit Bad Teacher, which earned $216 million globally. There's a $9 million gap between Diaz and Forbes' number three leading lady, Sandra Bullock, who earned in $25 million.
