Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart tops Forbes ‘Bankable’ stars list

“Black Swan” star Natalie Portman rode to the top of Forbes’ Most Bankable Actors list for films in which Portman stars reportedly earn $42.70 for every dollar she earns on average.

 Portman edged out “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart for the top spot.

Portman’s “No Strings Attached” and “Your Highness” were also taken into account. “No Strings Attached,” a romantic comedy with Ashton Kutcher, earned $150 million at the global box office and only cost about $25 million to produce. “Your Highness” was flop with a bloated $50 million budget, grossing on $25 million.

Stewart is part of movies that rake in $40.60 for every dollar she is paid. Since the “Twilight” films grossed $3.3 billion worldwide, her return on investment was high.
Stewart received the same salaries as her Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner for the final films. But Pattison ranked the fourth most-bankable actor, and Lautner placed sixth.
