PUBLIC OPINION > Kristen Stewart Is the Most Overpaid Actress
SodaHead Celebs 2012/06/21 16:00:00
Starring in the "Twilight" series has been both a blessing and a curse for Kristen Stewart. On the negative side, the series has plenty of critics and the paparazzi have been less than kind. On the positive side, she's friggin' loaded. In fact, at 22 years old she's the highest-paid actress in Hollywood. According to Forbes, she earned $34.5 million in the last year. We listed the seven highest-paid actresses and asked the public to pick the most overpaid.
Just as you might expect, Kristen Stewart was voted the most overpaid actress by far. Not only is she the highest-paid, but the majority of her income is from "Twilight." The series sells, but a lot of people question Stephanie Meyer's achievements, as well as Stewart's acting ability. Her acting in the first movie was the butt of every joke for a while. To be fair, Jodie Foster thinks she's great...
Sarah Jessica Parker
Stewart was so far ahead of (behind?) the competition that the rest of the choices were all within 12% of each other. But with that in mind, Sarah Jessica Parker took second-place. This year, Parker's income came from poorly received romcoms, "I Don't Know How She Does It" and "New Year's Eve." Men were especially hostile toward her paycheck.
Cameron Diaz was the first actress on this list that wasn't extremely predictable, and the first one who wasn't especially affected by any one demographic. There was a time Diaz might have received fewer votes, in the days of "Being John Malkovich," "Shrek," and "Vanilla Sky." But her most recent films -- "Bad Teacher" and "What to Expect When You're Expecting" -- are nothing to write home to.
