Just when you thought you knew it all about the Twilight saga and the movies, you learn that, in fact, there’s new stuff you had no idea about. Like, how there was a mold of Kristen’s butt in order to create a special device that would help Taylor Lautner carry her around for long periods of time after having to shoot a scene multiple times.
“I literally went and got my rear end molded to make this day easier on Taylor,”
But where is that mold, exclaimed thousands of Krisbians. We have no idea but you can watch the behind the scenes video detailing this new tidbit here exclusively at EW.
Our favorite werewolf, Taylor Lautner, turned 21 years old!
Taylor, Taylor, where do we start? Taylor has been consistently great to the Twilight fans, always gracious and sweet, generous and awesome, and we really appreciate it. Here at Twilight Poison we’ve met him on several occasions, we’ve interviewed him, we’ve photographed him several times (don’t miss our exclusive shots, btw! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and he has always been wonderful, so we’re counting the ways we love him… with gifs! Sit back and enjoy this post after the jump. It’s a bit heavy, so let the gifs load, put some music on and read on, it’s worth it
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are some of Forbes’ Best Actors for the Buck, a list of actors who are worth every penny spent on their salary, thanks to the results they bring back at the box office. Kristen tops the list along with Natalie Portman.
To compile our list, we used data on actors’ earnings gathered for our Celebrity 100 list. Box office grosses and budget estimates are from Box Office Mojo. We looked at the last three films each actor starred in over the last three years that opened in more than 2,000 theaters, calculating the return on investment for the studios who pay his (or her) salary. We didn’t count movies where the actor was in a supporting or large ensemble role and we didn’t count animated movies. The actors who score well on this list tend to have small paydays and star in highly profitable movies.
Ranking second on our list is Kristen Stewart. For every dollar she gets paid Stewart returns an average $40.60. Stewart is in the unusual situation of ranking high on this list and topping our Highest-Earning Actress list. Usually, if an actor is earning more than anyone else in Hollywood, it’s hard for him or her to be considered a bankable investment. That high salary means the films have to do spectacularly to offer profitable returns to the studios.
Stewart was able to earn a ton over the last three years and offer a healthy return thanks to the Twilight franchise. Even though she was paid $25 million to star in the last two films, she was clearly worth the money. The Twilight films have grossed $3.3 billion at the global box office and the final film, Breaking Dawn Part 2, is still in theaters.
Her two co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, also make our list. Pattinson ranks 4th with a $31.70 return for every dollar he is paid. Lautner ranks 6th with a $29.50 return.
All three of the actors were paid the same for the final Twilight movies. The differences in their return numbers comes from their other projects. This year Stewart had Snow White and the Huntsman which turned a nice profit, grossing $400 million on an estimated budget of $170 million.
Pattinson’s other movies this year, Bel Ami and Cosmopolis, weren’t released in enough theaters to count for this list. The only other film we looking at for Pattinson was Water for Elephants which grossed $118 million at the global box office on a $38 million budget.
Lautner’s one non-Twilight film was Abduction, which didn’t do great. The film only cost $35 million to make but it grossed just $82 million at the box office worldwide, which means it probably just turned a small profit.
So many interviews to see! I’m posting two separate round up of videos with Rob, Kristen and Taylor so you’re not overwhelmed and don’t miss a thing either. See the rest of the interviews after the jump. (more…)
