Turns out werewolf-vampire love triangles pay off -- big time.
Thanks to her massive Twilight and Snow White and the Huntsman salaries, Kristen Stewart comes in first on Forbes magazine's 2012 list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, having raked in $34.5 million between May 2011 and May 2012. (At 22, she's also the youngest actress featured in the roundup.)
Stewart earned $12.5 million for the last two Twilight films, and was also able to negotiate a share of the films' total profits. (Forbes points out that Stewart's Twilight payday wasn't any more than Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson's; it was her second leading lady salary for Snow White and the Huntsman that put her over the top.)
Cameron Diaz comes in second on the mag's list, pulling in $34 million since last May -- just shy of K-Stew's top spot salary.
