Twilight star is No 15 in Hollywood earners list

Robert Pattinson has been named the highest paid British actor in Hollywood, raking in a whopping £18million in 2010.  

The 24-year-old heartthrob ranks at No 15 in Vanity Fairs list of the highest paid Hollywood stars, soaring above the other two Brits on the list: Daniel Craig at No 28 earning £12million and Guy Ritchie at No 39 with £9million.

Rob‘s high earnings were largely due to his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the hugely successful Breaking Dawn – a two-part film that spells the end of The Twilight Saga.

He was paid £8.3million for each part of Breaking Dawn, as well as £650,000 in film revenue due for the three previous films in the series.

His Twilight castmates Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner ranked at No 13 and No 9 on the list, raking in £19million and £22 respectively.

Rob also raked in £950,000 for his role in the upcoming literary adaptation Water For Elephants co-starring Reese Witherspoon.
