According to Forbes, Stewart took in $34.5 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

That tally accounts for the $12.5 million she reportedly took in for each "The Twilight Saga -- Breaking Dawn" film, plus her new fairy-tale revamp, "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Oh, and did we mention that, at 22, Stewart is also by far the youngest actress on the list?

For fans of celebrity rivalries, it's probably also worth noting that Stewart handily beat out her "Huntsman" co-star, who only earned $18 million, according to Forbes.
