Kristen Stewart and the rest of the "Twilight" gang are some of Hollywood's most bankable stars!

The actors in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" are enjoying continued financial success as a result of their roles in the film series. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner are all making and spending a lot of money these days because of the "Twilight" movies. The three were reported to have made $25 million each for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1." Here is a look at just how well the trio is doing right now.

Kristen Stewart

Stewart recently spent nearly $2.2 million on a 4-bedroom, 4 -bathroom house near Robert Pattinson's home. Now that she has reconciled with Pattinson, it makes sense that she would want to live near him. Stewart made an estimated $34 million between May 2011 and May 2012 between her "Twilight" paycheck and her earnings for "Snow White and the Huntsman." She is now in the position to command $12 million per film, making her one of Hollywood's richest and most powerful young celebrities.

Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson is not only making a lot of money from films, he is also raking in cash for celebrity endorsements. He recently inked a deal with Christian Dior worth $12 million, proving he is a bankable celeb on and off-screen. The three-year deal will have Pattinson appearing in ads for the Dior fragrance line. The star recently purchased a $6.2 million home, showing that he isn't afraid to spend as big as he earns.

Taylor Lautner

Lautner has also been earning some big paychecks these days, just like his "Twilight" co-stars. At the age of 20, he has managed to crack the Forbes list of the top 100 most powerful celebrities, beating out Robert Pattinson. He has earned an estimated $26.5 million in the last year from his "Twilight" role and in films like "Abduction." As for how Lautner likes to spend his hard-earned money, he recently purchased a $200,000 Mecedes Benz. The pricey car is capable of reaching speeds of 200 miles per hour, making it a perfect purchase for a young Hollywood celebrity.
