Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson were each paid $2M to star in the hugely successful first Twilight film, based on a series of teen-vampire novels by Stephanie Meyer (who makes a kind of cute cameo in the film). But for the sequel? It looks like they’re each getting at least a $10M raise, plus a cut of the next film’s box-office take. Not bad at all, kids.
I saw the flick this weekend, and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. And I thought both Kristen and Rob were great in it, despite some of the shit Kristen’s taken from critics. I thought she was endearing and convincing and perfect for the role, and she’s ever so adorable. And Rob Pattinson? If you’re ever having trouble finding someone to have sex with, seriously, I’m just a phone call away. I love you. I was never too impressed with the dude in all the red-carpet photos I’d seen of him, but, on screen? He’s sex personified. It’s awesome.
