Kristen Stewart has become Hollywood's highest paid actress.

The 22-year-old - who is dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson - is said to have banked around 34.5 million US dollars in the past 12 months from the Twilight Saga films, where she plays Bella Swan, as well as from her starring role in Snow White And The Huntsman.

Kristen's estimated earnings dwarfed those of fellow Tinseltown stars who have been in the industry for longer, such as Angelina Jolie, who made around 20 million dollars in the past year, Charlize Theron and Julia Roberts.

Cameron Diaz, who starred in comedy Bad Teacher and pregnancy comedy What To Expect When You're Expecting, came a close second with earnings of around 34 million in the Forbes.com survey, while Sandra Bullock, who starred in Stephen Daldry's post 9/11 drama Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close, took third place.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Meryl Streep, Kristen Wiig and Jennifer Aniston made up the rest of the top ten.

To determine the top earners, Forbes.com used estimates including pay from films, endorsements and advertising work.
