Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies,

Taylor Lautner, James Cameron, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp

Vanity Fair has released a list of 2010’s top money-makers in Hollywood, and some of the figures are sickening.

Which actor made the most moolah? And which actress managed to nab the biggest paychecks for her work? The full list has a vampire, a werewolf . . . and one dreamer who loves the color blue (though, not as much as he loves green).

And Hollywood’s highest-paid actor is . . . Johnny Depp, who raked in an estimated $100 million in 2010. Hollywood’s second most-paid leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, falls well behind Depp with $62 million. But neither man’s 2010 take compares to the list’s number one wage-earner. Director James Cameron scored a whopping $275 for his work, easily overshadowing the next top-earning director. Steven Spielberg nailed down only $80 million for 2010.

Hollywood’s top leading lady is none other than Bella Swan -- we mean, Kristen Stewart. The Twilight princess pulled in $28.5 million, nailing down 13th place on the overall list. Her Twilight co-stars, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, also made the list (they fall in 9th and 15th place, respectively)
