Looking for a good investment? Natalie Portman and Kristen Stewart are pretty much guaranteed to make you money — like, a lot of it.
Portman ranked No. 1, bringing in $42.70 in box office returns for every dollar the studios spend on her, with K.Stew close behind with a $40.60 return on investment. Despite headlining such big franchises as "Twilight" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," Stewart was bested by Portman mostly due to the incredible $329 million worldwide gross of "Black Swan," which cost all of $13 million to produce.
Also, believe it or not, "No Strings Attached" cost, like, ten bucks and earned $150 million. Were you one of the people who contributed to that?
Shia LaBeouf ($35.80), K.Stew's "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson ($31.70) and Daniel Radcliffe ($30.50) round out the top five, with "Here Comes the Boom" star Kevin James making a surprise appearance on the list at No. 10 with $22.40.
Well, this is certainly a better Forbes list to be on than, say, the Most Overpaid Actors of 2012. Maybe Natalie Portman and Eddie Murphy should make a movie together just to see if it breaks exactly even?
Portman is currently filming "Thor: The Dark World," which hits theaters on Nov. 8, 2013, and is in pre-production on a new western, "Jane Got a Gun."
