Taylor Lautner # 9 Hollywood earner this year!

How much will Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, the three young stars of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' earn for their work on the two-part series finale?

Hard to say; in addition to their salaries of $25 million apiece, they're also entitled to 7.5 percent of the gross, which could raise their fees by tens of millions more. ('Breaking Dawn Part 1' has already earned $283.5 million worldwide since opening on Friday.) It doesn't seem like they'll be able to keep earning such lofty paychecks after 'Twilight,' but for now, they're among the highest paid young actors in Hollywood.

Team Edward may have won the battle for Bella's heart, but Team Jacob raked in more bucks.

Vanity Fair rated the 19-year-old Lautner the ninth biggest earner in Hollywood this year (Stewart was No. 13, Pattinson No. 15), with an estimated take of $33.5 million. That includes $25 million for the Breaking Dawn ' two-parter, plus $7.5 million for his recent thriller Abduction and another $1 million in royalties.

Then again, 'Abduction' flopped at  the box office, casting doubt on whether Lautner can succeed in roles other than hunky werewolf. Still, as long as he maintains his ab-tastic physique, he shouldn't have any trouble finding work
