Long before we came to know her as Isabella “Bella” Swan on Twilight, Kristen Stewart was working as a child actor for years on commercial and television sets.
By age 9, Kristen was cast in her very first film, 2000’s The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, as an extra. Her other early work included her role in 2002’s Panic Room, where she starred as the daughter of Jodie Foster’s character, and her first leading role in the 2004 movie, Catch That Kid. The role quickly led to more acclaim for Kristen—which also meant even bigger gigs like 2004’s Speak and Into the Wild in 2007.
Of course, none of these roles caused quite the same cultural moment as Kristen Stewart’s breakout as Bella Swan in the Twilight series, which was based on the series of young adult novels by the same name. The franchise released five films over the course of four years, beginning with 2008’s Twilight and concluding with 2012’s Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Kristen’s role in the film effectively catapulted her career to new heights—and it earned her one of her prettiest paychecks to date.
So, how much was Kristen Stewart paid, exactly?
What is Kristen Stewart’s salary for Twilight?
Kristen Stewart starred in all five films of the Twilight saga: including 2008’s eponymous Twilight, 2009’s New Moon, 2010’s Eclipse, 2011’s Breaking Dawn: Part One and Breaking Dawn: Part 2, released in 2012. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kristen received a salary of $2 million for the first installment of the Twilight series. However, her pay increased wildly by the time she starred in the final two Twilight movies, making a reported $25 million for both films (around $12.5 million each).
This doesn’t even include a reported 7.5 percent in backend earnings from the total gross box office fees for the films. With Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 making $712.2 million in box office earnings and Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 bringing in nearly $830 million at the box office, this puts Kristen’s reported backend earnings at around $53 million and $62 million for Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Breaking Dawn Part 2, respectively.
What is Kristen Stewart’s net worth in 2021?

Kristen Stewart’s net worth is made up of her earnings throughout her long career in film and television, including her salaries from aforementioned films like the Twilight saga, Panic Room and, of course, Spencer.
