Name: Kristen Jaymes Stewart
Born: 9 April 1990
A native California girl, Kristen Stewart is best known for playing the role of Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga. But she had already been in many films before that. Her acting career began at the age of eight. After spending a year auditioning, she landed a small non-speaking part in The Thirteenth Year (1999). Next she was the “ring toss girl” in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas (2000), then a tomboy in The Safety of Objects (2001), and another tomboy part in Panic Room (2002) in which she appeared with Jodie Foster and earned a nomination for a Young Artist Award. Next came another thriller, Cold Creek Manor (2003) with Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone, earning another Young Artist Award nomination.
2004 brought Stewart her first leading role in the children’s action movie Catch That Kid, the part of Lila in the thriller Undertow, and the part of Melinda Sordino in Showtime’s television movie, Speak. Her only film in 2005 was the lacklustre fantasy-adventure, Zathura. 2006 brought her two films, playing the part of Maya in Fierce People and the leading role of Jess Solomon in the supernatural thriller The Messengers. Her 2007 films included In the Land of Women, Into the Wild, Jumper, What Just Happened and The Cake Eaters. That was also the year she found out she’d be playing the part of Bella in Twilight, released in 2008 where she has been romantically linked to her co-star Robert Pattinson.
Stewart went on to reprise the role in The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (2011) and Part II (2012), each of which paid $12.5 million. All during the Twilight years, Stewart appeared in plenty of other movies as well, such as Adventureland (2009), The Yellow Handkerchief (2009), Welcome to the Rileys (2010), The Runaways (2010), in which she played Joan Jett, On the Road (2012), and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012).
We place Stewart’s net worth at $55 million.
So how much is $55 million dollars really?
She and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson are romantically involved but keep their relationship firmly under wraps. She dropped $12,000 on a couple of vintage guitars for his Christmas gift this past year, but her $55 million could buy the top 10 most expensive guitars ever sold nearly six times over. But who needs 60 guitars? $ 55 million could also buy the most expensive instrument in the world – Stradivari’s Lady Tennant – but not more than 25 of them.
For a romantic evening at home, Kristen might also want to splash out on the most expensive champagne in the world – the so-called Shipwrecked 1907 Heidsieck. It sells for about $ 275 000 per bottle That’s about $ 55 000 per glass – so Kristen would be in red after 1,000 glasses (but by then probably too drunk to notice).
