For the sake of this list, we're only looking at box office gross. We looked at the earnings for the top films of the year and credited each star the entire box office.

We did not include animated films, although they were some of the top-earning of the year, because the stars aren't really the big draw for those films.
The Twilight films have been perennial earners, so it's no surprise to see Pattinson on this list. He ranks above his costar Kristen Stewart thanks to Remember Me, a weepy romance that earned a healthy $56 million on an estimated budget of $16 million. Pattinson's next film is an adaptation of the bestselling book Water for Elephants.
