Pattinson and Stewart Are Rich Suckers

Twilight costars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart continued their promotional duties for their runaway hit flick on Monday. The pair dropped in at the Hollywood office of the Cimarron Group, which has been handling the marketing blitz—trailers, MySpace page, official Web site, etc.—for the hugely popular film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's vampire-romance book.

It would be easy to feel sorry for the young (Pattinson's 22, Stewart's 18) actors.  They seem to be running themselves ragged to publicize the flick.

Rest assured, they're being well-compensated.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that, though the two were initially paid just $2 million each for their starring roles in Twilight, Summit Entertainment is giving the pair a massive pay bump due to the film's boffo box-office. The flick raked in $70.6 million on its opening weekend, and had a budget of just $37 million.

Pattinson and Stewart will receive an additional $10 million each for Twilight, plus $12 million for subsequent films—and at least one sequel is already planned. They'll also earn a percentage of any future Twilight movies' box-office takes.

That's a lot of cash. Now Pattinson can afford those kissing lessons that he so desperately needs. Or at least a comb so he can do something about that unruly coif of his.
