Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Make Top-Earning Screen Couples List (PHOTOS)

Our favorite onscreen couples -- Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and Emma Watson along with real-life lovers Twilight's Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart -- top Forbes list of Hollywood's Top-earning Screen Couples.

The love-hate relationship of blockbuster couple Ron and Hermoine played by Rubert and Emma came in at No. 1 as the Potter films raked in about 4.2 billion worldwide.

Who came in a very close second?

It's the Twilight series love story between human Bella Swan and vampire Edward Cullen, played by none other than KStew and RPattz (as you know, they're also an offscreen couple). This Saga has so far brought in $2.5 billion worldwide, but they still have another installment left to go. Part two of Breaking Dawn hits theaters in November 2012.

Which onscreen duo is your fave: Emma and Rupert, or Rob and Kristen? Defend your decision in the comments.

Other top earners include former Transformers costars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox (though she was replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) who grossed $1.5 billion, and Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst whose Spider-Man movie brought in $890 million.

    As Katieev above pointed out, it's highest earning of the last Half Decade, so Breaking Dawn 2 won't come into it and the first four HP movies don't either. So its based on 4 HP movies and 4 Twilight movies. To be honest though even if you include future Breaking Dawn 2 gross and go 5 twilight movies against 4 potter movies, BD2 would have to out gross Titantic to break equal... I love both franchises (rare I know) but that ain't gonna happen! Rob and Kristen will still do well on all time grossing couples list though they'd probably be about 4th, which is good going!

    *Kristen* forgive my typo.

    I say this liking Rob and Kirsten... I just don't like articles that aren't accurate and misquote their orginal source ie Forbes Magazine...

    Would you really call 1.7billion close? Also the Forbes list is the highest earning couples "of the last five years", you missed that last important bit. So they aren't counting the 3.5 billion that the first four potter films made... This isnt highest earning onscreen couples ever, Forbes also did that awhile back and Emma and Rupert were top with 7.7 billion...
