The women of Hollywood are bringing home the bacon, and leading Forbes list of the Highest Paid Actresses is none other than Twilight darling, Kristen Stewart.

The Snow White and the Huntsman actress, 22, has beat out the likes of industry veterans Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock — and she’s only 22.

So just how much is K-Stew worth?

According to the financial magazine Stewart had become “indispensable” as part of the Twilight saga and this, combined with her mega hit Snow White and the Huntsman, means she now commands a $34.5 million asking price!

In getting this number, Forbes considered “upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.”

Not far behind her is Diaz, who earned $34 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

Her role as the world’s worst educator in Bad Teacher landed her the big bucks as the 39-year-old got a share of the larger than expected earnings for the comedy.

However, proving she is still one America’s favorites, Bullock took out the third spot despite her only having one film release this year – the Oscar-nominated Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close – being a relative box office flop.

Bullock – who took time off to raise her adopted son Louis – was able to stay high in the earnings stake “thanks to money she still brings home from The Blind Side and the upcoming big-budget sci-fi flick, Gravity,” the magazine said.

Angelina Jolie, who topped last year’s list, dropped to the fourth spot with earnings of $20 million.

As Forbes announced its list, Stewart was on the other side of the world promoting Snow White and the Huntsman, in her costar Chris Hemsworth’s native Australia.

The Twilight actress once again swapped out couture for comfort, quickly changing her Christian Louboutin heels for her favorite Converse kicks after walking the red carpet in Sydney.
