Robert Pattinson

SHOCKINGLY Wealthy

From 'Twilight'

EXCLUSIVE

Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart Salary Twilight
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been thrown into the middle of a nasty lawsuit over who was responsible for paying their "Twilight" bonuses.  The suit is boring, but what they scored is interesting.

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Robert was given a $300,000 bonus for the first "Twilight."  The sum was supposedly based on box office receipts, which totaled $351 MILLION worldwide.

Now here's the plot twist ... When Robert and Kristen went to the bargaining table for "New Moon" -- aka Twilight 2 -- they either drove a hard bargain or realized they had gotten screwed the first time around.  According to the lawsuit, producers agreed to pay each of them $2.5 million for the first "Twilight."

The sequels certainly turned into a cash register for both stars.  Pattinson reportedly got $25 million for the 2 installments of "Breaking Dawn" -- plus back-end.

Hate your life yet.

Nope. I don't hate my life. They should be paid this much if the movie made a huge profit like it did. Good for them.

Oh, I still hate those awful movies !

No, TMZ, I don't hate my life YET and I don't think I ever will. Believe it or not, there are normal people out there who are happy without the $$ and fame.

Good for them. The movies generated hundreds of millions in revenue. They deserve to share handsomely in that loot.

Hate your life yet? Really? That's a bit condescending, don't you think? Well, let's see. The last book I worked on was a national best seller and received rave reviews.

So, TMZ writer, do you enjoy writing about the Kardashians for a living?

I'd be interested in what went on in terms of salary parity.
