You may want to sit down before you see the numbers.

Whenever popular movies or TV series get renewed for more seasons or spin-offs, the cast members' salaries skyrocket as a result. And more often than not, the gap between the first and last paychecks they receive for their work on the project is just jaw-droppingly huge.

That's definitely true for the main trio of Twilight actors — Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner — who starred in all five films of the franchise. With each new installment, their salaries increased substantially, improving the stars' net worth figures.

Taylor Lautner's worth is estimated at $40 million, and the portrayal of hot werewolf Jacob(‘s abs) in The Twilight Saga accounts for quite a fraction of it. The first installment brought him $1 million, while the subsequent movies translated into $4, $7.5, $12.5, and $12.5 paychecks respectively. Besides, Lautner got a 2.5% cut of the two final parts' box office.

Kristen Stewart is now a successful actress with an impressive net worth of $70 million. While the first part of the vampire saga brought her a modest $2-million paycheck, she made around $12.5 million for each of the last two movies (Breaking Dawn), in addition to keeping 7.5% of the profits to herself.

Robert Pattinson is the wealthiest of the three actors, with a $100-million net worth. He was paid $2 million for the first installment, and his paycheck for the second movie skyrocketed to an impressive $12 million. Like his co-stars, the actor was awarded $12.5 million for each final part of Twilight, and he also received a 7.5% cut of the profits like Stewart.

And those percent cuts must have been hefty as well, given that The Twilight Saga grossed billions of dollars in the box office.

All in all, the whole project proved to be immensely lucrative for all three actors, and Stewart and Pattinson surely made good use of their Twilight fame, acting their way up to Hollywood's upper echelon and further growing their net worths.
