Forbes.com analyzed salaries and estimated box office sales from the actor's last three films over the past three years to calculate the studio's return on investment. With that information, the second best actor for the buck was "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart who brought in $40.6 dollars. Stewart's two co-stars in the "Twilight" films were also cash cows for the studio with Robert Pattinson coming in fourth place making $31.70 dollars -- and Taylor Lautner was No. 6, making $29.50 for the studio for every dollar paid.
