Taylor Lautner Outearned Will Smith and Robert Downey Jr. Last Year

We already knew that Taylor Lautner was rich, but Vanity Fair has helpfully provided perspective on the Twilight actor's wealth by comparing it against the war chests accumulated by other A-list movie stars. The magazine's findings? He's still superrich! In fact, the 18-year-old Lautner outgrossed deep-pocketed stars like Will Smith, Robert Downey Jr., and his Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart last year, though James Cameron, Johnny Depp, and Steven Spielberg topped the earnings list. (VF also alleges that Lautner made more money than Tyler Perry or Jerry Bruckheimer, yet neglects to include those men's TV fortunes — odd, since Spielberg's main 2010 asset is listed as the $50 million he took home from Universal theme-park royalties and consulting fees. But whatever, let's just imagine how many motorcycles and Power Bars Tay-Tay is probably buying right now.) [VF]
