Robert Pattinson probably couldn't be much happier right now, what with the phenomenal success of the 'Twilight Saga' series continuing - commercially at least - with the huge grossing latest instalment of 'Breaking Dawn - Part 1'. However, the British star has also leapt up the rich list for those under 30 years of age to 3rd place.
The list, compiled by entertainment magazine Heat! Is based on estimates and should perhaps be taken with a pinch of salt; nevertheless, Pattinson now sits pretty in third place with estimated earnings of almost 25 million; he knocked 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson out of the top three, though top place remains that of the film's main star Daniel Radcliffe, with a supposed income of some 51.75 million. Keira Knightly breaks the boys up having earned an estimated 30.87 million, reports The Press Association.
Elsewhere, the 22 year-old actor still hasn't been able to let 'Breaking Dawn - Part 1's' sex scene between himself and real life girlfriend Stewart go. Entertainmentwise reports the star commenting further on the latest film's polarising moment to Espectacular TV, admitting that he found it difficult. "We were staring into the camera doing orgasm faces and stuff and it becomes unbelievably embarrassing," said Pattinson, though adding "But I think it ended up good at the end I think."
