The 20-year-old Stewart is now recognizable to teens around the world as Bella, the human caught between a vampire and a werewolf in the Twilight series. The movies have so far earned $1 billion at the box office and made Stewart a star. She stretched her wings this year with the indie film The Runaways where she played Joan Jett.

Forbes also posted a feature story on the power of the Twilight Saga. According to them, this newcomers to the list have been catapulted into fame and mainstream media, thanks in large to the success of the books and movies.

Here is an excerpt of their article:

That success helped Meyer earn $40 million this year, ranking her 59th on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. Last year, thanks in part to her non-Twilight book The Host, Meyer ranked 16th with $50 million. Her newest book, a spinoff of the Twilight series titled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, should bump her up the list again next year, especially since the story’s released is timed to coincide with the third Twilight film, Eclipse, which hits theaters June 30.

And Eclipse should be a blockbuster; it’s expected to make $75 million during its opening weekend alone, according to Exhibitor Relations. The series is already one of the most profitable in recent movie history. The first two Twilight films cost a reported cumulative $90 million to produce and have earned $1.1 billion at the box office. That’s helped turn tiny Summit Entertainment into a growing film studio. Summit is also behind films like Oscar-winner The Hurt Locker, Knowing and Furry Vengeance.

In other news, Taylor Lautner may not have made it into the list but he was included in Forbes’ 17  Stars To Watch List. This list looks at the 17 celebrities who may be included in the Most Powerful List next year.

Lautner actually managed to make millions of Twilight fans forget about Robert Pattinson as they swooned on Team Jacob. Now Lautner is the go-to man for upcoming action franchises like Stretch Armstrong, for which he’ll receive a reported $7.5 million. With the final installment of the Twilight series being broken into two movies, Lautner has a chance to earn big next year.

British rockers Muse was also included in the list.

Already a hit in their home country, English rock band Muse is finally breaking through to the American mainstream. Their tour in support of their record The Resistance will continue through the end of 2010, and the band’s song Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever) was the first single released from the soundtrack to Eclipse, the next installment of the juggernaut Twilight saga.
