Just How Rich is Taylor Lautner?

Taylor Lautner had a great 2009. But it's only the beginning of what looks to be a very lucrative acting career. Even though he hasn't seen the kind of success that Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have, he's bringing up the rear very nicely.

Part of the reason is because Taylor's Jacob Black character is the Anti-Robert Pattinson / Edward Cullen foil that gives Twi-Hards an alternative to pale faced sensitivity. Jacob is an ass-kicking werewolf who's also battling for Bella Swan's heart. The love triangle is proving to be irresistible and Taylor's salary increase reflects that... he made a measly million bucks for his first turn in the series and he's worked that up to 5 million for the upcoming Twilight: Eclipse. That's just 2.5 million off the top salaries pulled down by the main stars.

So it looks like Taylor Lautner has a lot to look forward to while movie makers flood his mailbox with new scripts that will help the 18 year old leave this character behind and explore the action movie star that he should become.

Here are the numbers:

Taylor Lautner's Net Worth as of March 2010:

$10 Million
$1 Million for Twilight
$4 Million for Twilight: New Moon
$5 Million for Twilight: Eclipse

Nice work... if you can get it! Way to go Taylor!!!
