Top Box Office Performers

While many a movie star is remembered for being "box office poison," failing to earn a studio or production company their salaries back in box office sales, the folks at Forbes have compiled a list of celebs who consistently produce gold. Oscar winner Natalie Portman tops the list, returning an average of $42.70 for every $1 she's paid. Credit the phenomenon of 2011's awards hit "Black Swan," made for just $13 million and earning $329 million in domestic and international sales. That's a lot of tutus. The list was calculated using Forbes' Celebrity 100 index and receipts from Box Office Mojo over the last three films from a given star – like "Twilight Saga" queen Kristen Stewart, who clocked in at number two. Stewart brings in a reported $40.60 for every $1 placed in her Balenciaga wallet, thanks to the juggernaut conclusions to the vampire franchise "Breaking Dawn" parts 1 and 2. Stewart also performed an impressive feat in launching "Snow White and the Huntsman," co-starring Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. She's already confirmed for a sequel. Though former "Transformers" headliner Shia LaBeouf rounds out the top three, Forbes makes an interesting note about his earning potential in lists to come. The actor, who rates $35.80 on the dollar, has been more than vocal about his desire to step away from blockbuster films like Michael Bay's explosive fare and move into a more independent genre – not your typical lucrative popcorn flick. Other bold-named boys who appear on the list include Robert Pattinson (#4) and Daniel Radcliffe (#5).

Kate And Leo’s Friendship Of 23 Years is STRONG
Hollywood isn’t exactly known for its sentimentality – the ruthless nature of the film industry, along with the pressure of being in the public eye means that long-lasting friendships can be somewhat of a rarity. These two have bucked the trend, however, even with the added pressure of everyone willing their favorite on-screen couple to just do it already and get together romantically. “She’s such a terrific person in general that our chemistry naturally happened on screen. We just like each other as people,” -Leo The pair first met on the set of Titanic in 1996. Kate was 21 years old, with Leo just a year older. They portrayed such a perfect romance on-screen that the rumors about their relationship in real life inevitably began to flow. It never happened though, not officially at least! While receiving the award, she dedicated many kind words to Leo, who sat in the audience blowing kisses at her. “Leo, I’m so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you and how much I’ve loved you for 13 years…I love you with all my heart, I really do,” she said, with tears in her eyes. Meanwhile, Kate had previously chosen Leo to walk her down the aisle for her third marriage in 2012.  She has 2 children from these relationships and raising them was hard, given her tight work schedule. During these times, Leo even managed to help Kate with the children. Kate said, “I’m not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.” May their beautiful friendship continue!!!
