The Incredible Sexual Egg: She was good in AdventurelandThere, I said it
Babwa Wawa: They knew damned well they would be making a sequel to New Moon, and they signed a virtually unknown actress to fill a key role in that movie. Why wouldn't they just give her a contract for the entire series? But not doing so, they had to realize they were giving her license to demand huge paydays going forward.
dragonchild: Business 101: No contract is non-negotiable. Negotiation is not about what's on the papers; it's about who has leverage. The reason why most contracts aren't re-negotiated is that, when founded on a background of static factors and both sides at least willing to accept the terms, it's a royal pain to start the process all over again. But that's not the case when an actress sees her face tied to a cash cow worth over a BILLION dollars.So, for all we know (I don't, but bear with me here), they very well may have had her sign that contract. But when Twilight exploded in popularity, at some point her agent realized they can force the studio to re-negotiate. How? Well. . . how can you force her to work? Threaten to fire her? That's a laugh. Sue her in court? After lawyers take their cut they won't recoup their losses no matter how much they paid her for previous movies. Break her knuckles? You've destroyed your franchise's key asset. Meanwhile you've invested a lot of money for the next movie, the media's salivating for a scandal and there's a stockholders' meeting coming up. You gotta start filming. Maybe you could kidnap her and lock her in a trailer, but when the camera's rolling she can decide to just sit there and not say a single line. Which may actually improve the quality of these movies, but unless the studio delivers to audience expectations no one gets paid. In other words, she's got all the leverage. That's nothing to hate her for; we should all be so lucky.There are cases where an actor was replaced, usually with disastrous results because the instant blow to the franchise's popularity was much worse than whatever the actor was demanding. So in other words, not even your trump card can beat her cards. No point in bluffing.Don't weep for the studios, though. . . they're making their money. If they weren't, they'd know. They have their bean counters crunching the numbers on this stuff and the agent would know VERY quickly if they were biting off more tha ...
wildcardjack: [msnbcmedia2.msn.com image 640x339]I saw three pics with the same expression and I thought "You're joking" then I found this in the slide show. She really doesn't move her face much. Ah, youth botoxing.
Babwa Wawa: But on these big franchises where there's no doubt that sequels will be made, I have to think that there's more profit to be made and less risk to be had if you have them all shot before the the first one is released like they did with the Lord of the Rings.

Rawhead Rex: I personally think she's pretty farkin hot...I kinda like brooding, non-expressions on hardbody chicks.Nothing wrong with this chick for a strictly sexual, use her like a fark doll, type of arrangement.She'd be awesome and I'd be happy to have her do me until I was unable to walk.That is all.
Mugato: La Belle Chienne: Still doesn't explain how she managed to get into the Snow White movie with Charlize Theron. Like Weener's photo shows, she has the exact same facial expression for everything. UGH. I can't stand her.Makes sense. They needed a teenager/early 20s girl. She's the biggest because of Twilight. She's who I would cast if I were a studio suit, God forbid.
Lost Thought 00: You'd think with all that money she could afford a decent nose job
Babwa Wawa: Aside from Panic Room, I haven't seen a single one of her movies.
meanmutton: Emma Watson, Ellen Page, Emma Stone, Dianna Agron, Hayden Panettiere, even Selena Gomez would be a better choice.
Tsar_Bomba1: I_C_Weener: [i586.photobucket.com image 500x694]Kristen Stewart and Steven Seagal should do a movie together...[www.bdoutdoors.com image 510x707]
The Stealth Hippopotamus: I can't believe she gets paid more than Blake Lively....
fusillade762: So how long before she ends up gets confused for a statue at Madame Tussauds?
Towall: I think she's purdy and will watch at least ten minutes of any movie she's in.
justtray: Just like to point out she only made the most money as an actress last year, not that she commands the highest rate per movie, which is what they are trying to insinuate.Distorting facts, how do they work?
thecpt: MoronLessOff: Babwa Wawa: Aside from Panic Room, I haven't seen a single one of her movies.Go watch Zathura. It's pretty good. Not for her though, her acting is pretty cold. Almost like her face is frozen in one expression.She was in that? I remember 2 kids, Dax Shepard (like waaaaay to much Dax), and not much else since it was a Jumanji rip off.
bruce4bruce: Well the studio didn't get her with an extended 6 movie contract like they did to many of the Avengers characters.She could ask for more money.

Mad_Radhu: I'm a little shocked that Jennifer Lawrence isn't higher on the list.There's not that many actresses that have successfully carried a $400 million grossing movie
VibroCount: She's a frowny okay looking girl whose lack of external emotion fits in with the imaginations of the teens who loved the books and want to relate to the on-screen Bella.
Mugato: Wellon Dowd: Lea Thompson's daughter, Zoey Deutch.I'd (it's late and I'm kind of drunk, insert your flux capacitor innuendo here).
Tat'dGreaser: Paycheck /= Good actor/actressGood for her though, she's laughing all the way to the bank.
Nem Wan: lifeform3: [www.futurama-area.de image 640x750]Always fun to look very closely and confirm it's not 76 copies of the first panel.
