It was minor players in the Twilight franchise like Ashley Green and Kellan Lutz who held up progress on Breaking Dawn by demanding higher salaries, but the three major players in the saga will be the ones taking home the biggest paydays. Vulture has learned that Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will each earn $25 million for appearing in the two Breaking Dawn films, which amounts to about $12.5 million for each emotion the actors are capable of expressing in the films.

And that's before the actual gross of the movies are factored in. The stars are earning the $25 million against 7.5% of the theatrical gross for both films, which Vulture estimates could net them an extra $16 million based on how well the first three films have done. Yes, it's a mind-boggling number. No, I don't really know how the rest of us are supposed to go about our days after this. But there you have it. Happy Independence Day, fellow poor plebes.
