Now that everyone who saw and enjoyed A Cinderella Story and Sydney White has graduated from high school and moved on to the next stage of their movie viewing habits, it's time for Hollywood to start churning out a new generation of updated fairy tale movies for a fresh crop of kids who haven't seen enough to know any better. Would it be nice if they made something more original or even slightly more sophisticated than Beastly is? Of course, but why put in all that effort? Judging from the success of The Twilight Saga, it's not like the target audience who wants this would care much either way.
Forbes has come out with its list of "Hollywood's Top-Paid Tweens", and most of the stars who made it are no longer pre-teens themselves. But, as Forbes notes, "the bulk of their work still caters to that advertiser-beloved tween set." Tied for the top spot with a mind-blowing $25 million each are Hannah Montana's fifteen-year-old Miley Cyrus and Harry Potter's nineteen-year-old Daniel Radcliffe.
