Andrew Cooper© 2011 Summit Entertainment, LLC(NEW YORK) — Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s relationship has proven to be a profitable one.  They top a new Forbes list of Hollywood’s highest-grossing romantic couples.

Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum rank second on the list, with their 2012 film The Vow having earned $125 million.

Tatum also appears further down the list at number six, with his Dear John co-star, Amanda Seyfried.

Pattinson is joined by Reese Witherspoon in the 10th spot, thanks to their collaboration on the 2011 drama Water for Elephants.
