Follow the trail of hundred-dollar bills to Hollywood. A-list celebs can command tens of millions of dollars just for one role in one movie — and they also get paid to shill products for companies in the U.S. and abroad. On Wednesday, Sept. 11, the Hollywood Reporter released a list breaking down the salaries of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Beyonce , Robert Pattinson , and Angelina Jolie . PHOTOS: Beyonce’s bikini body Jay Z ‘s superstar wife reportedly makes $50 million just from her Pepsi contract, THR reports. Add that to her album sales, tour money, and other endorsement deals, and you’ll see why she was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world. Pattinson, meanwhile, is reportedly getting at least $12 million over three years from fashion house Dior to represent its Dior Homme fragrance. He and his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart also earned $20 million each for the final film in the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part 2. PHOTOS: The many faces of Robert Pattinson Other stars in the so-called $20 million club: Jolie, who could make that much if she signs on for Salt 2; Daniel Radcliffe and his Hogwarts buddies Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, who raked in $20 million each for the last Harry Potter installment; Denzel Washington, who made that amount for the movie 2 Guns; and Will Smith, though THR notes he took only half that for After Earth (which turned out to be one of the summer’s biggest box-office bombs). Skyfall actor Daniel Craig could join the club when he films the next James Bond thriller, THR reports. And Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson isn’t far behind the pack, either; he commands up to $15 million for action movies like Pain and Gain and Fast & Furious 6. PHOTOS: Hollywood bad boys The highest-paid actor, though, is Robert Downey Jr., who netted an estimated $50 million for Iron Man 3. According to THR, he is also getting $12 million over two years to promote mobile company HTC in Taiwan. As for other bankable female box-office stars?
Beyonce’s First Boyfriend Talks About Allegedly Cheating On Her

Well, Lyndall Locke says he is that guy. Locke recently spoke in an interview with British media about his relationship with Beyonce when she was an aspiring singer growing up in Houston. The two were allegedly childhood sweethearts who first met at a youth church in 1993. They supposedly shared their first kiss at a Brian McKnight concert and went to prom together in 1997. But when Beyonce’s star began to rise as part of Destiny’s Child, Locke said he began to wander. “The bigger star she became, the more I didnt think I was good enough,” he said in the sit-down, printed in British tabloid The Sun. “One night, when she was out of town, I went to a bar with friends and ended up sleeping with another woman. Over the course of a few years I cheated on her about five times, but I never told her until after we broke up.” Apparently, Beyonce had vowed to stay a virgin until marriage. Even though she and Locke were never intimate, he claims he “respected” her choice. Who cheats on a woman as beautiful as Beyonce? Well, I am that man and its something thatll always haunt me,” he said, adding, Once she began dating Jay Z I knew we were doomed and I could never win her back. But I know that no matter what, she will always love me.” While Locke can certainly dream, it’s doubtful the superstar singer has given their relationship much thought (if any at all). Back in 2008, she spoke to The Telegraph about how Jay Z was really the only man in her life.
