Real-life lovers Robert Pattinson and  Kristen Stewart have been named Hollywood’s highest-grossing  onscreen couple by bosses at Forbes magazine.

Editors at the publication have determined Pattinson and Stewart  are the hottest duo after raking in $US625 million ($NZ747m) for the Twilight franchise.

Channing Tatum and his The Vow co-star Rachel McAdams, who  brought in $US125 million ($NZ149m) come in second.

The top two leading men landed on the list twice — Pattinson and  Reese Witherspoon won over viewers in Water for Elephants, while  People magazine’s current Sexiest Man Alive Tatum’s movie romance  with Amanda Seyfried in Dear John put them sixth.

Also making the top 10 were Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, who  met and fell in love while filming The Last Song, and Zac Efron and  Taylor Schilling, whose steamy love scenes in The Lucky One earned  them a spot at number nine.Forbes editors compiled the list using the top money-making  romantic movies over the past three years.
