What do Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone and Mila Kunis have in common?

They're young. They're hot and they're cheap, at least according to Forbes' list of "best actors for the buck."

Forbes calculated how much on average stars earned at the box office per dollar of pay. Emma Stone, 25, topped Forbes' list, helping studios receive $80.70 for every $1 she was paid for her last three movies.

Returns $80.70 for every $1 paid
