The pair’s Middle Earth lovers, Aragorn and Arwen, helped director Peter Jackson rake in $2.9 billion at the worldwide box office — making them the top-earning Hollywood couple, according to a new Forbes magazine list of duos who have appeared in at least two films together in the last 20 years.
Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst‘s onscreen chemistry in the Spider-Man franchise pulled in $2.5 billion, while Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet‘s doomed relationships in 1997’s Titanic and Revolutionary Road in 2008 earned a combined $1.9 billion.
Pattinson and Stewart’s passionate relationship in the first two installments of the franchise has already grossed $1.1 billion — and two Twilight follow-ups have yet to hit theaters.
