Attention all celebrities and celebrity couples: If you want to make it in Hollywood, and we mean really make it, don't just settle for a romantic comedy. Go YA.

The YA saga phenom of the past few years, "Twilight," made its two stars -- Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson -- Hollywood's highest-grossing romantic on-screen couple, according to Forbes.

Forbes looked at the top-grossing romantic movies of the last three years, in which time "Twilight" earned a whopping $1.17 billion (domestically; internationally the franchise grossed $3.3 billion.) The fact that Robsten took their affair off-screen, the whole cheating scandal that made headlines for months and the on-again, off-again steadiness of their relationship surely didn't hurt.

In explaining their method of calculation, Forbes said they "looked at the top-grossing romantic movies as classified by Box Office Mojo over the past three years and added up each couple’s total U.S.box office."

Right behind our fave pair of vampires come People's Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum and his co-star Rachel McAdams in "The Vow" with $125 million, and Jennifer Aniston's "Just Go With It" with Adam Sandler rounds off the top three with $103 million.

For the rest of the top 10 couples, including RPaz's second cameo on the list as well as Tatum's, and to see which other celebrity high-grossing couple took their love off-screen, check out Forbes' list here.
