Jennifer Lawrence: Bonus for 'Hunger Games' Success?

Jennifer Lawrence attends a fan event for The Hunger Games at Capitol Cinema on Monday (March 26) in Madrid, Spain.

The 21-year-old actress wore a Victoria Beckham dress with Brian Atwood‘s “Dasha” booties.

Jennifer will reportedly be getting a payday bump after the movie’s record-breaking opening this past weekend.

“She stands to bring in more than $1 million by the time the film finishes its theatrical run and can expect greater rewards going forward,” according to THR, which adds that she was initially paid $500,000 to star as Katniss.

    Don’t like the dress, but her face is perfect here^^

  • Sara

    I like her as person she is a sweet girl and can actualy ACT
    I approve of her getiing rich and famous …i hope she spendes it wisely though

  • Alaia

    Now that she stinkin’ rich, I hope she’ll still make independent movies and balance it out.

  • sweetness

    A million dollars sounds very nice but the studio is disgusting to be raking in fist full of millions and paying her peanuts by comparison.

  • Amanda

    Hope she gets a salary increase for the next one. If not, she needs a better agent.

  • tom

    She will make the big bucks with the two sequels.

  • Jessica Rabbit

    Well, she certainly deserves it! I hope her agents can renegotiate a better deal for the two sequels – given the fact that what she was paid and the subsequent bonus is a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of what the studio is raking in. The million dollars is not even .5% of what the movie made in two days over the weekend, and that’s in the US alone! She certainly deserves a bigger paycheck, something along the lines of $10 million and upwards. The Twilight kids aren’t better than her! YAY for her though! She can now go and jump into a big pool of pasta – like she has always dreamed of!

  • kami

    i hope all the main cast will get bonuses. she didn’t make the movie by herself. and hope they all will get more for the next movie. can’t let the studio take in all the money.

  • Amanda

    That is really fantastic. Talk about good karma. I’m happy for her. <3

  • Whatever

    That’s disgusting to think what the studio is making on this, and that her take at the most will be 1.5 million. She is an Oscar nominated actress, not some twinkie actress pulled off the street. SHAME ON THEM. She’s a wonderful actress, and she deserved more from the start!

  • Really

    Unless she has a really bad agent I double her bonus will be that low…

  • Really

    Unless she has a really bad agent I doubt her bonus will be that low…

  • aunatural

    If she get bonus from THG success; she mighty deserves it. As she delivers so well both in critics & box-office of the said movie. UNlike the cast of that TWATlight movie.

  • A

    Sorry but half a million for the movie doesn’t seem like a very big payday. I would have thought she’d get at least 1 million to start in it to begin with.

    Guess actors don’t make as much money as we think they do.

  • Jennica Panettiere

    Didn’t Kellan Lutz and some other chick from Twilight get paid $3 million for their bit part roles? Jennifer getting $500,000 pales in comparison. She is definitely underpaid by Hollywood standards.

  • jenfan

    @A: thats what Kristen made for the first twilight..they were just testing out..and trust me actors get lots of money..kristen is getting like 20 mil or so for twilight now…Jen will get her big payday

  • Ana

    Congrats to her! She will make plenty on the sequels.

  • ColinG

    Ugly dress, beautiful woman

  • BrandonHilton

    I’m here to troll and promote myself. Help me get famous! I’ve been trying since Myspace was big. I really don’t want to have to go work at Target. While you’re at it, look me up on Urban Dictionary it’s really fun :)

  • A

    @jenfan: I hope she does. Don’t get me wrong, 500,000 is a LOT of money. But for an actor in a big movie like the hunger games that really isn’t a lot. I hope she gets paid like the Twilight actors have.

  • Carla

    She deserves it all. Seriously perfect Katniss right here. :) Such a beauty too!

  • jo

    beautiful eye makeup, but what an UGLY dress.

  • Tara

    Such a beautiful girl,a and perfect dress for her! Love it.

  • Nelly

    She will get a pay raise if they choose to split mockingjay. She has the leverage to walk away from the movie in that case while she is locked in for the first three, like josh and liam. I wonder if she will act like the twilight trio and insist on having all three be paid the same or they would all walk away, like kristen and rob did for taylor. Or is the threesome just for show? Will she act like daniel and take home double the earnings of his two costars?

  • Name

    The hunger games is more successful than twilight. They have a bigger mix if fans. They should be paid more than the twilight trio. It should be like harry potter. They should invest more money into the production line wb did for hp.

  • Hey

    For five and six, dan actually made $25 million each while rupert and emma made $4 million each. That’s actually six times their earning. Total is $33 million. For eclipse, kstew, rpattz and taylor were paid around $10 million each. That’s $30 million between the three. No matter how horrible the franchise may be, at least we see the stars have some heart and sense of fairness especially when they’re promoted as a trio by the media.

  • Ravioli

    Com’on, I’m sure there are 20,000 other actresses in Hollywood who would jump at the Katniss role. Now that she’s more established, she’ll be able to command bigger paycheques.

    However, it IS a bit surprising that she only got paid 500K. Guess box office success is more important than an oscar nomination when it comes to getting a fat payday. Or maybe they weren’t sure if the HG would be a big fat flop like John Carter.

  • anon

    For those thinking, “she needs to negotiate a better deal for the next film”. Well, duh. She wont have to. The fact that they would make a sequel means that they will have no choice but to SUBSTANTIALLY increase her next contract. She is the central character and with this success she becomes “A” list. The producers are probably going to over pay her to insure the money cart that is “The Hunger Games” continues to run smoothly and insure their lead actor isn’t “unavailable due to project conflicts”.
