Actress Chloe Grace Moretz is just 17-years-old, but she’s already commanding nearly half a million dollars per film.
Moretz, who started acting when she was 7 years old, rose to fame starring in the “Kick-Arse” franchise and won critical acclaim for her recent role in Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo.”
And depending on how well the film does at the box office, she could also earn a lot more.
TMZ was able to obtain a copy of Moretz’s contract because it has to be filed with the courts since she is still a minor.
In the docs, it is revealed that Moretz will get an additional $US150,000 if the movie earns $US100 million domestically in the U.S. and Canada.
And she’s almost there!
While “The Equaliser” opened in theatres September 26th, it’s already raked in over $US82 million domestically. Since the film will still be playing in most theatres this weekend, there’s a solid chance it will hit the $US100 million mark in the next few weeks.
The film has earned more overseas, bringing it’s grand total to over $US139 million on a $US55 million production budget.
Moretz’s $US550,000 payday is on par, if not better than, popular actresses in a similar age range.
Shailene Woodley, 22, earned just $US250,000 to $US500,000 for the first instalment of “Divergent,” according The Hollywood Reporter sources.
For the first “Hunger Games,” 24-year-old Jennifer Lawrence received $US500,000 upfront (plus bonuses based on box office performance), but reportedly negotiated a $US10 million deal for the second instalment “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
