All Taylor Lautner‘s work in the gym has paid off — the Twilight star is now more than just the teenage actor with the most defined abs, he also has the biggest paycheck.

The 17-year-old is getting $7.5 million for his next flick, Northern Lights, starring Tom Cruise, claims movie insider Nikke Finke in her Deadline Hollywood blog.

The movie, which starts filming on April 1 centers around “a gifted, young, aerobatics pilot who faces off with his controlling, billionaire father and falls in love with a gifted, female pilot.”

Neither Zac Efron nor Miley Cyrus can command such a high salary, claims Finke.
