Sure, we all know the stars of the “Twilight” series: Kristin “goth hottie” Stewart, Robert “insane bone structure” Pattinson, Taylor “Native my American any day” Lautner. But it seems like we have forgotten the greatest star of all, who’s only getting the credit she deserves now. That is Melissa Rosenberg, writer of the trilogy movies, who was recently named the highest-grossing female screenwriter of all time.

This tribe member may be racking in the big bucks with her blockbuster hits, but the previous #1 female screenwriter, Linda Woolverton, is hot on her heels. Woolverton penned such Disney classics as “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Lion King,” and with the looming release of “Beauty and the Beast 3D,” Rosenberg’s crown could possibly be snatched.

While my heart will always be with the Disney classics, Rosenberg might deserve the bragging rights here. I mean, she made vampires super sexy. But Woolverton coined the classic “Hakuna Matata.” Hmm. This is a toss-up.

For the sake of healthy competition: Go Team Melissa!
