Selena Gomez is Disney's Top-Earning Television Star

Wizards Of Waverly Place - Fashion Show Arrivals

It's no secret that Miley Cyrus is worth a billion, but many of you probably don't realize that she isn't Disney Channel's highest-paid actress. Most of her money comes from her music and the "Hannah Montana" franchise, but not her per-episode salary from the series. Selena Gomez makes more than Miley on "Wizards of Waverly Place", according to new reports. Hell, even the Sprouse twins make more than her! Here is a complete list of the highest-paid child actors on television and their per-episode salaries:
  1. Angus T. Jone (16, "Two and a Half Men) - $250,000
  2. Miranda Cosgrove (16, "iCarly") - $180,000
  3. Selena Gomez (17, "Wizards of Waverly Place") - $25,000
  4. Dylan and Cole Sprouse (17, "The Suite Life on Deck") - $20,000 each
  5. Keke Palmer (16, "True Jackson") - $20,000
  6. Miley Cyrus (17, "Hannah Montana") - $15,000
  7. Rico Rodriguez (11, "Modern Family") - $15,000
  8. Demi Lovato (17, "Sonny With a Chance") - $12,000
  9. Victoria Justice (17, "Victorious") - $12,000
  10. Atticus Shaffer (11, "The Middle") - $12,000
And, for an added fun fact: Ashley Tisdale only made about $9,000 per episode while on "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" while the Sprouse twins earned $12,000 - $15,000 each. Not cool!

How is Miranda Cosgrove getting paid so much? We knew her show was successful, but it certainly hasn't earned as much attention as Disney's shows.
