What $1 Million Buys in Hollywood

From Hilary Duff's engagement ring to Taylor Lautner's next project, we uncover Hollywood's price tags

Dr. Evil once held the world ransom for $1 million. Here's what that grand sum will buy you these days.

A piece of Taylor Lautner
Studios jumped into a bidding war for the script for Taylor Lautner's next project, a thriller titled Abduction. Ultimately Lionsgate clawed its way to victory, acquiring it for a cool mil. (A steal?)

The First Superman
For once, green was a good color for kryptonite-phobic Superman: An anonymous collector shelled out an unprecedented $1 million (three times the previous record) for a copy of Action Comics No. 1, the 1938 comic that marked the debut of the superhero.

Lizzie McGuire
Hockey player Mike Comrie popped the question to Hilary Duff with a chunk of ice worth an estimated $1 million.
