Forbes’ Highest Earning Actresses
Forbes.com has released the top 5 highest earning actresses in Hollywood.
Although they are still earning less then our leading Hollywood men, these women are holding their own, ranking in a combined $226 million during the 2013 – 2014 year.
For the 5th spot on the list, we have a tie between Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie. Both actresses ranked in $18 million. That is a major step down from Jolie’s last year earnings that estimated around $33 million but since the release of Disney’s Maleficent, Angelina is sure to rise up on next years list. So should Cameron Diaz with her role as Miss Hannigan, in the upcoming remake of Annie that will be out later this year.
At number 4, Gwyneth Paltrow just takes the seat, earning an estimated $19 million. With the success of Iron Man 3 in 2013, it is no surprised that Paltrow makes the list. She also does advertising deals with Hugo Boss and Max Factor.
In 3rd, Jennifer Aniston earned $31 million with help from Friends and her endorsement with Aveeno. She has recently appeared in comedies such as We’re The Millers and Horrible Bosses and will soon be continuing the comedy route with Horrible Bosses 2.
One of Hollywood’s favorites and ranked sexiest woman alive from British Magazine FHM, Jennifer Lawrence made an estimated $34 million from the Hunger Games franchise and won an Academy Award for best actress in Silver Linings Playbook. She is ranked 12th in Forbes overall Celebrity 100 list and has won numerous awards with her recent films. It is safe to say that Lawrence isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.
And last but not least, America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock tops the list, earning $51 million with the blockbuster hit Gravity. The film itself has won 7 Academy Awards and Bullock herself won an Oscar for best actress with the 2009 film, the Blind Side.
