Angelina Jolie Is Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actress
Angelina Jolie might not have starred in a movie since 2010, but Forbes has still crowned her Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actress 2013.
Jolie, 38, took home $36 million ($US33 million) between June 2012 and June 2013, $14 million more than last year.
The mother of six has been focusing on directing and writing, most recently with her film In The Land of Blood and Honey in 2011, but next year we’ll see her in Maleficent, for which she earned $16.5 million. She has also signed on for Salt 2 and voicing Kung Fu Panda 3.
Next on the rich list is Jennifer Lawrence, who made $26 million last year.
While the 22-year-old was paid $1 million for The Hunger Games, she can thanks its huge box office earnings of $761 million which afforded her a pay rise for the second movie in the franchise, Catching Fire.
She should enjoy that franchise money because it doesn’t last, as Kristen Stewart knows too well. She topped the Highest Paid Actress list last year thanks to The Twilight Saga, banking $37 million, but this year, brought in $24 million.
Rounding out the top 10 is Jennifer Aniston with $22 million, Emma Stone at $17, Charlize Theron with $16 million, and Sandra Bullock and Natalie Portman both with a cool $15 million each. Mila Kunis entered the top 10 this year earning $12 million, and finally Julia Roberts, also pocketing $12 million.
