Having just recently presented the list of highest paid top models, the Forbes magazine has decided to continue the theme of successful women, this time in the motion picture industry. And now we are offered a top ten of Hollywood actresses having the highest fees.
The youngest actress in the list, the 22-year-old Kristen Stewart became the leader of the rating. Despite the fact that she earned no less than her colleagues Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner for the “Twilight” saga, the earnings from the film “Snow White and the Hunter” made a significant contribution to Stewart’s treasury. Over the past year, the actress became 34.5 million dollars richer.
Just “some” 500,000 dollars separate Cameron Diaz from the leader of the list Kristen Stewart. The comedy “Bad Teacher” shot in 2011 with the participation of Diaz had a budget of 20 million dollars, but it has collected 216! It helped the actress earn 34 million dollars last year.
The third place goes to Sandra Bullock. Despite the fact that her new film “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” could not beat the box-office record, the actress managed to earn $25 million.
Angelina Jolie got the fourth line of the ranking, adding to the family budget another 20 million dollars. Despite the fact that the actress did not have high-profile roles over the past year, she consistently attracted the attention of the media and the public. Their engagement with Brad Pitt really made a stir! During the last 12 months, Jolie managed to appear on 78 covers of various magazines. That is a record! And now the actress is busy filming a new film adaptation of the tale of “Sleeping Beauty”, and just a few days ago we were able to evaluate her new image of an evil queen.
The fifth place is taken by Charlize Theron. Having starred in two blockbusters “Prometheus” and “Snow White and the Hunter” as well as in the melodrama “Poor Rich Girl”, the actress has earned a total of 18 million dollars. In addition, she receives a considerable sum of money from the Dior company, being its face for many years.
Julia Roberts goes next. Their joint work with Tom Hanks in “Larry Crowne” has collected 52 million at the box offices, but the fairy tale “Snow White: Revenge of the Dwarfs” brought 135 million dollars (although the picture “failed” in the USA). Roberts and her 16 million occupy the sixth place in the ranking.
Sarah Jessica Parker
The seventh place is taken by Sarah Jessica Parker. Her picture “I Do Not Know How She Does It” failed miserably in the U.S., but she continues to receive good dividends from showing her hit series “Sex and the City” on TV. In addition, her fragrances NYC and Lovely are very successful. And so, there are 15 million dollars more on Parker’s bank account.
The eighth line belongs to Meryl Streep. The actress was nominated for various awards the largest number of times in the history of cinema. This year, Streep has taken the third “Oscar” in her career for the film “Iron Lady”, which eventually brought her 12 million dollars.
Having earned popularity due to filming the show Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig co-starred in the film “Bachelorette Party in Vegas”, which “blew up” the American theaters. The comedy about the vicissitudes of bridesmaids’ life collected 288 million dollars, and has expanded Wiig’s fortune for 12 million dollars.
The top ten ends with Jennifer Aniston. The comedies with her participation “Just Go With It,” “Horrible Bosses,” “Wanderlust” have helped the actress to earn 11 million dollars, and her romance with Justin Theroux is still discussed on the pages of glossy magazines.
