Angelina Jolie tops Jennifer Lawrence as highest-paid actress
Once again, Angelina Jolie is the reigning queen of the movie world, as Forbes has released their annual list of the highest-paid actresses. Angie fell to Kristen Stewart in 2012, due to the success of "Twilight" and "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Things are a bit different now, though. Jolie raked in $33 million between June 2012 and June 2013, due in part to a big paycheck for starring in Disney's "Maleficent," a live-action retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" that's set for release July 2, 2014.
Coming in behind Jolie is Jennifer Lawrence, who had a pretty good year herself, making $26 million. It surely helped that she got a raise for the next installments in the "Hunger Games." There's also "X-Men: Days of Future Past." It pays to be front and center in two different franchises.
Stewart drops to third with $22 million. With "Twilight" behind her and a sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" not happening just yet, Stewart may continue to slide down the list.
The Top 10 highest-paid actresses are below:
1. Angelina Jolie - $33 million
2. Jennifer Lawrence - $26 million
3. Kristen Stewart - $22 million
4. Jennifer Aniston - $20 million
5. Emma Stone - $16 million
6. Charlize Theron - $15 million
7. Sandra Bullock - $14 million
8. Natalie Portman - $14 million
9. Mila Kunis - $11 million
10. Julia Roberts - $11 million
