Forbes’ list of highest paid actresses

Forbes put out their list of the highest paid actresses for this year and though many are expected to be in the top 10, there are some newcomers who are making a lot more than the ladies we’ve been watching for years!

Angelina and Sarah Jessica Parker top the list, both making about $30 million a year. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon come next, making about $28 million.

Then comes the third place tie between a legend and a young lady! Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart are each making about $20 million this year.

It should be no shock after the success of Twilight, but check out the veterans who are only making half what Kristen makes:

  • $30 million- Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker
  • $28 million- Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon
  • $20 million- Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart
  • $19 million- Katherine Heigl
  • $18 million- Cameron Diaz
  • $15 million- Sandra Bullock
  • $10 million- Meryl Streep

Considering we found out people like Beyonce and Lady Gaga are making about $80 million, remind me to work on my singing skills before trying to make it in Hollywood, kthanks.
