These girls are doing it for themselves!
A list of the top ten earning Hollywood actresses has been released and it comes as no surprise that Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence tops the list – raking in an impressive $52 million last financial year.
Second place is Scarlett Johansson after her appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, cashing in on $35.5 million.
While funny woman Melissa McCarthy takes home bronze with $23 million dollars.
The full list is as follows:
10. Kristen Stewart – $12 million
9. Anne Hathaway – $12.5 million
8. Reece Witherspoon – $15 million
7. Angelina Jolie – $15.5 million
6. Julia Roberts – $16 million
5. Jennifer Aniston – $16.5 million
4. Fan Bing Bing – $21 million
3. Melissa McCarthy – $23 million
2. Scarlett Johannson – $35.5 million
1. Jennifer Lawrence – $52 million
Their combined earnings of $219 million falls just shy of the top ten female earners last year ($226 million).
Meanwhile four of last year’s top 10 did not make the cut this financial year – Gwenyth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Amy Adams and Natalie Portman.
The girls still are earning a hefty amount less than their male counterparts – the top ten males brought in a combined $431 million.
Further, 21 male actors earned more than $20 million in the financial year in comparison to only four females.
