Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston were battling this year for the title of the highest paying actress in Hollywood, and Sandra Bullock won this prestige race.


A number of agents, producers, lawyers and other industry insiders were interviewed in the survey to determine just how much have top celebrities earned from June 2013 up until today. This is what they found.

Sandra Bullock easily takes the first place on Forbes’ Highest Earning Actress in Hollywood list with staggering $51 million.

The 50-year-old star may have lost Best Actress award, but her blockbuster “Gravity” won seven Oscars.

What about the others?

Jennifer Lawrence took the runner up position with $34 million. The 23-year-old actress nailed her part in “American Hustle” and she has also revisited her roles as Katniss Everdeen and Mystique in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

The second sequel of “The Hunger Games” franchise earned more than $424 million on a $140 million budget, while the “X-Men” sequel made $231.7 million on a $200 million budget. Not bad at all.

Jennifer Aniston refreshed her bank account with $31 million, due to the surprisingly huge success of the comedy movie “We’re the Millers” and due to receiving royalties from the reruns of “Friends.”

Gwyneth Paltrow also took her place on the list with $19 million, and she has to thank her supporting role in the blockbuster “Iron Man 3” for that.

The 41-year-old actress also earned a lot by being a paid spokesperson for Max Factor and Hugo Boss.

Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz share the fifth place.

Gender equality?

The numbers you’ve just seen are quite impressive, however, women are still paid less than men in Hollywood.

According to the Forbes’ lists, top earning actors brought in a combined $419 million, while the magazine’s top earning actresses brought in only $226 million.
