Forbes has released the list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. They gathered numbers from May 2011 to May 2012, and includes the top 10 actresses who are receiving the biggest and fattest paychecks.
The list includes Cameron Diaz, Kristen Wiig, Meryl Streep and a whole lot more. Check it out after the break!
10. Jennifer Aniston - $11 million
Aniston earned some of the best reviews of her career for her surprising turn in last summer's "Horrible Bosses" but not so much with the disappointing "Wanderlust." But as for her paychecks, with money from "Friends" repeats, she well in the black.
9. Kristen Wiig - $12 million
Bridesmaids earned $288 million on a $32 million budget. So go figure!
8. Meryl Streep - $12 million
The reigning Oscar winner continues to average a film a year, but she doesn't come cheap though.
7. Sarah Jessica Parker - $15 million
I really don't know how she does it, but she does. She still makes a bank from Sex and the City reruns, product endorsements and her line of perfumes.
6. Julia Roberts - $16 million
While she might not be in many movies already, it doesn't mean that her paychecks are any less lower. Julia Roberts was in Larry Crowne and Mirror Mirror last year, which earned $135 million at the box office.
5. Charlize Theron - $18 million
Making a return to the silverscreen, Theron was at last year's "Young Adult" and had two summer hits recently "Snow White and the Hunstman" and "Prometheus".
4. Angelina Jolie - $20 million
She was in the Tourist in 2010, and Kung Fu Panda 2, and still has a lot more product endorsements too. She's currently filming Disney's live action movie "Maleficent".
3. Sandra Bullock - $25 million
Sandra Bullock hasn't acted much, but she does command a whole lot of money and has made quite a ton herself too. Her role next is in Alfonso Cuaron's science fiction movie Gravity.
Cameron Diaz - $34 million
Being funny pays off it seems. Cameron Diaz's Bad Teacher made $216 million on a budget of $20 million, and she received a portion of the profits in addition to an upfront salary. She was also in "The Green Hornet" and "What to Expect when You're Expecting".
Kristen Stewart - $34.5 million
Twilight trilogy, Snow White and the Huntsman, and possibly more to go in the future. Forbes reports her earning at $12.5 million each for the final two films, plus a share of the profits, and she's got Snow White and the Huntsman to add to her ever growing big fat bank account now.
