Top Earning Actresses in Hollywood
Although the earnings of Hollywood stars depend on the success of film productions with their participation, for the last few years, the same American actresses are still in the rankings, exchanging places. Here are some of them!
For the first time on a movie set, the actress appeared at the age of 9, and just two years later she starred alongside Sean Connery. In 1996 Johansson starred in the film “The Horse Whisperer”, and the world fame brought her such productions as “Between the Words” (2003), “The Island” (2005) and “All Is Well” (2005).
The role of the Black Widow – Natasha Romanoff only strengthened the success and financial position of the actress. For “Avengers” Scarlett received … 56 million dollars. In August, the Hollywood star became a mother, but she has already announced her return to the big screen. Together with Chris Evans, the actress will star in Dexter Fletcher’s new film “Ghosted”.
Jolie gained critical acclaim with the movie “George Wallace”, and the world fame brought her the role of Lara Croft in 2001. The movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” was also a stunning success, and the marriage of its main characters, Brad Pitt and Jolie, turned into a viable relationship. However, recent years are not the happiest for the couple. Much of their time has been taken away from their disputes surrounding their divorce case and custody of their six children
For playing the title role in the second part of “The Witch” Angelina Jolie received a nice fee – 28 million dollars. Much worse was the last film with Jolie entitled “Those Who Wish Me Dead”. The production earned only $2.8 million.
Jennifer Aniston’s parents were also actors, but financially much better off is their daughter, who is still receiving millions for her role in “Friends”. And yet she was one step away from retiring from acting! In 1990, Aniston went to Hollywood and played only insignificant roles. After 4 years, she doubted her talent and unwillingly, as a farewell, she took part in the casting for the series. As we know, the role of Rachel Green brought her recognition and big money, Golden Globe and Emmy
In 2002, Aniston starred in the film “Bruce Almighty”, and in 2008 in the production “Marley and I”. Although the Hollywood star is appreciated mainly for her roles in comedies, she was also in the cast of several “more serious” films, such as “Yellowbirds” and “Killer Cruise”.
In 1990 the film “Pretty Woman”, in which Roberts played the role of a prostitute Vivian, was released on the big screens. The incredible love story about the new “Cinderella” and her savior brought Roberts to the top of the Hollywood box office ratings. Then came the time of more serious roles for her – let’s mention the production based on the biography of Erin Brockovich, the film “Dying Too Soon” or “Ben’s Return”
For her latest role in the film production “Leave The World Behind” the Hollywood star received a fee of 25 million dollars.
Jennifer Lawrence is worth mentioning if only because of the age at which this Hollywood actress began to reach for laurels. In 2012, at the age of 22, Jennifer got an Oscar nomination for the leading female role in the film “Guide to Positive Thinking”. For her participation in the latest production “Don’t Look Up”, in which she stars alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, the young actress received $25 million.
