Angelina Jolie hasn’t appeared on-screen since “The Tourist” in 2010, but that certainly doesn’t mean her star power is fading.
“Forbes” released their list of actresses with the biggest Hollywood salaries, and Jolie topped the list, earning an estimated $33 million over the past year, in part because of her starring role in Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” reboot “Maleficent.”
Following closely behind is Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (“The Hunger Games,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) with roughly $24 million and Kristen Stewart earning her last “Twilight” paycheck for a total of $22 million.
Rounding out the top 10 are:
However, the actresses’ salaries are somewhat dwarfed by “Forbes”’ highest-paid actors, with “The Avengers” star Robert Downey Jr. earning a reported $75 million. By comparison, at the bottom of the men’s list was Liam Neeson with $32 million, nearly tying Jolie, the top-earning female star.
