10 Top Paid Hollywood Actresses

Sunday, February 26, 2012

To figure out earnings, I added the pay on movies they are currently shooting, as well as back-end pay earned after a movie hit the theaters. I also looked at any money actresses might have earned through their perfume or clothing lines. As is still typical for Hollywood, actresses earn significantly less than their male counterparts.

Here I have compiled the 10 top paid Hollywood actresses. I hope you will like it.
Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie takes about $27 million per movie. Last year’s Wanted is a most successful movie earned a $341 million at the worldwide box office. She’s getting a big upfront paycheck for her next film, Salt, about a disgraced CIA agent.
Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston takes $25 million per movie. Last year’s Marley & Me, which earned $244 million at the worldwide box office.
Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep takes $24 million per movie. Last summer, Box Office hit Mamma Mia draw audiences as well as awards with $603 million at the worldwide box office.

Nicole Kidman
