Angelina Jolie has topped Forbes’ 2013 list for the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, beating out Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart.
Angelina, who is currently helping husband Brad Pitt promote his new film World War Z (the duo looked especially adorable on the red carpet in Tokyo on Monday night), has come in at the top of Forbes’ 2013 list of Highest Paid Actresses in Hollywood, with estimated earnings of $33million between June 2012 and June 2013.
‘Hollywood hasn’t shied away from Jolie. She’s still one of the few actresses who can demand a paycheck north of $15 million for the right movie – like Disney’s retelling of the old Sleeping Beauty story, Maleficent,’ writes Dorothy Pomerantz on Forbes.com.
According to Forbes, Jolie’s earnings are $13million more than last year and $7million ahead of the second highest-paid actress on the list, Jennifer Lawrence, who most recently took home the Best Actress Oscar for her work in Silver Linings Playbook and who pulled in a hefty reported $26million last year.
Kristen Stewart – who topped last year’s highest-paid actress list – came in third place with earnings of $22million, followed by Jennifer Aniston with $20million and Emma Stone rounding out the top five with a reported $16million.
Charlize Theron, Sandra Bullock, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Julia Roberts also came in the top 10.
According to Forbes, the list was compiled by consulting with agents, managers and industry insiders, and the publication didn’t ‘deduct for taxes, agent fees or any of the other costs of being a celebrity.’
Well done, Angelina! (P.S. We’re insanely jealous).
