Top 10 Highest Paid Actresses of 2015

The world of film is filmed with many brilliant actors and actresses who bring an infinite variety of emotions through their art, and some receive their true due amount, which can be seen below. Who are the highest paid actresses as of 2015?

10. Kristen Stewart
$12 million

Kristen Stewart first rose to fame with her role in the Twilight saga as Bella, and has finally been able to break free from the perception of forever being only able to play one character that some actors/actresses suffer after having a role for years; she was recently in Still Alice (2014) and Clouds of Sils Maria (2014), both critically acclaimed films.

9. Anne Hathaway
$12 million

Anne Hathaway’s first most critical role was that of a teenage princess in the Princess Diaries films. Soon after, she appeared in The Devil Wears Prada (2006), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and Interstellar (2014) among many others. She’s also got great pipes, which she showcased in both Rio (2011) and its sequel, as well as in Les Misérables.

8. Reese Witherspoon
$15 million

Reese Witherspoon recently starred in Wild (2014), a very well received movie, and which made her some millions.

7. Angelina Jolie
$15 million

Angelina Jolie’s consistently been a part of many film productions each year, and this time around, she did quite well with Maleficent (2014) and will be appearing in a sequel.

6. Julia Roberts
$16 million

Julia Roberts may not have done any recent films lately, but her deals with Givenchy, Lancome, and Calzedonia really did make her quite a lot of money

5. Jennifer Aniston
$16.5 million

She’ll always be lovingly remembered as Rachel Green on Friends (1994-2004). And this past year, the bulk of her income came from her deals with SmartWater, Aveeno, as well as Living Proof, and has been in two movies recently — Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) and Cake (2015).

4. Bingbing Fan
$21 million

Fan Bingbing’s quite lucrative deal with L’Oreal has really got her rolling in dough, not to mention the projects she’s also involved back in China. In the West, we best know her Blink in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).

3. Melissa McCarthy
$23 million

Melissa McCarthy recently opened her own plus sized fashion line and has earned quite a lot, adding up her income from her roles in both Spy (2015) and Tammy (2014).

2. Scarlett Johansson
$35.5 million

Playing the only hot female badass Avenger so far, Scarlett Johansson earned a great amount from said Black Widow role.

1. Jennifer Lawrence
$52 million

She’ll most likely be forever immortalized as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies, which may or may not be a bad thing. Anyhow, she may have earned less than her guy counterparts in the movie, but this is still a pretty big sum.

Women are gaining leeway in equal pay, it seems. Doesn’t hurt that most of them also look pretty amazing.
