According to Forbes, Mac Daddies of Money Makin’, Hollywood’s highest-paid actress is Angelina Jolie. They make a point of noting that she hasn’t done any blockbusters recently, but because she’s never left the public eye (qv. adoption, mastectomy, etc.) her paychecks stay fat. Woah woah woah, is Forbes implying that there isn’t a direct correlation between talent and income?! Anyway, here’s their top five:

1. Jolie – $33 million

2. Jennifer Lawrence – $24 million

3. Kristen Stewart – $22 million

4. Jennifer Aniston – $20 million

5. Emma Stone – $16 million [when reached for a comment had this to say]

Jeez Jennifer Aniston will you cut it out? Must be all that money she’s saving with McDonald’s that keeps her relevant. Also, for your shameful pleasure I’ve put the Highest-Paid Actress in the context of the Highest-Paid Actors:

1. Robert Downey Jr. – $75 million

2. C-Tates – $60 million (all in ones)

3. Hugh Jackman – $55 million

4. Mark Wahlberg – $52 million

5. Dwayne Johnson – $46 million

6. Leonardo DiCaprio – $39 million

7. Adam Sandler – $37 million

8. Tom Cruise – $35 million

9. Denzel Washington – $33 million / Angelina Jolia – $33 million

10. Liam Neeson – $32 million

Who knows where the other women fall (hopefully somewhere above Taylor Lautner, but I have no faith at this point).
