Angelina Jolie 2

As a sequel to our recent publication on the world’s highest paid actors, (Click here to see it) justrichest.com brings you the top 18 highest-paid actresses in the world with evaluation from June 2014 to June 2015. The list could’ve almost as well been named the highest paid American actresses because unlike the male version which included 5 Bollywood/Asian stars, the female version is 99% dominated by Hollywood sweethearts with the missing percent being Asian actress and pop singer Bingbing Fan who made the list at 4th place. Though the figures earned by the world’s highest-paid actresses are no chicken feed, they are far less, compared to what their male counterparts earn. Robert Downey who holds the title for the world’s highest paid actor banked an incredible $80 million, which is $28 million higher than the $52 million earned by the world’s highest-paid actress, Jennifer Lawrence. Guess we won’t be wrong to tag the movie industry a “man’s world”. Here are the 18 leading women in the movie industry beginning with the least paid…

18. Natalie Portman

Earnings: $6 million

While she receives her paycheck from the movie “Thor: The Dark World”, modelling for Dior’s fragrances adds to her earnings. Her first directed movie “A Tale of Love and Darkness”, an adaptation from the Amos Oz’s book was released in May, 2015. Together with Christian Bale, she will be staring in Terrence Malick directed films “Weightless” and “Knight of Cups” both to be released in 2016.

17. Mila Kunis

Earnings: $6.5 million

Though her 2015 movie “Jupiter ascending” did badly at the box office, she was still well compensated for her acting role. The Gemfields jewelry ambassador has been the voice of Meg Griffin in the animated series “Family Guy” since 1999.

16. Emma Stone

Earnings: $6.5 million

Her 2015 romantic-comedy “Aloha” was a huge box office bomb, but her upfront paycheck and highly lucrative endorsement with Revlon were enough to save her a space on the list. To make things brighter, Emma received critical acclamation for her roles in “Birdman” which grossed $103.2 million

15. Sandra Bullock

Earnings: $8 million

Her 2013 movie “Gravity” earned her a paycheck of $51 million making her last year’s highest paid actress, but due to her inactivity in the past year, her paycheck dropped to $8 million. Hopefully, the veteran actress will bounce back as she stars in upcoming “Our Brand is Crisis”, a movie about political strategies in South America produced by George Clooney. The Oscar winner voiced Scarlett Overkill in the hit animation, “Minions”.

14. Amanda Seyfried

Earnings: $8 million

Amanda owes her first ever appearance on the highest-paid actresses list to her roles in “Ted 2” and “Pan” including endorsement deals with Clé de Peau Beauté and “Givenchy”.

13. Meryl Streep

Earnings: $8 million

2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala - Inside Arrivals

The most nominated actress/actor of all time got this year’s paycheck for her role in “In the Woods”. The movie received indifferent reviews from critics, but thanks to her faithful fans who trooped into cinemas to see it, the movie on a $50 million budget grossed a massive $172 million.

12. Gwyneth Paltrow

Earnings: $9 million

Gwyneth had it rough this year relationship-wise, splitting from her 12-year marriage to Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin but money-wise it was all smiles. The Goop writer’s $9 million earnings didn’t come as paychecks for acting roles but rather from lucrative endorsement deals with Hugo Boss and Max Factor.

11. Cameron Diaz

Earnings: $11 million

"The Other Woman" - UK Gala Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

If it wasn’t for her steady compensation for roles in “Annie” and “The Other Woman”, including a lucrative deal with Swiss manufacturing company Tag Heuer, Cameron would have been found wanting on the list as her 2014 “Sex Tape” movie was a massive flop.

10. Kristen Stewart

Earnings: $12 million

Kristen Stewart

The Twilight star is determined to convince fans and critics to believe she is more than a “Bella Swan” kinda girl. She’s doing via roles in recent movies such as “Still Alice”, “The Clouds of Sils Maria”, “American Ultra” and “Equals”. The Chanel and Balenciaga model is currently filming an untitled Woody Allen film to be released in 2016.
