Reese Takes Nicole's Crown as Top-Earning Actress

As 2008 inches closer, the celebrity lists of 2007 just keep on coming. The numbers are in and Reese Witherspoon was the top earning actress of the past year, with Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz right behind her. Nicole Kidman dropped from #1 down to #4 and Renée Zellweger rounded out the top five, dropping two spots from last year. Reese's latest movie Rendition wasn't exactly a blockbuster, but she's still raking in a huge $15–$20 million per film. Looks like this was a great year for Reese in both her career and her personal life.

To see what other ladies made the list just

1. Reese Witherspoon
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Cameron Diaz
4. Nicole Kidman
5. Renée Zellweger
6. Sandra Bullock
7. Julia Roberts
8. Drew Barrymore
9. Jodie Foster
10. Halle Berry

Reese should be paid more. Nicole is old and going down hill in her work.

uh what are you people talking about? A few of you said what is Jodie doing there? Uh Jodie foster should be number one. she's the only actress that can open a movie number one every time. She just doesn't work that much anymore. But Panic Room Flightplan inside Man grossed big because of her name. The Brave One got terrible reviews and still opened number one. These other actresses like Reeese Witherspoon Halle Berry and especially overpaid Nicole Kidman can't have that power. Jodie rocks. The other actresses on this list i don't care for. The likes of Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet are so talented but just not box office draws. Foster however is a talented two time Oscar winner and continues to be a top draw in her 40s.

Nobody should be paid that much for a movie. Its crazy. I love Julia and Reese, and Sandra. I don't like Nicole at all.

When Julia makes big budget movies she gets between 20 and 25 million a movie. Julia is the ONLY one on this list who has ACTUALLY gotten 25 million for one movie. I don't understand this list.

HOW ON EARTH is Renee on this list??? Blech! I have no idea how she made it in Hollywood-----sooooooo not worth any of that $! I don't think Cameron Diaz is talented either..don't understand her on the list..but Renee def makes the least sense of all! I also agree about Jodie Foster..how is she on this list? Tell me how their jobs make more money than people who actually do IMPORTANT work...doctors, teachers, nurses, etccccccccc! Seems pretty backward to me!!!

One woman of color or race other than caucasian and she's at the end of the list. And one of the only oscar winners too, besides Julia who is talent free.

While Reese is a sweet girl and a talented actress, and I'm a fan of 3 of the 5 pictured (BARF to Diaz and Zellweger), none of these women "deserves" $20 million.
