Forbes Top 10 Top-Earning Actresses in Hollywood

Are You Surprised by the Top 10 Earning Actresses in Hollywood?

Forbes released its annual Top-Earning Hollywood Actresses list based on the salaries they acquired from June 2008 to June 2009. Angelina Jolie earned the most with $27 million, narrowly beating out Jennifer Aniston, who brought in $25 million. Meryl, SJP, and last year's winner, Cameron, made the top five while Sandra, Reese, Nicole, Drew, and Renée rounded out the 10, which included a few ties. Many of these ladies have had blockbuster hits this past year, and Reese and Nicole were number one in 2007 and 2006 respectively. Tell us — are you surprised these are the 10 highest-paid actresses in Hollywood?

Angelina Jolie looks TERRIBLE in this picture. I'm scared! Actually, I didn't like Reese Whitespoon and Jennifer Aniston. The both are not that good.

I'm surprised that some of these women (who I wouldn't consider to be great actresses) earn so much... maybe you pay for the name!

not surprised jen aniston and sarah jessica's on the list. they make serious moolah off friends and sex and the city residuals. drew and sandra, because they also produce in addition to acting. cameron diaz i'm a bit surprised because she hasn't had a big hit in a while (shrek??). the rest are on the list because they're oscar winners.

Jennifer Aniston should have been #no 1 not Angelina shes not all that great of an actress nor not the most beautiful woman in the world. Jen and the rest should all be up there. Wow you all must be so upset Jen makes so much money.. Are you fucking kidding me? Angelina Jolie won two golden globes, and Oscar and has received countless award nominations. When was the last time Jennifer Aniston win an award, other than the people choice awards?

i think this list makes sense because a lot of those actresses have side projects. most are from endorsement deals, owning production companies etc. most of their money is made from those kind of things. it's hard nowadays to bring in big bucks with just your movies, especially if you consider how much money goes in to making it.
