Nicole Kidman is The Highest Paid Actress

Keith may not be at his best right now but Nicole is at the top of her game. Out of all of the actresses in Hollywood, she makes the most at about $17 million a picture. While there's no doubting her acting abilities, we're still a little surprised that she's still making so much after flops like The Stepford Wives and Bewitched. Still, she finds a good balance between doing big budget blockbusters like Happy Feet and smaller more creative projects like Fur. That way she's sure to make lots of money and still keep the Oscar nominations rolling in!

To find out who the other top paid actresses are just

2. Reese Witherspoon, Renée Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz all tie at $15 million!
3. Halle Berry - $10 million
4. Charlize Theron - $10 million
5. Angelina Jolie - $10 million
6. Kirsten Dunst - $8 million-$10 million
7. Jennifer Aniston - $8 million

I personally don't think she's that great of an actress but she is beautiful and gets more beautiful with age.

Actually Reese Witherspoon is the highest paid, i believe she is making $29 million on her next movie.

Mar, I'm seriously shocked about that one too. A good article about the list can be read about it at... wwwdeadlinehollywooddailycom/852/ Dot after www and after daily. Everytime I've tried to put a link the post never goes through and so I'm trying it this way.

these are movies that were made THIS year, so you will not see the movies they are getting paid for until next year. Julia Roberts has not made a movie in 2 years, so naturally the next Hoolywwod heavyweight is Nicole. I am kind of shocked Aniston made the top 10. The break up saved her movie career. Hillary Swank is obviously not a huge box office draw!

she needs to let go of the blonde hair, she looks much better with her natural red and curls. too much botox and collegan. why cant these ladies age gracefully? and if they do go for a little help do it subtly?

you know what paigesweetkisses, I am a huge Angie fan, but 10 mil for movie is enough, and look that she gives way a third of this. but she said that she has a ridiculous income for what she does. These people are tooo spoiled, Lindsay Lohan makes what 8 mil for movie? its pathetic

I like Nicole - she seems down to earth, was excellent in The Others, and she survived crazy Cruise. What gets me, though, is that she's the highest paid at $17 mil. a picture, while the highest paid male actor probably gets about $30 mil! Why are people so focused on her looks, instead of being outraged by such a huge salary discrepancy?

I am shocked to see what she has done to her face. I have followed her career since the way back days of Dead Calm. Meg Ryan is another one. She use to be on As the World Turns when I was just a wee one. They were beautiful women.

her face is super plastic.. her nose is horrible.. but she's good at what she does & I guess thats what counts. its hard to believe angie's not higher on the list.. & i'm not saying that because i'm a fan because i certainly am not.

Her hands need the same attention as her face and neck...actually I really don't mind her, the fact that she's the highest paid is kind of a surprise though.

her face looks very plastic, kinnda like meg ryan...i don't think i have ever seen a movie with her in it...she just seems dull to me "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

actually, nicole kidman donates a lot of her time and money to UNIFEM and some other organizations. i like her a lot, i hope everything works out with keith and her.

This kind of surprises me, as she hasn't headlined a "hit" in ages. and her wedding doesn't count.
