Forbes have revealed their list of best-paid actresses in Hollywood. It is, unfortunately, still true that females actresses still tend to be paid a little less than their male counterparts but some of the girls are definitely earning more than a pretty penny.
While Sandra Bullock won the top slot in the chart with earnings of $56 million the rest of the girls didn’t do too badly either.
However Bullock has been having a pretty good streak of successes recently. “The Proposal” made $320 million and the film’s budget was just $40 million. Then came “The Blind Side” which earned $310 million in the box office on a $30 million budget. Earning $56 million just one year Bullock is the outstanding winner.
It’s not surprise that, Ireland loving, Sarah Jessica Parker, is on the list having earned big on “Sex and the City 2”. Along with this and her earnings from syndications Parker earned $25 million this year.
Drew Barry has a pretty good year too earning $15,000. Between 2009 and 2010 she starred in “He’s Just Not That Into You”, “Whip It”, “Everybody’s Fine” and “Going the Distance”.
And, of course, I don’t think anyone needs to ask how Kristen Stewart made her money. Of course there was the “Twilight: New Moon” movie during that period along with some other role. However, Stewart is set to jump up this list as it’s estimated that she will earn up to $41 for the last two movies in the series “Breaking Dawn”, part one and two.
