The Oscar-winning Jennifer Lawrence comes in second with $26 million
Angelina Jolie was in the news earlier this year for sharing her courageous decision to undergo an elective double mastectomy, now she's making headlines as Forbes highest-paid actress.
All told, the actress earned an estimated $33 million between June 2012 and June 2013. That's a $13 million dollar raise from last year. Jolie had previously topped Forbes 2013 "Most Powerful Actress" list as well.
Jolie reportedly earned $15 million for "Maleficent," Disney's retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty story.
In second place is Hollywood's current "It girl," Jennifer Lawrence. At $26 million a year, the Academy Award-winning actress ("Silver Linings Playbook") earned less than $1 million for "The Hunger Games," but after enormous box office success, Lionsgate gladly bumped up her pay for the sequel.
Kristen Stewart, who topped last year's list with a whopping $34.5 million in earnings, ranks third this year with an estimated $22 million.
Forbes compiled its list by talking to agents, managers and other "in-the-know" people to estimate entertainment-related revenue for each celebrity between June 2012 and June 2013. It did not deduct for taxes, agent fees or "any of the other costs of being a celebrity."
