Angelina Jolie Tops Hollywood's Highest-Paid Actress List With $33M

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.

Jennifer Aniston was next with $20 million, still making those "Friends" residuals. Ranking fifth is Emma Stone who earned an estimated $16 million.

Rounding out the top 10 in order is Charlize Theron in sixth ($15 million), Sandra Bullock ($14 million), Natalie Portman ($14 million), Mila Kunis ($11 million) and Julia Roberts ($11 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."
