Jennifer Lawrence is still the highest paid actress in the world, even if her cumulative haul went down a few million bucks from the last time she topped the list.

The “Hunger Games” actress has topped Forbes‘ annual ranking of highest-paid actresses for a second straight year after raking in $46 million in the last year, thanks in large part to her payday from the final “Hunger Games” movie and her fee for the upcoming movie “Passengers.” The total is $6 million less than the last time she topped the Forbes list last year with $52 million.

Melissa McCarthy moved up in this year’s ranking from the number three spot to number two with $33 million. In addition to running her own clothing line, McCarthy reportedly pocketed a nice chunk of change for her role in the reboot of “Ghostbusters.”

Charlize Theron and Amy Adams cracked the top 10 this year as well, earning a reported $16.5 million and $13.5 million respectively. Mila Kunis jumped up several places as well to make number nine on the list with $11 million, thanks in part to endorsement deals with Jim Beam and Gemfields jeweler.

The only non-Hollywood actresses to make the top 10 were China’s Fan Bingbing, who dropped one spot from last year, and Bollywood’s Deepika Padukone.
