  • Highest Paid Actress

The woman who now holds the title as #1 highest-paid actress is Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow in the Marvel Avengers movies - and who earned an estimated $40.5 million over the past 12 months.

Emma Stone earned the top spot on last year's highest paid actresses list - which, remarkably, didn't even feature Johansson - but didn't make it into this year's top ten.

"The percent of budget cost have certainly skewed heavy, particularly on the "Avengers" movies, to cast now, whereas maybe in the early ones it was more visual effects or below the line", Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige told Forbes a year ago. "But that's okay because [the actors] are the best effects".

Angelina Jolie follows behind with $28 million, due to her contract for the upcoming sequel, Maleficient II.

Jennifer Aniston came in third with Dollars 19.5 million, making the bulk of her profits from Emirates airlines, Smartwater, and Aveeno promotions, Forbes reports.

The star released two movies in 2017, Rough Night and Ghost in the Shell, for which she earned backlash for portraying a role many fans believed should have been reserved for a Japanese actor. Overall, the cumulative total is up 16 percent from $172.5 million in 2017.

Also featured on the top list are Mila Kunis (No. 6, $16 million), Julia Roberts (No. 7, $13 million), Cate Blanchett (No. 8, $12.5 million) and Melissa McCarthy (No. 9, $12 million). Gadot, whose turn as Wonder Woman catapulted her to fame, is the only newcomer on the ranking.

This year, only two women broached the $20 million mark, down from three in 2017 and four in 2016.
