For the second year in a row, Jennifer Lawrence is the highest-paid actress in the world. This is Jennifer’s third time on the prestigious Forbes list.
For a second consecutive year, Lawrence is the world’s highest-paid woman. The list’s youngest member took a cut of profits from the big box office gross ($653.4 million) of her final The Hunger Games installment and plumped her checkbook with soaring upfront fees.
Forbes explains its evaluation:
Where last year’s ranking evaluated 18 women, this year’s list has returned to the top 10 to give a more accurate portrait of acting’s earning elite. Earnings estimates are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers and lawyers.
Rounding off the top five are Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters), Scarlett Johansson (Ghost in the Shell), Jennifer Aniston (Emirates), Fan Bingbing (X-Men: Days of Future Past).
