Jennifer Lawrence Tops Forbes' Highest-Paid Actress List For Second Year In A Row

JLaw is making bank.

Jennifer Lawrence’s reign over Hollywood just won’t let up. 

On Tuesday, Forbes released its annual list of the highest-paid actresses in the world, and unsurprisingly, JLaw sits at the top for the second year in a row. According to the magazine, the “Joy” star raked in an impressive $46 million (pretax) over the past year. That total puts her $13 million ahead of the second-ranked actress, Melissa McCarthy, who made a cool $33 million thanks in part to her role in the “Ghostbusters” remake.

Lawrence earned most of her money from the final installment of “The Hunger Games,” which grossed $653.4 million worldwide. She also reportedly got a huge advance for her role in the upcoming sci-fi flick “Passengers,” also starring Chris Pratt. 

Lawrence’s total dropped 11.5 percent from last year, when she made $52 million. But alas, she’s still untouchable. 

Rounding out the list’s top five are Scarlett Johansson, with $25 million, Jennifer Aniston with $21 million and Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, who earned $17 million. Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is the only newcomer on the list, coming in at No. 10 with earnings of $10 million. 

Other actresses on the list include Charlize Theron, Mila Kunis, Amy Adams and Julia Roberts.
