Which leading ladies are raking in the cash?

Forbes Magazine has unveiled its annual list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, and you might be surprised at the results.

The number five spot on the list actually yielded a tie: both Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie pulled in $18 million this year. While Cameron was seen in The Other Woman and Sex Tape, Angelina took on a fairy tale with her title role in Disney’s Maleficent. Angelina is also making a name for herself as a director; her film Unbroken will hit theaters on Christmas day, and she’s already working on another directorial project called By The Sea. 

Number four goes to Gwyneth Paltrow, who made an estimated $19 million. The blonde bombshell starred in Iron Man 3 but also raked in the dough from her endorsement deals for Hugo Boss and Max Factor.

Jennifer Aniston made $31 million, making her the number three highest-paid actress. Like Gwyneth, she supplements her acting with endorsements: for Jen, it’s Smart Water and Aveeno.

Number two on the list is Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, who is just 23 but took in $34 million for The Hunger Games, American Hustle and more. We’ll see if she’ll make her way to the top one day!

We were surprised to see Kristen Stewart missing from the list, but that must be because she’s cashed her final paycheck from the Twilight franchise. So who’s number one? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!
