The best actresses have always been in the spotlight. They were invited to attend the premiere of the anticipated film, walk the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival, and give interviews with photographs. Some actresses for the sake of the role went under the knife, changed their image, broke less profitable contracts for the sake of larger ones. How much does it cost to play on camera? Which actresses received the most for their acting role? So, the highest paid actresses in the world.
10. Anne Hathaway
Shelves of cups, hundreds of photographs with other actors, thousands of letters of thanks … The famous American beauty became famous not only for her excellent roles, but also for her “slightly obnoxious” character. She is talented, charming and versatile. She has more than 35 incredible roles, 13 victories in various titles. She has starred in such films as “Witches”, “Love and Other Drugs”, “Trainee”, “Dirty Swindlers”, “The Devil Wears Prada”.
By the way, the actress, born in 1982, was named after the wife of William Shakespeare, who died in 1616. The most interesting thing is that Anne’s husband is very similar to the playwright himself! Once Shakespeare wrote to his beloved that this life is too short to love her, and he promises to find her in the next …
9. Kristen Stewart
Known from “Twilight”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Underwater”, the girl is no longer perceived by anyone as a serious actress. Teenagers became her fans – even during the filming with Robert Pattinson. For several years Kristen met with a charming vampire, with whom she starred in 5 parts of the vampire saga, but then cheated on him with the director of Snow White. After a short break, the couple reconciled, only to part again later. Stewart, apparently, became disillusioned with men and declared herself bisexual, after which she had 6 more affairs with other girls. However, this did not stop her from becoming one of the highest paid actresses in the world.
8. Angelina Jolie
This beauty was once considered the most desirable on the planet. Now she stopped acting in high-quality films, preferring to devote herself to directing. However, during her acting career, she managed to present herself as a very talented actress. She has starred in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Tourist, Girl, Interrupted, Gone in 60 Seconds, Real Women. Not so long ago, her filmography was replenished with “Malificent”, filmed after the victory of the actress over a serious illness. No doubt Jolie’s next films will be great, even if she’s on the other side of the camera!
7. Reese Witherspoon
This woman was considered one of the best actresses of her generation. Many believe that her career began to decline after she won an Oscar for Walk the Line. However, Reese is still ready to show her incomparable charisma if possible!
In 2014, the role of the actress was criticized. In the movie “Wild”, not everyone appreciated her performance. But such fresh films as “And fires are smoldering everywhere”, “Big little lie”, “Broken time” came to the liking of the audience. Witherspoon was even a producer! By the way, her name can be found in the lists of the most desirable, famous and wealthy mothers.
6. Julia Roberts
What a rating without Julia! She is no longer as popular as she used to be, but even now, nothing prevents her from occupying a leading position in the list of successful actresses. Roberts boasts roles in Pretty Woman, Captain Hook, and Best Friend’s Wedding. She also starred in Soderbergh’s stunning film Erin Brockovich. It is interesting that it was after the premiere of this film that the actress was awarded an Oscar!
5. Jennifer Aniston
Constantly positive, stunning blonde with a great sense of humor. She is best known for starring in one of the world’s most comedy series, Friends. It was this work (by the way, very long) that brought Jennifer’s fame for life. The television series was produced for 10 years, and although the last episode was released in early May 2004, the impeccable game of a cheerful group of friends is still remembered now. Aniston has starred in Molly, Quantum Leap, Portrait of Perfection, King of the Hill, Marley and Me. Good films turned out to be “Dirt”, “Thirst for Wandering”, “Burning Love” and “We are the Millers”. But she never received an Oscar.
4. Fan Bingbing
This lovely girl has been seen in films such as X-Men (Days of Future Past), The Legend of Ba Qing, The Life of an Incomparable Beauty, Hot Spot, My Way, and Shaolin. And if in American society she is not strongly recognized, then in her native China she is revered for her versatility. By the way, the actress loves to sing – she has already released several music albums.
3. Melissa McCarthy
The comedian recently starred in Toys for Adults and Hell’s Kitchen, and more recently in the movie Artificial Intelligence. However, many people know her thanks to her role as Doris in Charlie’s Angels (in this film starring another aforementioned actress) and Megan in Bachelorette Party in Vegas. It would seem that the heyday of her career began quite recently (she was not immediately given the main roles), and now she has already become a big celebrity. Her roles are fun; she rarely chooses comedy films or films with a bad ending. Melissa is the actress whose films you can watch in a friendly company on Friday nights.
2. Scarlett Johansson
This actress boasts an interesting, varied and daring career. She managed to strike a balance between ordinary cinema and indie films. She is best known for her roles in The Avengers, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, and Bad Girls. She voiced Kaa in The Jungle Book and played Lucy brilliantly in the film of the same name. Scarlett is an actress who really enjoys filming.
1. Jennifer Lawrence
The highest paid actress has recently taken leading positions in many ratings. She became popular after filming three parts of The Hunger Games, where she played the brave Katniss Everdeen. Jennifer is also known for “Don’t Look Up”, “X-Men”, “Serena”, “House at the End of the Street”. This actress is completely absorbed in any role, experiences it in herself, thanks to which it turns out to convey dramatic heights, and in some films – comic moments. Jennifer received her Oscar after the premiere of the film “My Boyfriend is Psycho”. By the way, this actress really loves to fall in front of the audience at the most unexpected moment!
