Celebrities are envied enough for their gorgeous looks but what makes us ordinary people want to be like them even more is the more-than-comfortable life that they live because of the big bucks they make. We all know that most celebs started from the lowest of the lows when it comes to making money but it’s just so inspiring to see where they are now. And wouldn’t it be more exciting to know how much they make, just for curiosity’s sake? Here’s a list of some of the highest paid actresses that will inspire you to work harder.
- Angelina Jolie – she’s truly the perfect epitome of ‘the woman who has it all’. Personally, if you ask me whose celebrity life I would like to take a peek of, I’d say Angelina Jolie. She has the hottest man in Hollywood as her fiancé, she has gorgeous kids from diverse backgrounds, she’s an actress, a director, a producer and a screenwriter all in one and as if that isn’t enough, she’s the highest paid actress in Hollywood as well, raking in $33 million last year.
- Jennifer Lawrence – Hollywood’s new It Girl comes next to Angelina Jolie in this list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence made an estimate of $26 million last year, thanks to the appearances she made in some of the most anticipated movies last year including Catching Fire from the Hunger Games franchise. And let’s not forget her role in another hit movie Silver Linings Playbook which led her to winning the Best Actress award from the Oscars.
- Kristen Stewart – Kristen stole the number one spot from Angelina Jolie in the list of highest paid actresses in Hollywood back in 2012 when she made a whopping $35.4 million but in 2013, Kristen goes 2 levels down, placing third on the list as she made $22 million. A huge part of Stewart’s earnings can be credited to the Twilight series and now that the said series is done and Kristen is playing roles in smaller films, her finances might start to dry up and shrink unless she finds another successful franchise to star in like Twilight.
- Jennifer Aniston – America’s sweetheart Jennifer Aniston comes in at 4th place for the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. In 2013, Aniston made an estimated $20 million last year (2013) but that doesn’t matter anymore. Because of her success back from her F.R.I.E.N.D.S days, Jen is free to choose movies that make her feel more comfortable rather than those that would rake in more cash for her. This is why you’d hardly ever see Jen in mainstream movies as she chooses to work with lower-budget comedies.
- Emma Stone – and finally, capping off our list of the top 5 highest paid actresses in Hollywood is Emma stone who made $16 million last year. The young actress not only made it to the top 5 list of highest paid actresses but also debuted on the Forbes Celebrity 100, a list of the 100 most powerful celebs published annually in which Stone placed 84th.
