Jennifer Lawrence : Star tops Forbes’ list of highest-paid actresses of 2015

Jennifer Lawrence is the world’s highest-paid actress, according to Forbes.

The Hunger Games actress brought in $52 million in pre-tax income to top the 2015 rankings ahead of Scarlett Johansson, who earned $35.5m.

The magazine released its list of highest paid actresses and if you’ve been following JLaw’s career, this shouldn’t be surprising. She fronts Lionsgate’s Hunger Games franchise and starred in Sony’s 2013 hit American Hustle.

While $52 million sounds like a lot, it’s much less than what the top-earning actor earned in the same time period. Earlier this month, Forbes said that Avengers star Robert Downey Jr. was the highest paid actor of 2015 with $80 million.

Lawrence is going to go a long way to catch up to Downey next year though. She has one more Hunger Games movie, which comes out this November and will be reportedly paid $20 million to make Sony’s December 2016 film Passengers.

In total, only four actresses made even over $20 million. Scarlett Johansson followed Lawrence with $35.5 million, while Melissa McCarthy raked in $23 million. Chinese star Bingbing Fan made $21 million and Jennifer Aniston rounded out the Top 5 with $16.5 million.

Here’s the full Top 10:

Jennifer Lawrence, $52 million
Scarlett Johansson, $35.5 million
Melissa McCarthy, $23 million
Bingbing Fan, $21 million
Jennifer Aniston, $16.5 million
Julia Roberts, $16 million
Angelina Jolie, $15 million
Reese Witherspoon, $15 million
Anne Hathaway, $12 million
Kristen Stewart, $12 million
