Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie are Hollywood's hottest commodities! According to Forbes' annual list, these ladies are the top-earning female actresses, and both reportedly took home a stellar $30 million between May 2010 and May 2011.
That's a lot of cash!
Jolie is working hard to earn her dollars. She recently wrote and directed the upcoming film In the Land of Blood and Honey, a romance set in the Bosnian War, and starred in two high-profile action movies, Salt and The Tourist. Thought The Tourist, which co-starred Johnny Depp, wasn't too much of a smash in the U.S., the film did well overseas and went on to earn $280 million.
Parker is still reaping the benefits of Carrie Bradshaw's romantic trials in Sex and the City. She makes loads of cash from the TV reruns and the second movie, which hit screens in 2010, brought in a respectable $290 million. Parker also has a successful line of perfumes and has just recently started helping design clothes for the fashion line Halston.
Coming in just behind the ladies on top of the list are Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who both earned about $28 million this past year. And, tying at a cool $20 million, are veteran girl-next-door Julia Roberts and The Twilight Saga's Kristen Stewart.
Rounding out the very fortunate top ten are Katherine Heigl, Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep.
