Jolie beats Aniston to be named ‘Hollywood’s top earning actress’July 2nd, 2009 - 1:24 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): Angelina Jolie has been named Hollywood’s top earning actress by Forbes magazine after she raked in 27 million dollars in the past year.
Her partner Brad Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, who raked in 25 million dollars in the last 12 months, came second, reports the China Daily.
Jolie earned most of the money from her share of the profits from her action film ‘Wanted,’ but she was also paid a large upfront sum for her role in ‘Salt.’
Aniston earned most of her millions from the romantic comedy ‘Marley and Me’ and her upcoming film ‘The Baster.’
“Aniston also still earns money from (reruns of TV series) Friends and she gets a nice paycheck shilling for Glaceau’s SmartWater,” Forbes.com said.
Meryl Streep landed the third spot with 24 million dollars while Sarah Jessica Parker came fourth with 23 million dollars.
Cameron Diaz rounded off the top five after raking in 20 million dollars in the last 12 months. (ANI)
