Emma Stone Dethrones Jennifer Lawrence As Highest-Paid Actress

For two years in a row, Jennifer Lawrence reigned supreme as the world’s highest paid actress. Without a Hunger Games paycheck, the 27-year-old star didn’t have enough to pull off a three-peat. She stumbled to No. 3 on the annual list compiled by Forbes. Don’t feel too sorry for her though. She still managed to rake in $24 million.

According to the publication’s 12 month scoring period, the new Queen of Hollywood is Emma Stone. The 28-year-old La La Land star banked $26 million based on the calculations. Most of her cha-ching came from the success of her smash musical.

Sandwiched in between Stone and Lawrence is, surprisingly, Jennifer Aniston. The 48-year-old actress made the cut with $25.5 million thanks to endorsement deals with SmartWater and Emirates, along with those royalty checks she still receives from Friends.

Overall, this year’s Top 10 highest-paid actresses cumulatively raked in $172.5 million, down 16 percent from 2016. Check out the Top 10 below.
