Scarlett Johansson is the highest-paid actress in the world

Last year's highest-paid actress, Oscar-winning "La La Land" star Emma Stone, fell out of the top 10.

Infinity War actress Scarlett Johansson collected $40.5 million in pre-tax earnings between June 1st, 2017 and June 1st, 2018, which is nearly twice that of her nearest competitor, Angelina Jolie (Maleficent), who lifted approximately $28 million during the same period. Reese Witherspoon comes up fifth this year with $16.5 million, but along with Jennifer Aniston, she will see a significant bump next year with their Apple streaming service show. In the end, Feige justifies it by stating, "the actors are the best special effects".

Coming in second place in Forbes' latest rankings is Angelina Jolie, who is starring in the forthcoming Malificent 2 and pulled in an estimated $28 million.

Jennifer Aniston is also on the list, making the majority of her money from deals with Emirates Airlines and Aveeno. Much of her income during this period came from Marvel's "Avengers" movie franchise, where she played as Black Widow spy, reports Forbes. Johansson's Black Widow wasn't even really in the movie a whole lot, but the Marvel Studios project was enough to command her the top spot of highest paid actresses.

Jennifer Lawrence takes up fourth place with combined earnings from the TV series "Big Little Lies" and the "X-Men" and a contract with luxury brand Dior. All figures are pretax; fees for agents, managers, and lawyers are not deducted. This all amounts to $19.5 million. Roberts had huge box office success with Wonder this year as well. "The industry has had a hard time shifting to acknowledging that they need to hit a more diverse audience". The combined earnings of the top 10 women this year is United States dollars 186 million. That lack of roles means that there are fewer opportunities for female stars to earn big bucks. Just two women surpassed $20 million, compared with three in 2017 and four in 2016.
