These Are the Highest Paid Actresses in Hollywood

All hail Queen J.Law.

Forbes released its annual list of the highest-paid actresses, and these women are making bank. The outlet tracked pre-tax income of the world's biggest movie stars and found that Jennifer Lawrence made $52 million this year, ahead of the rest by nearly $20 million. Second in line was Scarlett Johansson, followed by Melissa McCarthy.

The list tracked stars all over the world, but only one non-American made the top 10. Bingbing Fan, a Chinese superstar who appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, made a whopping $20 million and placed fourth.

Combined, the top 10 made $281 million - but keep in mind the gender pay gap is massive. The highest-paid actor, Robert Downey Jr., made $80 million last year. (Plus, The Hunger Games is one of the few blockbuster franchises with a female leading role.)

Check out the top 10 highest paid actresses, and see the full list at Forbes' website.

1.    Jennifer Lawrence: $52 million

2.    Scarlett Johansson: $35.5 million

3.    Melissa McCarthy: $23 million

4.    Bingbing Fan: $21 million

5.    Jennifer Aniston: $16.5 million

6.    Julia Roberts: $16 million

7.    Angelina Jolie: $15 million

8.    Reese Witherspoon: $15 million

9.    Anne Hathaway: $12 million

10.   Kristen Stewart: $12 million
