Forbe’s World’s Highest-Paid Actresses 2017

Jennifer Lawrence has finally lost her place as the highest-paid actress on Forbes‘ annual list. Lawrence, who was No. 1 in both 2015 and 2016, moved down on the list for 2017. 

Click through to see who took first place and some of the other actresses in the top ranks of Hollywood earners.

1. Emma Stone: $26 million

La La Land–the city and its celluloid namesake–has been very kind to Emma Stone. At just 28 years old, the Hollywood star is this year’s highest-paid actress, banking $26 million pretax in our 12 month scoring period.

Stone has her earnings from the movie-musical to thank for the bulk of her payday, which also won her a Best Actress Oscar. Her portrayal of Mia, an aspiring actress, and barista, garnered rave reviews and goosed the film to $445.3 million at the global box office.

2. Jennifer Aniston: $25.5 million

Former “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston still has plenty of cachets, which has helped her snag lucrative endorsements with Smartwater, Aveeno, and Emirates. Aniston also had a stake in luxury haircare line Living Proof, which was sold to Unilever in December. She also makes money from films.

3. Jennifer Lawrence: $24 million.

Jennifer Lawrence, who has been outspoken about the gender pay gap in Hollywood, is No. 3 this year on Forbes’ highest-paid list. She was No. 1 the past two years. Still, even without the “Hunger Games” this year, Lawrence made a cool $24 million with the help of movies “Mother!” and “Red Sparrow,” as well as a partnership with Dior.

4. Melissa McCarthy: $18 million
