Jennifer Lawrence ranked highest-paid actress
“Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence topped Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid actresses, earning $52 million in the past year but still far behind the highest paid actor.
Lawrence also had income for being the face of French fashion and beauty company Dior but her combined earnings came nowhere close to the estimated $80 million of “Iron Man” star Robert Downey Jr. He topped Forbes list earlier in August of the highest paid male actors.
Forbes noted that only four of the women on this year’s highest-paid list, which takes into account earnings from movies, television, endorsements and other sources, made more than $20 million while 21 male actors reached that level.
Lawrence towered above Scarlett Johansson, second on the actress list with an estimated $35.5 million, and “Mike & Molly” star Melissa McCarthy with $23 million, Forbes said.
