    I like this. They’re equally talented, but Emma is at least super likable.

  2. Cleo says:

    Talent wise I think Emma is more talented than frequently dead behind the eyes JLaw but Jennifer Aniston is always 2nd or 3rd so I guess it’s not based on talent, lol.

    Not hating on Aniston either, get money tbh.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      Isn’t Aniston’s pay due to plugging products (honest question since she hasn’t been in a big film for awhile)?

      • lucy2 says:

        Yes, I saw some TV clip about this list last night, she has a couple of big product deals and the hair care company she invested in sold for a profit.
        If I could make $20+ million for a few commercials, I wouldn’t waste my time making a bunch of movies either!

    • Maya says:

      The only reason Jennifer is on that list is because of endorsements and not movies. She gets less than 2 millions for movies these days.

      If Forbes had any credibility they will make a list of actresses salaries from just acting to see who earned the most.

      • Cami says:

        Your wrong she got big money for spy movie red sparrow that she completed. You saying she only gets two million a pic is ridiculous and a outright lie. I love both actresses and glad they are friends. I don’t like the pitting of actresses against each other. the media likes to do this unfortunately they know people will feed into this.

      • lucy2 says:

        Cami I think she’s referring to Jennifer Aniston, not Lawrence.
        It’s a weird list, including endorsements the way it does, and it varies so much depending on the types of films, release dates, etc. Someone going from a year of a franchise sequel or two and then doing an independent or low budget movie is going to really drop, but may still be very much in demand. What’s always telling is how non-diverse the lists usually are, and how much higher the top 10 men are vs. the top 10 women.

      • Maya says:

        @Cami: as Lucy mentioned, I was referring to Jennifer Aniston and not Jennifer Lawrence.

    • cecila c says:

      Don’t get the ‘dead behind the eyes’ comment about Lawrence at all. A quick look at the Mother trailer should rebut that…

      I see Emma’s money came from her once-off back-end deal on La La Land profits, whereas Lawrence is still getting more up front per film. Makes sense. Good to see two talented actresses at or near the top of the list.

    • kibbles says:

      Stone, Lawrence, and Aniston are all bland to me. None of them can compete with the likes of Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, or Meryl Streep. Also, I just started watching Orphan Black and have been amazed by Tatiana Maslany. I think when it comes to talent, Maslany is way above Stone, Lawrence, and Aniston. It’s just that some people luck out and make it to the Hollywood A-list, or get tons of endorsements, while others with more talent are relegated to television and supporting actor roles with little to no fanfare. This list only talks about money but I absolutely do not equate money with talent in any profession. Look at the people running this country and our corporations, then you will realize that a lot of other factors come into play besides intelligence, talent, or common sense.

      • lucy2 says:

        Tatiana is amazing, the work she has done on that show has been spectacular. I hope she’s able to transition into a great film career or whatever else she wants to do. I like Emma and Jen A in the right roles, but I don’t think they have the range of the other actresses you listed, Nicole and Amy in particular. I think JLaw might get there, I’ve liked her in most things.

      • Mari says:

        Did you guys noticed how “likeble” and praised actresses are always older than 35? I wonder why that is…

      • kibbles says:

        Maturity and honing one’s craft is a factor, so I’m sure the older an actor gets, the better he or she typically becomes at technique, range, etc., but not always. Tatiana Maslany is only 31-years-old, so she already had shown immense talent when she was cast in her mid-20s to star in Orphan Black.

        I actually think some actors start off at their peak, but sell out, or do not put much effort into improving their craft once they become famous. I remember seeing Kate Winslet when she was in her early 20s and thought she was amazing. These days she’s become too Hollywood for my taste. Same with Reese Witherspoon, who had more edge when she was in her 20s, but has now grown more into her type-A personality and has lowered herself a lot of the time to silly romcoms. As a teenager I definitely saw potential in Michelle Williams when she was on Dawson’s Creek, and also preferred her at that age to whatever Twiggy impersonation she’s trying to do now. So it depends.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Tatiana Maslany is going to be in a movie with Jake Gylenhall (sp?) this fall about the Boston marathon bombings. I hope it gets her even more recognition and more opportunities!

        I just started the last season of Orphan Black, and am desperately trying to avoid spoilers because I am so behind.

      • cara says:

        Aniston is not even close to being in the same league as Emma and Jennifer Lawrence.
        Emma has talent, JL showed promise, but with so many flops behind her, she’s losing whatever it was she had. Aniston has no talent beyond being the weak link in the sitcom “Friends”.

      • kibbles says:

        Tiffany, Maslany will likely have a career similar to Gyllenhaal’s in that both are excellent yet underrated actors who receive a lot of critical acclaim, but not the type of hype that will get them nominated every year for an Oscar like JLaw. Their movie about the Boston marathon bombings will probably garner some awards and critical acclaim, but I doubt it will be a blockbuster. It’s still nice to see Maslany and Gyllenhaal work together. I think they are both among the most talented actors of their generation.

    • cara says:

      It’s based on what your PR agency reports to Forbes. Aniston makes literally no money from films, how is she always on the list, it’s preposterous.

      When Angelina made an absolute fortune for Maleficent, and it was a HUGE amount, Forbes still ranked Aniston and some other D-Listers as making more. Angie had no PR guru making up numbers for Forbes. It’s nothing but PR shite, and people would have to be a fool to believe them.

      Gisele outed them a few years ago when the IRS audited her because Forbes reported some outrageous (and totally fake) amount she supposedly made for the year. She said it was total BS.

  3. rachel says:

    No woc in the top ten… Anyway I’m glad to see Amy Adams is getting paid a lot.

  4. LA Elle says:

    Years ago, I dated a guy who had a huge crush on Emma Stone. He was also a huge Tina Fey fan, and all he wanted was a movie written by Tina Fey and starring Tina and Emma. (He was and is a great guy.)

    Now that Emma is the top earner, can we agree she’s a big enough talent that such a project is totally bankable and needs to go into pre-production immediately?

  5. Casey says:

    Good! I find Emma to be a much more interesting (and more talented) actress.

  6. matahari says:

    Just a heads up, the comments section is very distorted on the desktop (non-mobile) site!

  7. Jessica says:

    I guess; wasn’t interested in La La Land. I saw that movie the Easy A and thought it was flat but it got her a lot of attention by the execs. I have no strong feelings about her either way but I do not care for Jennifer Lawrence.

  8. milla says:

    I think they are all overrated and this is me being nice.

    My hearts goes to victims of Barcelona attack. Wonderful city, wonderful people, such a disturbing day…

  9. Mandy says:

    It was a very weak year for actresses, compared with previous years when top billed actress earned 50M+. And no one talked about the actors list? Mark Wahlberg earned 68M.

  10. Babs says:

    I’m going to miss Jaime. The Lannisters are the best actors in this show and toroughly entertaining as a family. The Stark are (were?) good people, but they are dull af, yes, even Arya who is nothing but a giant cliché.
