Forbes Announces Highest Paid Hollywood Actresses (PHOTOS)

/ November 10, 2010

Forbes has released its annual list of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses, and the winner is…. Sandra Bullock

Although Sandy’s personal life may have hit a bump in the road this year, her finances never looked better. The Oscar winner cashed in on her stellar performance in The Blind Side by opting to receive a portion of the film’s profits rather than a paycheck upfront, a gamble that definitely paid off. The film has (to date) made $320 million, and only cost $40 million to make. Now, she’s #1 on Forbes’ list with $56 million last year.

Kristen Stewart rounded out the top 10 with a respectable $12 million gain last year, mostly from the success of Eclipse. She’s also the youngest on the list by over ten years at age 20.
