Forbes Announces Highest Paid Hollywood Actresses (PHOTOS)

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.   

Click through our gallery to see which actresses made the top 10, and tell us who you think deserved it most in the comments section.

    That's so unfair- Kristen Stewart can't even act. Twelve million dollars? That's ridiculous. Please die. Just go kill yourself. So I wouldn't have to.

    She actually cant act. If you put together all her movies and actually watch them. She acts the same in every single one. she doesn't know how to change characters. shes just acting like Kristen in everything. So all of you stop sticking up for the damn butch. 12 million if friggen ridiculous.

    if twilight never existed , neither would she in the film world, shes a crap actor, in a crap role and its all she will ever do in her life, more power to her tho for cashing in Yea, her nearly 20 other roles would not exist if it weren't for Twilight... moron. FYI, she's done many great movies. Several of her recent non-Twilight performances have garnered quite a bit of critical praise and none of those roles she got from being in Twilight. So kindly shut your ignorant mouth.

    She has one character and thats its. So if you want to say she is a good actress, fine she is with that one character she can play.

    I won't comment on her acting since every movie I've seen her in is the same character. A young girl that is attracted to an older guy. As far as twilight is concerned, is does suck.

    i saw her latest movie, "welcome to the rileys" and she CAN act. i believe she'll get even better and has a chance to win some major awards. she is the total package: beauty, brains, talent, very genuine as a person and as an actor...worth every penny!

  • susan
    susan

    yeah i believe it. i would pay to watch her beautiful face. she CAN act. i always enjoy her movies regardless what role she plays and who she's acting with...she is a real movie star!

  • susan
    susan

    can someone explain why? she hasn't had any hits movies. she acts the same in all her films? she's never carried a film on her own... i don't get why keeps making these movies that don't really make any movie...maybe a couple and only because she was with a major box office star...still like her though but wouldn't pay to watch her movies...only on cable or dvd.

    What I like most about Kristen is she dose not give a sh*t about what you or I think about her. Her talented career will speak for itself and as for money, I don't think that it affects her at all, she is the same person she was when she started.How would this affecf you and how would you act, ah no one cares, Is that what bothers the haters,

    kristen stewart is an extremely talented young artist. she has taken on some very challenging roles and done well portraying them. at age 20 she has had to deal with an unprecedented amount of media attention just waiting for her breathe the wrong way. along with that we have a society full of jealous people who believe that any talented young artist needs to be chased, harrassed, and hated because they're good at what they do. why???? leave the kid alone-let her keep doing what she loves to do!

Sandra , Meryl or kristen? because i will laugh at your face if kristen is the one you're talking about...She rarely wears dresses and she is not extravagant or slutty..And Meryl and Sandra are 2 awesome women ,so what's your point?
