Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker Are Hollywood’s Top Earners
Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker were Hollywood’s top dollar magnets last year, according to Forbes.com.
The annual list that ranks Hollywood’s highest paid actresses showed Jolie and Parker sharing the top spot with estimated earnings of $30 million each. Jolie’s earnings came from the success of her two films last year, “Salt” and “The Tourist.” The two films have earned nearly $300 million each globally, proving once again that Jolie’s international appeal remains high. Parker, on the other hand, made it to the top due to her earnings from reruns of the series “Sex and the City,” where she is both a lead actress and producer. “Sex and the City 2,” the sequel to the movie version of the series, also boosted Parker’s stock with $290 million in earnings.
Not far behind the two were the duo of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who earned $28 million each between May 2010 and May 2011. Tying for fifth and sixth places were Julia Roberts and “Twilight” actress Kristen Stewart, who took home $20 million each during the same period.
