Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has topped, for the second successive year, the Forbes’ list of highest paid female actors in the world. The 34-year-old actor’s earning, after the success of her summer Marvel film ‘Avengers: End Game’, reached USD 56 million.
Johansson has also secured a fat paycheck for her upcoming ‘Black Widow’ movie from Disney’s Marvel Studios, according to the outlet report.
She is followed by ‘Modern Family’ star Sofia Vergara with USD 44.1 million earnings while ‘Big Little Lies’ actors Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are placed at the third and fourth spot on the list, with the earning of USD 35 million and USD 34 million, respectively.
All the earnings of the actors were calculated between the period of June 1, 2018, and June 1, 2019.
Jennifer Aniston, who earned in USD 28 million, rounds out the top five, followed by Kaley Cuoco (USD 25 million), Elisabeth Moss (USD 24 million) and Margot Robbie (USD 23.5 million).
Charlize Theron and Ellen Pompeo, were placed at the ninth and tenth positions, respectively.
Forbes noted that though the combined earnings of highest-paid female actors grew by 69 per cent to USD 314.6 million, it was still way below than the combined haul of their male counterparts who raked in USD 588.3 million.
