Forbes just released the list of Highest Paid Actresses, and winning the number one spot after making $43-million this year is.... Sofia Vergara
Scarlett Johansson had been at the top of the list for two years straight – but since Marvel’s “Black Widow” has been delayed, she hasn’t been raking in the same dough. In fact, she’s not even in the top ten – instead, Angelina Jolie follows after making $35-point-five-million. A big chunk of that comes from signing on to Marvel’s “The Eternals,” along with earnings from box office hits like “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” and ”Alice In Wonderland.”
Also on the list are Gal Gadot, Melissa McCarthy, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Nicole Kidman, Ellen Pompeo, Elisabeth Moss, and Viola Davis.
Combined, the ten highest-paid actresses earned a total of $254-million, down 20-percent from last year. The ten highest-paid male actors collected $545.5 million this year, almost double that of their female peers.
