Who are the latest highest paid actresses in Hollywood? Forbes released their 2017 list and there is a new number one! Oscar winning actress Emma Stone tops the celebrity list of highest paid actresses, a title held for the past two years by Jennifer Lawrence, who, by the way, was not number two this year either, that distinction went to “America’s Sweetheart,” former Friends actress Jennifer Aniston. Then came former number one Jennifer Lawrence. And, we cant forget comedy genius Melissa McCarthy at number four. Other notable actresses who made the cut were Mila Kunis, Emma Watson, Cate Blanchett, “Pretty Woman,” Julia Roberts, and Amy Adams. Ironically, Emma Stone would only make number fifteen on a list that included actors as well, so while she may be the highest paid actress, her male counterparts exceed her earnings. This has been an ongoing issue in the film industry.
