Well, the list is finally out! And this years list may surprise you…Can you guess which leading lady dethroned Jennifer Lawrence this year?

That’s right ya’ll! Jen is no longer in first place after two years holding the title. Not that she’s hurting of course as the ‘Hunger Games’ star is still making a pretty penny at $24 million this year… you may be shocked to see which TWO beat her out this year!

  1. Emma Stone

Emma saw a big pay day of $26 million. She can thank her Oscar-winning performance as Mia in La La Land for the huge paycheck.

  1. Jennifer Aniston

Jen is still living lavish. She made $25.5 million this year thanks to Friends royalties. That’s right, Rachel Green is still making millions off of Friends. She also has some hefty endorsement deals with Emirates airlines, Smartwater and Aveeno.

  1. Jennifer Lawrence

The former number one highest paid actress slid down to number three making $24 million. It’s still a big pay day, but it’s about half of what she made in 2016, which was $46 million. JLaw has a lot of projects coming up so expect her to climb the chart next year.

  1. Melissa McCarthy

The funny lady raked in $18 million this year. Thanks to Ghostbusters and Gilmore Girls reunion and royalties Melissa made bank.

  1. Mila Kunis

Mila made a cool $15.5 million this year. Between Bad Moms, Family Guy and That 70s Show reruns I think Mila can retire now.

  1. Emma Watson

This is Emma’s first time making the list and she brought in $14 million. Beauty and The Beast was a huge success and it proved so when she got her paycheck. Even Harry Potter couldn’t place her on the highest paid list.

  1. Charlize Theron

The South African native made $14 million in 2017. Thanks to her role as Furiousa in Mad Max she made a pretty penny.

  1. Cate Blanchett

Are you shocked that Cate is on this list? She made $12 million this last year, but wasn’t in any major films. But she is fine with the upcoming role in Thor: Ragnarok.

  1. Julia Roberts

Julia made $12 million this past year. Julia brought in the dough thanks to her voice work in Smurfs: The Lost Village.

  1. Amy Adams

Amy raked in $11.5 million in 2017. Thanks to big movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Arrival and Nocturnal Animals Amy made bank this year.
