Forbes Top Ten Earning Actresses Earn 53% Of Top Ten Males

These girls are doing it for themselves! 

A list of the top ten earning Hollywood actresses has been released and it comes as no surprise that Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence tops the list - raking in an impressive $52 million last financial year. 

Second place is Scarlett Johansson after her appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, cashing in on $35.5 million. 

While funny woman Melissa McCarthy takes home bronze with $23 million dollars. 

The full list is as follows: 

10. Kristen Stewart - $12 million

9. Anne Hathaway - $12.5 million

8. Reece Witherspoon - $15 million

7. Angelina Jolie - $15.5 million

6. Julia Roberts - $16 million

5. Jennifer Aniston - $16.5 million 

4. Fan Bing Bing - $21 million

3. Melissa McCarthy - $23 million

2. Scarlett Johannson - $35.5 million

1. Jennifer Lawrence - $52 million 

Their combined earnings of $219 million falls just shy of the top ten female earners last year ($226 million). 

Meanwhile four of last year's top 10 did not make the cut this financial year - Gwenyth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Amy Adams and Natalie Portman.

The girls still are earning a hefty amount less than their male counterparts - the top ten males brought in a combined $431 million. 

Further, 21 male actors earned more than $20 million in the financial year in comparison to only four females.
