Angelina Jolie highest paid actress
MANILA, Philippines - One of Hollywood's highly regarded beauties is also the richest. Angelina Jolie tops this year's Forbes Highest Paid Hollywood Actresses list with her $33 million paycheck.
The actress earned $13 million more than her previous annual salary.
After Jolie's last blockbuster "The Tourist" in 2010, the actress went off the radar, until her surprising disclosure of her double mastectomy this year.
According to Forbes, a $15 million check awaits Jolie for her next project, Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" reboot, "Maleficent," set for release in 2014.
2012 was kind to Jennifer Lawrence as she proved victorious as Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games" and won an Oscar for her performance in "Silver Linings Playbook." Hollywood's newest sweetheart comes in second with $26 million.
In 2014, Lawrence will reclaim her roles as Katniss in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and as Mystique in the X-Men film, "Days of Future Past."
