Emma Stone is highest-paid actress
Surpasses Jennifer Lawrence by earning $26 million in the last 12 months
“La La Land” star Emma Stone has surpassed Jennifer Lawrence to claim the top spot in Forbes’ highest-paid actresses list.
Ms. Stone (28) became the toast of Hollywood with her portrayal of a struggling actor, Mia, in the Damien Chazelle-directed movie, a role that also helped her bag the Best Actress Oscar earlier this year.
She claimed the top spot by earning $26 million in the last 12 months. Ms. Lawrence, who was at the top spot for two consecutive years, was third on the list this year. She made $24 million, just over half her 2016 total earnings.
Jennifer Aniston at second spot
Jennifer Aniston is on the second spot, with her earnings of $25.5 million. The “Friends” star made most of her money from Emirates airlines, Smartwater and Aveeno endorsements.
Melissa McCarthy and Mila Kunis are the other two names in the top five list with $18 million and $15.5 million, respectively.
