The American business magazine Forbes has published a list of the highest paid actresses in the world, where the leader has radically changed.
At the end of the reporting year, according to the publication’s calculations, the 48-year-old American-Colombian actress and model Sofia Vergara, who earned $ 43 million in 2023, escaped to the first line, displacing Scarlett Johansson.
Second place – actress, director, producer and public figure Angelina Jolie – 35.5 million. Closes the top three Israeli actress and model Gal “Wonder Woman” Gadot – 31.5 million.
Followed by comedian Melissa McCarthy ($25 million), Meryl Streep (24), Emily Blunt (22.5), Nicole Kidman (22), Ellen Pompeo (19), Elisabeth Moss (16) and Viola Davis (15.5) .
At the same time, according to the calculations of the magazine, in total, the ten most successful actresses of this year earned 20% less than in the past.
As the coronavirus plague has taken over the big screens this year, actresses who have proven themselves on the small screens – on TV and streaming – have climbed to the top of the list. For example, Vergara, who played the female lead in the sitcom Modern Family, earned $500,000 per episode. Whereas the same Johansson did not even hit the top ten – her fees this year fell by forty million dollars compared to the past.
Previously, a list of “the main Russian actresses of the decade” was published.
