  • dabu

    Classy and beautiful as usual. A true hollywood star and a great actress.

  • to jw

    Jealous much? You doth protest too much!

  • eliza

    Some years she’s higher on the list, some years lower depending on the things she’s done during that year. When it comes to choosing screen roles, I don’t think money is a major consideration for her anymore anyway. She picks challenging, interesting parts, even in low-budget independent films, because she’s not just a celebrity or a “movie star,” she’s a talented actress. That’s why most of the industry’s best directors like to work with her.

  • dIETER

    It’s no wonder that Cameron Diaz earns so much money: she is working so hard !!!

  • Gracie

    Nicole was pregnant for half of 2008 (gave birth to Sunday Rose on July 7). The only movie that she did was “Nine” (in which she had a supporting role), unless her salary for “Australia” was counted in 2008 (she did a few “Australia” re-shoot scenes in late 2008.). I’d say she made a pretty good income while being pregnant six months of 2008! Also, I believe from the roles she takes that money is not a priority for her when she makes her decision to accept a role.

    Nicole is aging gracefully and beautifully. I disagree with those who say she looks “old”. Why do you use “old” in such a derogatory way?Why can’t older women who look older also be beautiful? Do younger people own all the beauty that is allowed? I believe that beauty comes in all ages and in all sizes, shapes, races and colors. From reading about her exercise regimen, she is much more fit than a lot of people in their teens, 20′s and 30′s…fitness and good health count as beautiful, too.

  • Matt

    She’s still quite beautiful, but the huge irony is that if she hadn’t done so many desperate things to try to look younger, she would look way, way hotter. The botox and god-knows-what-else she’s done have really taken their toll on her face.

    Leave your face alone, Nicole!!

  • Pamela

    Beautiful, classy lady who shows great kindness and grace to fans, , always. First class, Nic.

    # 4- nola

    so what? eVERYBODY including YOU will age unless you die young

  • marina

    her curly hair is getting all frizzy with the rain. She used to look so different with her curly hair, but straight makes her look more sophisticated.

  • what a joke

    This list is full of sh!t , Jolie and Aniston earned more than her? Jolie has earned money for selling her kids to the media and for doing the tabloids covers….she wasn’t even the lead in that crap movie Wanted the other was a cartoon KFP what a joke, where are the real actresses?

  • ALWAYS beautiful

    SHE IS DOING A MOVIE and playing a role and she is not a teenager in this mocie so don’t expect her to look like one! She has to be true to the character or the movie won’t be any good and you”ll all be complaining that she looked way too young for the part!

  • to What a joke

    Before shooting your mouth off why don’t you do some research. Jolie got $15 million plus a percentage of the profits for Wanted and she got an upfront pay check for Salt:

    Forbes.com said: “Much of Angelina’s earnings came from her share of the profits on Wanted, but she also scored a fat upfront check for Salt, an action film originally slated to star Tom Cruise, in which Jolie plays a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian spy.”

    And Aniston aside from her over inflated salaries for her movies (Marley and Me and The Baster) (since most of them bomb) also gets residuals from Friends as well asa her pushing SmartWater.

    I’d say Kidman did pretty good in terms of earnings for being out of commission for much of the earning period. And earning most of her money from Australia. If she had done The Reader and maybe one or two other pictures, she’d probably be #1 again.
