  • Joy B Angie

    Johansson is a little ugly.
    Jolie is a b1ttch.
    Aniston & Witherspoon are the best.

  • Moe Grayson

    Scarlett is a terrible actress!

    I bet they’re still complaining. None of them deserve the money they’re making, It’s only because the Hollywood manginas are afraid of their bitching.

  • Anna

    Overpaid if you ask me. Maybe if Marvel actually made a Black Willow solo film it would be justified. But that much when she’s barely in the film? Nah. That’s bs. How is she getting more money than the chick who plays Gamora?

  • Sorcina

    She ain’t worth that much, she isn’t such a good actress either. Overpaid.

  • Thiran Uthaman

    so much tears in the comment section. salty tears.

  • Gina

    She’s also the most overrated actress in the world, too bad there’s not a list for that.

    she’s not overpaid b/c she’s good. she just happens to star in films dominated by guys and superheroes. the other actresses actually star in movies that require acting skills.

    so she made 40,5 millions off of 2 movies that completely tanked (one being a white washing movie aka ghost in the shell) and off of the last avengers where she probably appears like 15 minutes in ? damn it’s good to be white in hollywood I guess. For the people who might come for me for the last comment, look at the top 5 ! 5 WHITE women who all tanked (except angelina who got an upfront salary ?? lmfao), jen lawrence did mother = complete flop / aniston didn’t even appear in any movie that year and reese did Home again and a wrinkle in time aka two of the biggest flops this year

    Why wouldn’t it be white women it’s Hollywood, their movies are watched majority by white people, Asia is Hollywood’s second largest market which has their movies.

    Is it Hollywood’s fault that Bollywood and China or Japan or South Korea that all have thriving Cinema don’t pay the actresses much, you’ll see Asia actors in the top on the male list.

  • Penny

    If Angelina Jolie made 28 million how come she’s broke now? Plus why would she have to get a loan for 8 million from her ex to buy a house? Sounds like she’s really bad with money.

  • Naynay

    see you didn’t get the point smh ! first last time I checked avengers made 1,3 billion dollars outside of america so clearly she ain’t made that much out of your white money, second last time i cheked the USA isn’t just white people, only 60% are white so where are all the others? clearly not in that top 5 and probably not even anywhere near the top 10 (read the statistiques), and last but not least I said WHITE WOMEN THAT ALL TANKED ! can you read the whole fucking sentence ! Last years top 10 if you need more info http://www.papermag.com/the-10-highest-paid-actresses-in-the-world-are-all-white-2474071047.html

    Now if you need more explaining : if you take the top 10 movies of this year I can pinpoint maybe 3 women of color as leads, but do you think they’re getting anything near 40 millions ? hell anything near 10 millions ????
