Jennifer Lawrence has had quite a few big roles over the course of the last 12 months and today, Forbes made it official – she is the highest paid actress in Hollywood, and by quite a margin.
Namely, while Jennifer brought home $52 million, Scarlett Johansson, who is in second place, earned only $35.5 million. While we are generally satisfied with the fact that it was Jennifer who got paid the most this last year, we cannot help but be appalled by the discrepancy between her earnings and the earnings of her male colleague who topped the actor list for two years in a row – Robert Downey Jr. Iron Man brought home $80 million this last year.
There is news that Jennifer will be making almost twice the money as her co-star on the upcoming SF movie Passengers, Chris Pratt, and we are only hoping this is not a one-off occurrence.
