Forbes magazine has named “Gravity” actress Sandra Bullock as Hollywood’s richest leading lady. Well, when it comes to high earnings, Oscar-winning “Miss Congeniality” here manages to snag the top spot.
Bullock knocks Angelina Jolie off her pedestal to become Hollywood’s highest paid actress with estimated earnings of USD51 million (approximately RM163 million) over a period of 12 months. Two Jennifers, Lawrence and Aniston respectively, follow closely behind.
Forbes magazine comes up with its yearly list by estimating earnings from the actresses’ film work, endorsements and residuals and advertising work. Forbes also talked to the actresses’ agents, producers, managers and lawyers, among others.
