Jolie, Parker Are Hollywood's Top Earning Actresses



    Cannes Film Festival: Angelina Jolie on "Kung Fu Panda 2"

    Angelina Jolie and Jack Black chat about doing the voice work for their new animated feature, "Kung Fu Panda 2." How much of the work did they do together? Plus, what did Angelina's kids think about the movie? (Published Tuesday, March 4, 2014)

    What do Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker have in common? How about $30 million? 

    According to Forbes' annual list of Hollywood's top-earning actresses, both "The Tourist" star and the "Sex and the City" star brought in that much over the course of the past year. Jolie primarily through high profile films, and Parker through a combination of her residual "Sex" cash and an estimated $18 million in sales of her signature fragrance, "Lovely."

    Just below Jolie and Parker sit Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom can claim earnings of $28 million from May 2010 to May 2011.

    The rest of the list indicates a bit of a changing of the guard in Hollywood, as the once powerful Julia Roberts saw her standing sink to fifth - tying her with upstart Kristen Stewart of "Twilight" fame. Sandra Bullock - usually a fixture on the list - didn't even crack the top 10.
