Jen's milllions sprang from the success of "Marley & Me" and a paycheck from her next film, "The Baster," as well as serving as a spokesperson for SmartWater and residuals from "Friends" reruns.

Just under the two intertwined actresses was Meryl Streep, who earned $24 million thanks largely to the box office power of "Mamma Mia," and Sarah Jessica Parker, who earned $23 million on the strength of the big screen debut of "Sex and the City."
