Scarlett Johansson Is Forbes’ Highest Paid Actress Of 2018! See The Top Ten List!
Black Widow strikes again!
According to Forbes, Scarlett Johansson is this year’s highest-paid actress with $40.5 million in pretax earnings between June 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018.
The majority of the actress’s money came from playing Black Widow in Avengers: Infinity War, which quadrupled her 2017 earnings and disintegrated last year’s highest paid actress, Emma Stone, like she was the victim of Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet.
ScarJo edged out Angelina Jolie, who landed the number two spot with $28 million. Angie returns to the ranking largely thanks to her upfront pay for Maleficent 2.
Interestingly enough, right behind Angie on the list is Jennifer Aniston, who earned $19.5 million mostly thanks to her endorsements with Emirates airlines, Smartwater, and Aveeno. Dang!
Y’all might be laughing at Jen for doing those commercials — but she’s clearly laughing her way all the way to the bank!
