Forbes Names Emma Stone 2017’s Top-Earning Actress in the (La La) Land
It’s time for Emma Stone to cannonball into her DuckTales swimming pool of gold, because she is officially the top-earning actress in the game, according to Forbes.
The La La Land star ousted Jennifer Lawrence from the top spot on Forbes’s annual list of the world’s highest-paid starlets list this year by earning $26 million (pre-tax) between 2016 and 2017. Ryan Gosling plus the Oscar for Actress in a Leading Role...money.
J Law, who topped the list in 2015 and 2016, was crowned the 2017 runner-up, raking in just $500,000 less than Stone. Jennifer Aniston came in at number three with $24 million, and Melissa McCarthy and Mila Kunis rounded out the top five.
In descending order, the rest of the list includes Forbes newcomer Emma Watson, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts and Amy Adams.
Brava, ladies. Make. It. Rain.
