Angelina Jolie – $18 million
She topped the list of highest paid actresses in 2013, but this year she drops significantly. In terms of highest paid females in Hollywood, she’s at number five. On the list of highest paid actors and actresses combined, she’s at number 15. Her biggest payday in the past year came from her role as Maleficent in the hit movie that starred her as Sleeping Beauty’s evil stepmother. The movie was one of the biggest of the year, and she played the part of the queen like a professional. It’s easy to see why she earns so much.
