Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most successful actresses at the moment. The talented star is widely known for her roles in The Hunger Game or X-Men, among many others. In fact, throughout the years, Jennifer has been featured in a wide range of successful movies. Thus, there is no wonder that the famous star has just been named the world's highest-paid actress.

The top was naturally released by Forbes, which claimed that the popular actress made no less than $52 million, before taxes, last year. The nomination is not shocking at all, as it actually is not the first time when the star receives such a spot. Jennifer was also named the top grossing actor (male or female) of 2014. The beautiful star achieved that performance thanks to her role in Mockingjay - Part 1, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past, which brought Jennifer earnings of more than $1.4 billion.

If Jennifer Lawrence took the first spot, the second was occupied by Scarlett Johansson. The fact that Scarlett took this spot is not surprising either, as the famous actress is widely known for her numerous successful roles. According to Forbes, Scarlett made no less than $35.5 million in the past year. The third place was occupied by Melissa McCarthy, who managed to make $23 million.

A surprise came from another widely-known actress, who was featured on the 15th place, Sandra Bullock. So, it seems that Sandra did not manage to enter top ten this year, even though back in 2014 she actually got the first position on the Highest Paid Actress top. The star made around $51 million then, but now her incomes seem to have dropped to only $8 million.

Another surprise that Forbes prepared now is that it has not only focused on US actresses. Actually, the top also included actresses from all around the world, so the fourth place was in fact occupied by a Chinese star, Bingbing Fan, an actress who managed to make $21 million.

Well, if Jennifer is the highest paid actress in the world, Robert Downey Jr. managed to top the list of the world's best paid actor. Actually, this was something expected, as the star managed to top the list for the third consecutive year. The actor earned $80 million.
