Jennifer Lawrence, the 25-year-old Hunger Games star, is the world’s highest paid actress, according to a new ranking published by Forbes. The actress took in an estimated $52 million in earnings over the last year to June, thanks to her role in the fantasy action triology as the heroic ‘Katniss Everdeen.’
Scarlett Johansson came in second, raking in a cool $35.5 million, followed by ‘Bridesmaid’ star Melissa McCarthy with $23 million.Only one non-American made the ranking — Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, who broke into the top 20 for the first time, earning $21 million. While $52 million is no chump change, it pales in comparison to what the highest paid men in Hollywood can command.
