Jennifer Lawrence is the world’s highest paid actress, two years running

That’s a lot of money.

Forbes have released their annual list of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses and let’s just say, these women are earning some serious cash.

At the top of the list? Jennifer Lawrence with a pay packet of over AUD $60 million dollars.

Yep, SIXTY million dollars. You could buy a few mansions in the Hollywood hills with that kind of money.

Lawrence earned that majority of her money from the final movie in The Hunger Games series and a sizeable upfront fee for her upcoming film Passengers. While J-Law’s income may have fallen slightly since 2015 – when she took home around AUD $68 million – it’s safe to say she’s rolling in it.

Just last year, Lawrence penned an essay for Lenny Letter, calling out the gender pay gap in Hollywood. "​When the Sony hack happened and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with dicks, I didn't get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself," she said. So J-Law started negotiating for what she's worth, which is just as much as her male counterparts, thank-you-very-much.

In case you were wondering, Melissa McCarthy came in second on the list, earning around AUD $43 million in the last year. Not a bad effort McCarthy.

We think it’s J-Law’s turn to buy the next round!
