Scarlett Johansson Highest Paid Actress 2018

Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston Among Top 5 Highest-Paid Actresses -- But Who Is No. 1?

Scarlett Johansson was last seen playing Black Widow in this yera's blockbuster film Avengers: infinity War. Collectively, the top five actresses brought in an impressive $186 million between June 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018, before fees and taxes. With the second installation of the "Avengers: Infinity War" and a "Black Widow" spinoff movie looming in the horizon, the actress may yet increase her income and further secure her place at the top of the list.

Emma Stone earned the top spot on last year's highest paid actresses list - which, remarkably, didn't even feature Johansson - but didn't make it into this year's top ten.

Angelina Jolie returned to the list, largely helped by an advance payment for her future role in Maleficent 2.

It is safe to say the Lucy star is minted as she has surpassed Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, who followed closely in at number two and three, respectively, on the Forbes list.

The figures include endorsement deals away from the big screen, explaining in part why Aniston (Aveeno, Smartwater, Emirates airline) ranks near the top of the money-making marquee, Forbes reported. Her USD 18 million income was USD 6 million less than the prior year.

Finally at fifth place is Reese Witherspoon with recorded earnings of $16.5 million.

Thanks to this lucrative role, Johansson managed to snatch the top spot from Sharon Stone.

The 2018 Forbes list of highest-paid actors is scheduled to be released next week.
