Scarlett Johansson Highest Paid Actress 2018

  • Angelina Jolie 43 earned $28 million largely thanks to a payment for the film Maleficent 2 scheduled for 2020

Thanks to her role as Black Widow for Marvel's Avengers movies, it's learned that Scarlett Johansson is the highest paid actress of 2018 with a whopping $40.5 million in pre-tax earnings between June 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018. Even more impressive? The actress quadrupled her earnings as it's reported she took in less than $11.5 million in 2017.

While the actress has often found herself in controversy - via her Ghost in the Shell and Rub & Tug casting - Johansson's role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven to be gainful for the actress.

Scarlett beat out Angelina Jolie, who ranked second with United States dollars 28 million thanks mainly to her upfront pay for Maleficent 2. Rounding out the top three is the perennially bankable Jennifer Aniston, who may not have a big film role this year, but her endorsement contracts with Aveeno, Smartwater and Emirates airlines are incredibly lucrative. And it's a safe bet that Aniston might climb the list next year with her upcoming Apple TV series co-starring Reese Witherspoon, who also made the list - coming in at number five with $16.5 million.

Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has become the best-paid female actor in the world, according to Forbes magazine.

Last year's highest-paid actress, Emma Stone, was not part of the top 10. Last year, Mark Wahlberg led the pack with US$68 million thanks to his pay days for movies "Daddy's Home 2" and "Transformers: The Last Knight". The combined earnings of the top 10 women this year is United States dollars 186 million.
