Scarlett Johansson tops Forbes best-paid actress list for second year

  • Avengers actress Johansson earned US$15.5 million more than she did in 2018

Her character might have died in the early summer release Avengers: Endgame but Scarlett Johansson rose to top the Forbes' highest-paid actress of 2019 list. Pushed by the success of her Marvel film "Avenger: Endgame", the 34-year-old actor's earning reached Dollars 56 million. Photos from the set of Marvel Studios' upcoming Black Widow reveal the titular character's suit for the film.

But even though Johansson and her cohorts on the list all earned more than $20 million, pay inequality is alive and well in Hollywood. With the popularity, the bank balance too skyrocketed this year and as a result, she has been named the highest-paid actress of the year for the second consecutive year.

For comparison, Robert Downey Jr., Johansson's "Avengers" costar, earned about $55 million for his turn as Iron Man in "Endgame".

Scarlett was followed by Sofia Vergara with $44.1 million earnings and Big Little Lies star Reese Witherspoon with an earning of $35 million. "Big Little Lies" actors Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are placed at the third and fourth spot on the list, with the earning of Dollars 35 million and USD 34 million, respectively. Jennifer Aniston, who earned in Dollars 28 million, rounds out the top five. The former "Friends" star - a show which also featured a guest appearance from Witherspoon - stars in a new series for Apple's on-demand web television service. Next in the line are Kaley Cuoco (USD 25 million), Elisabeth Moss (USD 24 million) and Margot Robbie (USD 23.5 million).

Unfortunately 2018's top 10 paid actresses like Mila Kunis, Cate Blanchett, Melissa McCarthy and Gal Gadot couldn't make it to the list this year.
