Sandra Bullock Is The Highest-Paid Actress In Hollywood
America’s Sweetheart is also its top-earning actress.
Oscar winner Sandra Bullock earned $56 million between June 2009 and June 2010, Forbes Magazine said Tuesday. Sandra earned the ranking as part of the financial mag’s annual ranking of Hollywood’s Top-Earning Actresses. Bullock easily surpassed the next two actresses on the list, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz, who both earned $32 million in the past year. Friends alum Jennifer Aniston came in fourth with $27 million.
Other actress earning nods on the list included Sarah Jessica Parker ($25 million), Julia Roberts ($20 million), Angelina Jolie ($20 million), Drew Barrymore ($15 million), Meryl Streep ($13 million), and Kristen Stewart ($12 million).
For Bullock, the high-earning status capped off a topsy-turvy year dominated by her Academy Award-winning role in The Blind Side, a hit movie for which she had agreed to take a pay cut in return for a share of the profits. Just days after her Oscar win, In Touch Weekly broke the news of her husband’s philandering with tattoo models, and the couple are now divorced. Despite the split Bullock went ahead with plans to adopt a son, Louis.
