With the list of men in Hollywood making headlines for their earnings, the women aren't far behind. Here is the list from Forbes.
Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker lead the pack with an estimated earnings of $30 million. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon took home $28 million each. Surprisingly, America's sweetheart, Julia Roberts and a relatively new Kristen Stewart made a total of $20 million, breaking the myth that only established veterans earn well in Hollywood.

Katherine Heigl ($19 million) and Cameron Diaz ($18 million) are next with and Sandra Bullock ($15 million) and Meryl Streep ($10 million) finish off the list. All of these women have a unique and distinctive feature about  them which clicks with the audience and helps their image.    

While there might be fluctuations in the list with new names coming in, Angelina Jolie's stardom and her movies will ensure that she stays right at the top for the next five years at least.
