2) Jennifer Lawrence – $34 Million
This 23-year old actress is proving that women can be as big a draw for blockbusters as men. She received three nominations and won one award. Her movie “The Hunger Games” is the most successful young adult franchise since “Twilight.”
1) Sandra Bullock – $51 Million
Thanks to the blockbuster movie “Gravity,” Sandra Bullock earned more than any other actress in the given period. She deserves the credit for the movie’s success. Her gripping performance as Ryan Stone contributed significantly to the movie’s success.
Despite Sandra Bullock’s impressive showing, women earn less than men in Hollywood. Last year, the top 10 earning actors brought in $419 million while the top 10 actresses brought in $226 million.
