Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker highest paid actresses
Jolie topped the Forbes list thanks to the worldwide success of her action film “Salt,” which brought in $300 million, and “The Tourist,” which also featured Johnny Depp and earned $280 million at the worldwide box office.
Much of Parker’s hefty earnings comes from reruns of the hit television show “Sex and the City”, which she starred in and produced, and earnings from the second movie which generated $290 million at the global box office.
“People may be surprised to see Sarah Jessica Parker up there but they may not realize that in addition to acting, she earns big from her perfumes and endorsement deals,” said writer Dorothy Pomerantz of Forbes. “‘Sex and the City 2’ [also] turned a healthy profit.”
