Jennifer Lawrence earns big in 2016

Jennifer Lawrence finds herself in a familiar spot.

For the second year in a row, Lawrence was named the world’s highest-paid actress by Forbes magazine.

The “Hunger Games” star, earned $46 million (USD) before taxes over 12 months, in part from a big upfront fee for the forthcoming movie “Passengers.”

However, the magaizne noted Lawrence’s estimated payday is likely well below that for Hollywood’s leading men.

Melissa McCarthy is laughing all the way to the bank in the second spot, with $33 million in earnings, up $10 million from her estimate for the year before, in part from her payday for the reboot of “Ghostbusters.”

And although down 29.6 percent from last year, Scarlett Johansson takes the third spot with $25 million.

Also included on the list is Jennifer Aniston with $21 million, while Julia Roberts walks away with $12 million and the eighth spot.

Bollywood star Deepika Padukone is the only newcomer to the list, settling in the tenth spot, with $10 million.
