Forbes:Angelina Jolie is Hollywood's top-earning actress

Angelina Jolie was Hollywood's top-earning actress over the last year, earning an estimated $27 million between June 2008 and June 2009, according to Forbes annual Celebrity 100 list.

In a statement, the magazine said, "Much of Angelina's earnings came from her share of the profits on 'Wanted', but she also scored a fat upfront check for 'Salt', an action film originally slated to star Tom Cruise, in which Jolie plays a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian spy."
Angelina beat her partner Brad Pitt's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, who came second in the list with earnings of $25 million.

Meryl Streep earned $24 million thanks to last summer's hit Mamma Mia, while Sarah Jessica Parker came in fourth with $23 million for the big-screen debut of Sex and the City.
Cameron Diaz was ranked fifth generating $20 million, while Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock tied for sixth place after making $15 million each.
As usual, the actresses earned significantly less than their male counterparts. This year's top-earning actor Harrison Ford earned $65 million, $38 million more than Angelina.
