Jennifer Lawrence Becomes The World’s Highest Paid Actress, Deepika Padukone Placed 10th


Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence acquired the top position in the Forbes magazine list of the world’s highest paid actresses. She tops the list for the second consecutive year by earning around $46 million. Melissa McCarthy comes at the second place. Bollywood star Deepika Padukone is the only newcomer featuring in the list having $10 million earnings to her credit. As stated by Forbes, Lawrence aged 26 got the top slot due to the slice of profits from the final movie in the Hunger Games franchise along with a big upfront fee for her upcoming space adventure movie Passengers.


Yet estimated payday of Lawrence was likely well below that of leading men of Hollywood, as reported by Forbes, in spite of the actress kicking off a debate about the gender pay gap last year. She stated that she was “finished being adorable” when it came to negotiating better deals for herself.
