Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston Make Hollywood's Highest Paid Actress List

Forbes has revealed Hollywood’s highest paid actresses, and no, quantity doesn’t necessarily match quality.

Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker top the list, each bringing in $30 million between May 2010 and May 2011. Apparently, producers believed people were actually going to sit through Salt.

Alright, alright. Because these two donate so much to charity, I can’t give them too hard of a time. Besides, I think opening weekend of Sex and the City 2 speaks for itself.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon come in third, and at this point, I think it’s safe to take your hand off your mouse, stand up, look at the person next to you and say, “what the f-ck!”

At least Reese Witherspoon attempts to choose decent films that show her acting range. But producers are paying Jennifer Aniston for the same performance over and over. Each of Aniston’s characters could easily be replaced by a boring, middle-aged White woman who laughs nervously. I think I just wrote Just Go With It 2.

Julia Roberts tied with Kristen Stewart as fifth highest-earning women, both raking in $20 million this year. So basically, Julia Roberts could have skipped years of perfecting her craft and just been in a movie about a vampire, and she’d be in the same position she’s in now.

Katherine Heigl, Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep also made the list. Considering I haven't seen or heard of Heigl being in anything this year, I have no clue how Katherine made this list. I'm guessing she sold a house or something.
