Sandra Bullock Named Highest Paid Actress

Sandra Bullock’s personal life may have completely sucked in 2010, but her bank account is having the year of its life!

Sandra was just named the highest-paid actress of the year by Forbes magazine. She beat out A-listers like Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston to prove she’s a definite force to be reckoned with.

According to the numbers, Bullock earned $56 million between June 2009 and June 2010. And she has two movies to thank for that: The Proposal, which grossed $320 million, and just a few months later The Blind Side, which earned $310 million.

Reese and Cameron Diaz tie for second place with $32 million a piece, and nowhere near Sandra! Next up we have Jennifer Aniston ($27 million), Sarah Jessica Parker ($25 million), Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie ($20 million), Drew Barrymore ($15 million), Meryl Streep ($13 million) and Kristen Stewart.($12 million).

To figure out actresses' earnings, Forbes talked to agents, managers, producers and lawyers to determine what the stars earned as upfront pay on movies they are currently shooting, as well as back-end pay earned after a movie hit theaters. They also looked at any money actresses might have earned from perfume and clothing lines and from ad campaigns.

Well, done Sandra! At least we know Louis’ college tuition is paid for…
