Life Scarlett Johansson is the best paid actress By WeeklyNews staff Posted on August 24, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Scarlett Johansson is the highest paid actress for the second year in a row. Scarlett raked in 56 million dollars between June last year and this year, American business magazine Forbes calculated. She also led the list last year, but then she had ‘only’ $ 40.5 million on her pay slip. The blonde is thus above Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara ($ 44.1 million) and Reese Witherspoon ($ 35 million). Angelina Jolie, who was just under Scarlett last time, is missing in the top ten this year. Other actresses who this time do not belong to the ten big earners include Mila Kunis, Julia Roberts and Cate Blanchett. Although 34-year-old Scarlett has little to complain about her generous income, there are seven male colleagues who earned more last year. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson caught the most, he saw his bank account grow by no less than 89.4 million dollars. But Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Akshay Kumar, Jackie Chan, Bradley Cooper and Adam Sandler also had a higher salary. Sofia Vergara is the only other actress who would be in the top ten if the lists were mixed.
