Who are the Richest Actresses in the World?

This post continues from the previous post which was made for the richest actors in the world. It just made sense.

So, down to the question, who are the richest actresses in the world? Some of these actresses are veterans in the businesses having been making movies now for decades, racking up their earnings and net worth over a long period of time.

Others are new to the Hollywood film industry, getting lucky with the right roles paying checks are beyond anything that actresses have ever earned before averaging as much as 20 million dollars per movie.

And then there are the actresses who have played it smart and used their Hollywood fame to not only act in movies but also produce, direct and write scripts for movies.

Not to mention the even more ambitious of the bunch who have set up their own businesses with the likes of production companies, clothing lines, boutique labels and countless other entrepreneurial ventures.

Sum-Up

As with the richest actors in the world, the net worths of the richest actresses in the world is not too different in terms of the comparison of them both, although it is no secret that Hollywood actresses are falling behind fairly substantially when it comes to the paycheques that they receive from films. This being heavily dependant upon the fact that actresses very rarely get the leads in movies, and even when they do there is usually a lead actor to accompany them who gets a heavier dose of screen time.

On the other hand, times are changing and women in Hollywood are finally getting the due rewards as we see the likes of Jennifer Lawrence paving the way for young actresses with her leads in countless movies, the most famous being "The Hunger Games" trilogy which is arguably one of the best fantasy franchises we have seen from the teen market angle.

Then there are actresses like Angelina Jolie who in her prime was demanding top dollar for her performances easily taking in similar amounts of money as her co-workers and husband, Brad Pitt, in the film industry. Many others could be named but it does still feel as though Hollywood is still a man's game to play, but as we are all seeing women are becoming in far greater demand for the leads in movies. It is a slow process, that is for sure.
