Scarlett Johansson is highest paid actress for 2018

Scarlett Johansson is highest paid actress for 2018

Johansson takes over the top spot from previous holder, Emma Stone, who held the title past year after earning $26 million.

It has been reported that Scarlett Johansson is the highest paid actress in Hollywood, earning $40.5 million from June 1st, 2017 to June 1st, 2018. Last year, Mark Wahlberg led the pack with US$68 million thanks to his pay days for movies "Daddy's Home 2" and "Transformers: The Last Knight". "But that's okay because [the actors] are the best effects". Aniston made most of her cash this year from endorsement deals with Emirates airlines, Smartwater, and Aveeno, proving that some commercial campaigns are well-worth the money for the actress.

It's safe to say Marvel's Avengers films have played a nice part in her earnings, and it's not stopping there are as the 33-year-old has landed her own stand-alone Black Widow movie - set for release in 2019. There's serious money to be made in advertising, after all, which helps explain why Jennifer Lawrence managed to clinch fourth despite her two most recent titles - namely Mother! and Red Sparrow - struggling to leave much of an impression at the box office. Overall, the cumulative total is up 16% from $172.5 million in 2017.

Avenatti also dismissed reports that an "insider" said Daniels quit after demanding extra money. Trump has vehemently denied the allegation.

#4 is X-Men star Jennifer Lawrence who commands a high coin for the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix flick and brought in $18 million.

Gal Gadot was the only newcomer to make the list this year, taking the 10th spot. Helping Johansson take the number one spot was the worldwide box office smash Infinity War. That lack of roles means that there are fewer opportunities for female stars to earn big bucks. Notably absent: Amy Adams, Emma Watson, Charlize Theron and last year's top-ranked Emma Stone, who all failed to earn above the $10 million cut off for this year's list and dropped off the ranking. Just two women surpassed $20 million, compared with three in 2017 and four in 2016.
