Before you head out to see the latest movie blockbuster this summer, check out Forbes' list of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses based on estimated earnings between June 2013 and June 2014.
No. 10: Kristen Stewart ($12 million)
With "Twilight" (pictured) in the past, Stewart is focused on moving past the role of Bella with upcoming films like "American Ultra" with Jesse Eisenberg and "Still Alice" with Julianne Moore.
No. 8 (tie): Amy Adams ($13 million)
Adams earned his fifth Oscar nomination for her role in "American Hustle," and entered the comic book world with her turn as Superman's love interest, Lois Lane, in this year's Superman reboot "Man of Steel."
No. 8: (tie) Natalie Portman ($13 million)
Although Portman took some time off she returned in a big way with the superhero sequel "Thor: The Dark World," which was a bigger hit than the first movie, earning $645 million at the global box office.
No. 7: Scarlett Johansson ($17 million)
She's been in the public eye since 1998's "The Horse Whisperer," but this is the first time Johansson has cracked Forbes' highest-paid list. That's due in large part to her recurring roles as Black Widow in the Marvel movies, as well as lucrative endorsement gigs.
No. 6: Cameron Diaz ($18 million)
Critics tore apart her recent movie, "The Other Woman," and Sony barely marketed it, but women came in droves and it earned $190 million at the global box office. It cost just $40 million to produce. Her 2011 film "Bad Teacher" also surprised with an amazing $216 million globally.
No. 5: Angelina Jolie ($18 million)
Jolie's face hadn't appeared on a movie screen since 2010's "Salt" and "The Tourist." But she made up for her time away with a big pay day for Disney's "Maleficent," a new spin on the Sleeping Beauty story released in July 2014.
No. 4: Gwyneth Paltrow ($19 million)
Paltrow's recurring role as Robert Downey Jr's girlfriend in the "Iron Man" franchise is where she earns her big bucks, but she also earns endorsement money from brands like Max Factor and Hugo Boss. And let's not forget her lifestyle website, Goop.
No. 3: Jennifer Aniston ($31 million)
Aniston has more recently starred in more low-key roles and movies like "Horrible Bosses" and "We're the Millers" (pictured), but she makes plenty of money from her endorsement deals with Vitamin Water and Aveeno skin care. She also still earns money from endless reruns of "Friends."
No. 2: Jennifer Lawrence ($34 million)
With three Oscar nominations and one win, Lawrence has become one of the most powerful actresses in Hollywood. It doesn't hurt to have a franchise like "The Hunger Games" under your belt either. It's become the most successful young adult franchise since "Twilight."
No. 1: Sandra Bullock ($51 million)
Bullock was a big reason that Warner Bros. had a huge hit with last year's "Gravity." The space thriller cost $100 million to produce and featured dazzling special effects, but it was Bullock's gripping performance as Ryan Stone that anchored its success. It also earned her an Oscar nomination.
While plenty of awards were dished out at the 42nd American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California, on Nov. 23, 2014, most viewers were more interested in the variety of the performers and the showmanship they brought to the stage.
