Emma Stone is this year’s highest-paid actress, according to Forbes, banking $26 million pretax in Forbes’ 12-month scoring period.
The actress beat Jennifer Aniston, who took the second spot on the list with earnings of $25.5 million, and Jennifer Lawrence, who came in at number three with $24 million. Lawrence had topped Forbes’ ranking two years in a row, last year making $46 million.
Aniston, according to the publication, continues to make millions due to films like the upcoming “The Yellow Birds,” and endorsement deals with Emirates Airlines, Smartwater and Aveeno. Most of Lawrence’s paycheck comes from the upcoming Darren Aronofsky thriller “Mother!” and a longstanding Dior endorsement.
The majority of Stone’s paycheck, according to Forbes, comes from her “La La Land” deal, which also won her a Best Actress Oscar. The film garnered rave reviews and grossed more than $445 million at the global box office. Stone will next be seen in “Battle of the Sexes” opposite Steve Carell.
