Well, we don’t expect Jennifer Lawrence to go hungry anytime soon.
That’s because the Hunger Games star was recently crowned the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, according to Forbes. At only 25 years-old, Lawrence has banked $52 million pre-tax over the last 12 months. But when you look a Lawrence’s resume, it’s not the most surprising news. On top of anchoring the highly-lucrative Hunger Games film franchise, Lawrence also headlines the current slate of X-Men movies as Mystique, and even has an Academy Award to her name.
Coming in as the second highest paid actress was another Marvel Comics familiar, Scarlett Johansson, who, through films such as The Avengers, netted $35.5 million pre-tax over the past 12 months. Melissa McCarthy, who will headline the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, came in third with $23 million to her name.
And with X-Men: Apocalypse, Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2, and Joy all arriving within the next 12 months, we wouldn’t be surprised if Lawrence racked a top spot on Forbes’ list next year.
