ZARZAR MODELS recently released the latest list of the highest paid actresses in the world (the world’s highest paid actresses). The latest list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood (the top earning actresses in the world) covers all actress earnings for the past 12 months (from June 2016 to June 2017) and are approximate based on the leading industry sources including Forbes magazine (one of the most prestigious financial magazines in the world and a leader in financial data analysis). All amounts are in United States Dollars.
Together, the world’s 10 highest paid actresses earned a combined $172.5 million between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017 before fees and taxes. Earnings estimates are pretax and fees and expenses for acting agents, talent managers, and lawyers are not deducted. The list examined actresses from around the world, but no acting stars from Asia made the cut, as actresses Fan Bingbing and Deepika Padukone dropped off due to quieter years.
