Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker topped the list of highest paid actresses, according to Forbes magazine, earning $30m each.
The top 10 highest-paid actresses earned a total of $218m between May 2010 and May 2011.
Jolie starred in two big-budget films in 2010, Salt and The Tourist. The latter, in which she starred alongside Johnny Depp, initially performed poorly in the US but went on to make $280m worldwide.
Parker made most of her money from Sex and the City – through re-runs of the show and the second movie in the franchise which came out in 2010, and, despite a poor critical reception, earned $290m.
Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon shared third place, while last year's highest earner Sandra Bullock dropped to ninth. Meryl Streep fell from ninth to 10th place.
