For the second year in a row, Scarlett Johansson tops Forbes’ list of highest paid actresses in the world

For the second year in a row, Scarlett Johansson has topped Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actresses, earning $56 million including an eight-figure cheque for her upcoming Black Widow film and an impressive back-end payment of about $35 million for the $2.8 billion-grossing Avengers: Endgame.

Johansson is joined on the list by newcomers Elisabeth Moss and Margot Robbie, as well as returnees likeSofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon. Together, the world’s ten highest-paid actresses tallied a combined $314.6 million between June 1, 2018, and June 1, 2019, before fees and taxes.

That’s 69% more than last year’s cumulative total, but still far less than the top ten actors’ $588.3 million.For the second year in a row, Scarlett Johansson tops Forbes? list of highest paid actresses in the world
