Second on the list is Jennifer Lawrence, whose huge year brought her $26 million. She not only won the Best Actress Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook," but also toplined "The Hunger Games." Though she was paid under $1 million for the $690 million-earning franchise starter, her price was bumped for the upcoming "Catching Fire." She also has "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in the hopper.

Kristen Stewart is third with $22 million. This is the fourth time for Stewart on the Forbes list, though they mention it might be her last for a while, with cashcow "Twilight" now over.

Jennifer Aniston is in fourth place with $20 million, with Forbes crediting "Friends" as the gift that keeps giving. Emma Stone is in fifth place with $16 million, thanks to the "Amazing Spider-Man" reboots.
