This is What Money Looks Like: Hollywood's Highest Paid Actresses...Is There A Magic Formula?
Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker lead the pack of women racking in the dough Hollywood-style. Gender-transcending movie star Jolie is no surprise (she would easily double her earnings if she said yes to every project she was offered), while Parker's success is due mostly to the Sex and the City franchise and her perfume line.

Trailer Watch: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 1; Bella and Edward Get Married UPDATED
