Emma Stone is the Highest-Paid Actress of 2017
Earning $26 million in the past year, Emma Stone is at the top of Forbes' Highest-Paid Actresses of 2017 list.
Emma Stone has been living out the dreams of La La Land the past several years by starring in some of Hollywood’s biggest films and winning her first Oscar -- and now the starlet has become the highest-paid actress of 2017.
On Thursday (Aug. 17) Forbes revealed their list of highest-paid actresses, seeing 28-year-old Stone at the top of the list, having earned $26 million pretax in the past 12 months. According to Forbes, much of Stone’s past year earnings can be attributed to the success of her recent film, award-winner La La Land, which earned $445.3 million at the box office.
Followed by Stone is Jennifer Aniston at No. 2, who made $25.5 million last year from her work starring in a number of movies and major endorsement campaigns such as Aveeno, Emirates airlines, and Smartwater. Other major stars on the list include Jennifer Lawrence ($24 Million), Melissa McCarthy ($18 million), and Mila Kunis (15.5).
Though Stone portrayed barista-aspiring-actress Mia in last year’s major movie musical film, it looks like she is well adjusted to the "City of Stars."
