Jennifer Lawrence Is Highest Paid Hollywood Actress Of 2016

Jennifer Lawrence has, according to the lastest publication on Forbes, taken home $46 million, $13 million ahead of Melissa McCarthy, who earned $33 million and placed second on the list.

It seems that her success this year was all due to the final instalment of The Hunger Games franchise, which took nearly $700 million at the box office, along with her fee for the upcoming film Passengers.

In fact, talking of Passengers, which also stars bae Chris Pratt, it seems that Jennifer had had enough of the inequality when it came to wages in Hollywood between men and women, so she requested the same rate for the highest paid actors and she got it.

You go, girl. Also on Forbes’ list this year included Jennifer Aniston, Amy Adams, and Mila Kunis. Interestingly, only two of the women on Forbes’ top ten list of highest paid actresses are women of color which are Halle Berry and Raven Simone.

It’s great that women like Jennifer Lawrence are doing what they can to shatter the glass ceiling and forcing execs to pay them the same wages that men are getting. We’re SO proud of her.
