Forbes has released their annual list of Dames To Bow Down To, the most cashed up honeys/actresses in Hollywood, all who achieve the pristine trifecta of talent, personality and offensively large fistfuls of $$$, while single-handedly dismantling the perception that perfection is unattainable, and providing a bitter blow to everyone else who thought they were doing pretty well financially—because last week their tax refund came through and things were looking pretty solid for a while.
The list ranks the ten richest bebs in Hollywood who had a combined income of $182 million in the 2012-2013 financial year collected from appearing in films and TV shows. Gurls got paper.
Despite not starring in a film since 2010, Angelina Jolie put every other penny-grabbing lady in Hollywood to shame by topping the list at $33 million, leaving Jennifer Lawrence humbly behind on a shameful, peasantry salary of $26 million. How the woman lives, I don’t even.
What’s surprising—and saddening for the people that claim all Australian celebrities as their own by attaching a permanent “our” before their name—is that Australia’s truest A grade female actresses are clearly doing it tough after not garnering a single mention on the bragging-rights list. Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett and Naomi Watts play star roles in the highly anticipated upcoming films Grace Of Monaco, Blue Jasmine and Diana respectively; their absence on Forbes’ list is a sign of a fading golden era when Nicole Kidman stole the competition, attracting a $17 million price tag per movie in 2006.
