It actually gets better. When she's not busy co-producing films with her husband Ben Falcone, she's decorating her shelves with several Primetime Emmy Awards. Don't forget about her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations either. So, how much does she take to the bank for all her hard work? She has already earned a cool $12 million in 2019 alone. Impressive!

29. Cate Blanchett

No doubt about it, Cate Blanchett is ultra-talented and in super high demand. How did she get to where she is today? Most recently, you can thank her starring roles in Thor: Ragnarok, Oceans 8 and the House with a Clock in Its Walls. Plus, she was absolutely breathtaking in the indie flick Carol.

28. Julia Roberts

Guess what? The pretty woman you know and love from the 90s is currently at the top of her game. Even though her most recent film, Money Monster, didn't make a huge splash, Julia Roberts still has a hefty bank account to soother her injured feelings. Wondering how she stays so wealthy?

26. Jennifer Lawrence

Interesting fact: Jennifer Lawrence has been one of the richest actresses in Hollywood for the last several years in a row.

Although Lawrence wrapped up The Hunger Games franchise four years ago, she has stayed plenty busy with films like Red Sparrow and Mother. Don’t forget about the huge contract she recently landed with Dior either. It's no wonder she has a whopping annual earnings of $18 million in 2019!


25. Ellen Pompeo

Be honest. Who doesn't love Ellen Pompeo from Grey's Anatomy? Now, she consistently adds directing and producing credits to her resume as well. That might explain why she's known as one of the richest actresses on the planet. What are the sources of her wealth?
