Scarlett Johansson tops highest-paid actress list for 2018

Scarlett Johansson topped the list which also featured Jennifer Aniston and Gal Gadot

The rest of the top 10 were Mila Kunis, Cate Blanchett, Melissa McCarthy and Gal Gadot.

Emma Stone earned the top spot on last year's highest paid actresses list - which, remarkably, didn't even feature Johansson - but didn't make it into this year's top ten.

The amount was her total earnings before taxes from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018.

Scarlett Johansson also has a solo Black Widow movie in development at Marvel, said to be a prequel taking place before the first The Avengers movie.

While the actress has often found herself in controversy - via her Ghost in the Shell and Rub & Tug casting - Johansson's role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven to be gainful for the actress.

Next to Johansson is Angelina Jolie, who returned to the rankings through her payout of $28 million for Disney's "Maleficent 2". According to Forbes, which generated the list, this is less to do with her acting earnings than with endorsements for brands such as Emirates, SmartWater and Aveeno. She claims fourth place with $18 million for her role in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix as well as her contract with Dior.

After Johansson, Angelina Jolie had the second highest earnings for an actress over the previous year.

Reese Witherspoon, 42, is at number five with United States dollars 16.5 million.

Jennifer Lawrence tailed behind in at number four with Reese Witherspoon just behind her with $16.5 million (£14 million) from recent success in producing and starring in Big Little Lies.

Johansson takes over the top spot from previous holder, Emma Stone, who held the title a year ago after earning $26 million.
