Scarlett Johansson Is 2018's Highest Paid Actress in the World

Scarlett Johansson arrives for amfAR’s Annual Fashion Week New York Gala in New York

The figures are just a tad depressing when compared to the top earning actors of the year - George Clooney at $239 million (though this was thanks to the $700 million sale of Casamigos Tequila, rather than earnings from acting) and Dwayne Johnson at $124 million.

Scarlett beat out Angelina Jolie, who ranked second with Dollars 28 million thanks mainly to her upfront pay for Maleficent 2.

The highest paid actresses for this year have been revealed with Scarlett Johansson coming out on top.

Hollywood is teeming with incredible talent, but only one woman can claim the title of highest paid actress, and this year the honour goes to Scarlett Johansson .

Following Jolie is Jennifer Aniston with $19.5 million, Jennifer Lawrence (undisclosed amount), and Reese Witherspoon, who pulled in $16.5 million.

Reese Witherspoon, 42, is at number five with United States dollars 16.5 million. Roberts had huge box office success with Wonder this year as well. There's a comic book super villain in the rankings too: Cate Blanchett, who played Thor's nemesis in last year's Thor: Ragnorak, earned $12.5 million, good enough for eighth place. She earned her spot due to a recent Revlon endorsement and with her salary for the Wonder Woman sequel, set to hit theatres in 2019 titled, Wonder Woman 1984.

Notably absent from this year's list is Emma Stone, who claimed first place last year with $26 million for her Oscar-winning performance in the film La La Land.

Johansson, 33, made $40.5 million, pre-tax, from June 2017 to June 2018, thanks to her role of Black Widow in Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", as well as starring in "Rough Night" and the controversial movie "Ghost in the Shell".
