Angelina Jolie tops list of Hollywood's highest paid actresses

Angelina Jolie is the Hollywood's highest paid actress of 2013.

She is the proud mother of six children, an Oscar winner, a humanitarian worker and now Angelina Joliecan add the accolade of being Hollywood’s highest paid actress of 2013 to her list of achievements.

Despite not having appeared in a film since The Tourist alongside Johnny Depp in 2010, Forbes has revealed that the 38-year-old beauty earned $33 million, $13 million more than the previous year.

Angelina has been in the public eye in recent months following her preventative double mastectomy earlier this year. In a powerful article that she wrote for the New York Times, the brunette actress revealed her brave decision to opt for surgery after learning that carried a faulty gene making her susceptible to breast or ovarian cancer.

"Her revelation sparked plenty of debate and showed again why Jolie is one of the most powerful women in Hollywood," Forbes said.

As a special envoy for the United Nations, Angelina is known for using her high-profile celebrity status to make people aware of humanitarian issues. She paid a visit to Syrian refugees in a Jordanian military camp in June to raise the profile of the cause. 

At just 22, Jennifer Lawrence took second place on the list having earned $26 million Oscar-winning performance in Silver Linings Playbook and starring in the 2012 box office hit The Hunger Games, despite only earning less than $1 million for her role. "As Katniss, Lawrence has shown that action heroes don't always have to be played by men for a film to turn a profit," said the magazine. 

One year her senior, Kristen Stewart, who amassed around $22 million over the last year for her roles in the Twilight saga and Snow White and the Huntsman, is third on the list.

Jennifer Aniston takes fourth place banking $20 million in earnings from 2012, while Emma Stone has risen to fifth place with $16 million.
