Angelina Jolie has topped a new list of highest-earning actresses — earning $2 million more than her partner Brad Pitt‘s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston last year.
Jolie banked $27 million in the last 12 months, according to Forbes magazine.
The bulk of the Tomb Raider star’s 2008/2009 income reportedly came from her share of the profits from her action film Wanted and her paycheck for new film Salt.
Marley & Me and new film The Baster swelled Aniston’s fortunes, and put her in second place on the new Forbes list.
Aniston also still earns big cash from reruns of Friends.
Meryl Streep came in third and Sarah Jessica Parker and Cameron Diaz round out the new top five.
Forbes tallied the actress’ film payments and cash they made from clothing brands, perfumes and other sources to come up with the list.
