The star tops Forbes’ list of Highest Earning Actresses, with an estimated $52 million in pre-tax earnings between June 2014 and June 2015. Despite the broader valuations, only one non-American made the list: Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who ranked No. 4 with a $21 million haul.
But while she is definitely far from starvation, Jennifer is also miles away from her male counterpart, Robert Downey Jr. who made million.

Add in her high fashion ad and endorsement for Dior, her Oscar award and cool girl attitude towards anything else which makes her in demand among movie producers and directors, it is no surprise that she’ll earn more than what she had previous year.
Jennifer Lawrence has starred in several movies since a year ago, ranging from “The Hunger Games” trilogy, “X-Men” franchise, “Serena”, “Joy“, and the 2012 controversial film “Silver Linings Playbook“, reported Vanity Fair. Only time will tell, but $21 million is hard to ignore. And while there’s a lot more important stuff in the feminist cause to squabble over than a million dollar wage gap for very wealthy, privileged people, it’s still important that we bring it up.
For her upcoming film Passenger, Lawrence successfully negotiated a $20 million pay check, reportedly double what her co-star Chris Pratt is set to make.
