Emma Stone dethrones Jennifer Lawrence as world’s highest-paid actress


Emma Stone is this year's highest-paid actress, according to Forbes, banking $26 million pretax in Forbes' 12-month scoring period.

The actress beat Jennifer Aniston, who took the second spot on the list with an earning of $25.5 million, and Jennifer Lawrence, who came in at number three with $24 million.

Aniston, according to the publication, continues to make millions due to films like the upcoming "The Yellow Birds," and endorsement deals with Emirates Airlines, Smartwater and Aveeno. Most of Lawrence's paycheck comes from the upcoming Darren Aronofsky thriller "Mother!" and a longstanding Dior endorsement. Lawrence topped the list of the highest-paid actresses last year.

The majority of Stone's paycheck, according to Forbes, comes from her "La La Land" deal, which also won her a Best Actress Oscar. The film garnered rave reviews and grossed more than $445 million at the global box office. Stone will next be seen in "Battle of the Sexes" opposite Steve Carell.

Stone has spoken out about the gender pay disparity in Hollywood before — last month, she said that some of her male co-stars have taken pay cuts to ensure pay equality.

"That's something they do for me because they feel it's what's right and fair. That's something that's also not discussed, necessarily — that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, 'That's what's fair,'" Stone said. "If my male co-star, who has a higher quote than me but believes we are equal, takes a pay cut so that I can match him, that changes my quote in the future and changes my life."
