Its Official! Angelina Jolie is Hollywood's Highest Paid Actress

You don't get touted as one of the most beautiful and talented actresses in the business, have the United Nation's Secretary-General on speed dial and parade one of Hollywood's hottest leading men as a partner  and not wind up on top of the pack, its against the laws of moviedom!

Now Angelina may have broken a few other rules in the past (hint: she had a co-star who was married at the time as partner in crime) but when it comes to her craft, Angelina is all pro and very much in demand and that's exactly what's landed her to the top of the highest earning actresses list with a tidy $33 million earned between June 2012 and June 2013. This is inspite of the fact that the beautiful actress has not actually acted in any movie (the last being the lackluster ''The Tourist'') since 2010! That's right, Angie has so much star power that even with the fact that she hasn't had a movie in theaters in 3 years, she still raked in $33 million according to Forbes magazine.  Angelina was reportedly paid $15 million to star in «Maleficent,» a revisionist version of «Sleeping Beauty» told from the point-of-view of the drowsy princess' magical foe which would be out in 2014, she's also had a $10 million endorsement deal as face of luxury line, Louis Vuitton. She also been busy behind the scenes directing her debut feature film ''In the Land of Blood and Honey'' and ''Unbroken'' which will hit theaters in December 2014.

Next on the list is Hollywood's new It-girl, Jennifer Lawrence who raked in an impressive $26 million for a newbie. Jennifer had an incredibly successful break-out year nabbing the Oscar for her role in «Silver Linings Playbook» as well as getting splashed across theaters worldwide for her role as Katniss Everdeen in «The Hunger Games». With the next Hunger Games movie in the works and a role in the «X-Men: Days of the Future Past», Jennifer is poised to hang around the list for a while.

With the huge success of the Twilight series, its no surprise that Kristen Stewart is third on the list. The former squeeze of co-star Robert Pattinson made $22 million in the fiscal year also taking int to account her role in the blockbuster «Snow White and the Huntsman». Critics however state that with the Twilight series over, Kristen's future in the big league is not quite certain.

Other top-earning actresses for the year 2013 include:

4. Jennifer Aniston - $20 million

5. Emma Stone - $16 million

6. Sandra Bullock - 14 million

7.  Natalie Portman - $14 million

8.  Charlize Theron - $11 million

9. Mila Kunis - $11 million

10. Julia Roberts - $11 million
