She was the 2nd last year. But as of this year, Nicole Kidman claims the top spot on the Hollywood Reporter's 5th annual list of Highest-Paid Actresses. The Aussie movie star bested last year's top-earner Julia Roberts who unfortunately doesn't make the list this year after becoming a four-time top-earner.
Kidman, who earns as much as $17 million per movie, is currently playing photographer Diane Arbus in the independently produced film "Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus". On the 2nd position of the list is Reese Witherspoon, who earns $15 million per movie. Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz are all placed 3rd to 5th respectively, with income of also $15 million for each film.
Rounding out the top 10 are Halle Berry ($14 million), Charlize Theron ($10 million), Angelina Jolie ($10 million), Kirsten Dunst ($8 million to $10 million) and Jennifer Aniston ($8 million). The list will appear in the Women in Entertainment Power 100 issue to be published by The Hollywood Reporter on Dec. 5.
