Scarlett Johansson Named Highest-Paid Actress in the World
Scarlett Johansson has topped Forbes’ list of best-paid actresses for a second year – but is only the eighth highest paid actor overall.
The 34-year-old’s income of $56m (£45.7m) lands her below seventh-placed male actor Adam Sandler.
She earned $15.5m (£12.6m) more than she did in 2018, thanks largely to the success of Avengers: Endgame. Modern family actor Sofia Vergara is the only other woman to break into the overall top 10.
