Most paid actresses

"Reese Witherspoon ranked number one on The Hollywood Reporter’s annual list of the highest-paid actresses. The 31-year-old actress commands $15 million to $20 million a movie.

Angelina Jolie came in second, and Cameron Diaz came in third with a $15 million-per-movie requirement.

While Angelina and Reese are now asking for $15 million-$20 million per movie, they frequently agree to “no-quote deals” — deals in which the studios actually pay them far less than their usual fee".

Here’s The Hollywood Reporter’s top ten list:

1. Reese Witherspoon — $15 million-$20 million
2. Angelina Jolie — $15 million-$20 million
3. Cameron Diaz — $15+ million
4. Nicole Kidman — $10 million-$15 million
5. Renee Zellweger — $10 million-$15 million
6. Sandra Bullock — $10 million-$15 million
7. Julia Roberts — $10 million-$15 million
8. Drew Barrymore — $10 million-$12 million
9. Jodie Foster — $10 million-$12 million
10. Halle Berry — $10 million

I think the money hollywood's stars are getting are crazy (noone deserves these amounts!!)
However, Reese has made the studios a lot of money so it's no surprise she asks for a lot too

The problem is how the whole capitalistic system Hollywood is based on and is part of is supported by all of us. How Liz Taylor said, if somebody is such a fool to pay me 1 million $, I'm not going to be a fool and say "no"...
