And The World’s Highest Paid Actress & Actor of 2016 Is…

*Drumroll please*

Jennifer Lawrence and Dwayne the Rock Johnson!

The Hunger Games start look the number 1 spot on the list of highest paid actresses for the second year in a row, according to Forbes.

Lawrence raked in $46 million dollars before taxes for the 2016 year. She’s down about 11.5% from 2015 where she made $52 million.

Chicago-native Melissa McCarthy took the second spot with $33 million.

For the first time ever, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone makes the top 10 in 10th place with $10 million.

The gender gap for actresses and actors is quite high however.

Women only make about 79cents to a mans dollar, which is unfair.

If you add up the earnings of all the top 10 actresses you get $205 million.

When you do it for men, you get $457 million… more than DOUBLE!

Lawrence’s earnings would land her in 6th place on the Highest Paid Actors List.

The Rock leads the mens list with $64 million followed by Jackie Chan at $61 million.
