Stone, 28, received the Oscar for best actress for her performance in that feature, which managed to raise $445.3 million in theaters and has led to its best year in terms of economic benefits.

In second place on Forbes' list is Jennifer Aniston, who follows Stone up close with $ 25.5 million. Jennifer Lawrence dropped from the top spot to the third this year, with $24 million, from her films "Mother!" And "Red Sparrow", and also her advertising contract with Dior.

Off the podium were fourth-place comedian Melissa McCarthy, with $18 million, and Mila Kunis, with 15.5, in fifth position.

In the sixth place they tied two actresses with $14 million dollars each: the South African Charlize Theron and the British Emma Watson, the only one that this year is part of the list for the first time.

Complete the top ten positions Australian Cate Blanchett and Julia Roberts, both with $12 million dollars, and Amy Addams, with $11.5 million dollars.

These top 10 paid actresses earned $172.5 million from June 1st, 2016 to June 1st, 2017.

The success of these actresses can be considered "extraordinary", said the magazine, considering that the female characters make up only 28.7% of the roles played in the cinema, reveals a study of 2016.
