Looking for the World’s Highest Paid Actresses? Check Out This List

Sep 28, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

While most average people would love to “suffer” through million dollar paychecks, the substantial wage gap between Hollywood’s top paid actors and actresses was evident when Forbes released the list of the highest paid actresses of 2015.

Jennifer Lawrence topped the list by raking in $52 million pre-tax over 12 months — $16.5 million more than second-ranked Scarlett Johansson, who earned $35.5 million — but still substantially less than Robert Downey Jr.’s leading $80 million paycheck in 2015.

All in all, the world’s 18 highest-paid actresses earned a combined $281 million before taxes and fees – $660 million less than the 34 world’s highest-paid actors, who earned a cumulative $941 million.

But, with all that said, let’s take a look at the actresses who did top the list.

Sep 14, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

What extremes would you go to for your job?

Most of us would be never be asked to gain or lose a ridiculous amount of weight in a short period of time, but if you’re an actor or actress in Hollywood, that’s just part of the job.

And for some looking to truly suffer for their art and epitomize a role, that means taking their body to the extreme in ways that the average person would never (and probably should never) dream of.

Including one who gained 60 pounds only to be fired and replaced in a film…

Christian Bale

For his role in The Machinist, Christian Bale drastically dropped down to 121 pounds — losing 63 pounds in four months — before doctors told him to stop because they thought he was near death.
