Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston richest women in Hollywood

Tbd-angelinajolie070309.jpg Forbes just released its list of top female moneymakers in Hollywood, and Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston take first and second place. Hanging around with Brad Pitt sure does make you rich.

The list, not to be confused with the recent most-powerful compilation Forbes released, says Jolie raked in $27 million from June 2008 to June 2009, mostly from global box office from Wanted and an advance on Salt. Aniston came up with $25 million. That SmartWater deal and residuals from Friends are really working out for Jen -- oh and Marley & Me.

Tbd-jenniferaniston070309 Meryl Streep was third with $24 million, Sarah Jessica Parker topped $23 million, just in time for her new twins to get in the will.

The rest of the Top 10 includes Cameron Diaz ($20 million), Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon (both with $15 million), Nicole Kidman and Drew Barrymore ($12 million each) and Renee Zellweger ($10 million). Too bad Harrison Ford's $65 million topper for last month's men's list could buy and sell them all.
