Emma Stone named world's highest-paid actress in 2017

At the ripe age of 28, Emma Stone is now the highest paid actress in the world.

The star earned $26 million during Forbes' 12 month scoring period, mostly thanks to her role in the Oscar-winning La La Land. The movie-musical, which gave Stone a Best Actress win, earned $445.4 million at the global box office.

Before the Forbes announcement, Stone spoke out about the Hollywood pay gap.

"In my career so far, I've needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that's something they do for me because they feel it's what's right and fair. That's something that's also not discussed, necessarily-that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, "That's what's fair." If my male co-star, who has a higher quote than me but believes we are equal, takes a pay cut so that I can match him, that changes my quote in the future and changes my life," she said in an interview with Out.

How did the rest of the women from the City of Stars fare?

Jennifer Aniston came in at No. 2 with $25.5 million, though most of her income came from endorsements. Jennifer Lawrence, once ranked No. 1, was listed at No. 3 with $24 million. According to Forbes, most of Lawrence's money came from forthcoming projects. Melissa McCarthy made $18 million and Mila Kunis came in at No. 5 with $15.5 million.
