Jennifer Lawrence is The World’s Highest-Paid Actress of 2015 according to Forbes. Their international list measures money earned from June 1, 2014 to June 1, 2015 before subtracting management fees and taxes; figures are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers and lawyers.
Jennifer Lawrence earns more than any other actress thanks to her signature role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games trilogy. Those films proved Lawrence’s box office brawn as a female action hero and helped her negotiate a very favorable share of the more recent films’ profits. Outside Panem, Lawrence is reuniting with her Silver Linings Playbook costar, Bradley Cooper, for the comedic drama Joy. Lawrence supplements her silver screen income with a lucrative Dior contract.
