According to the Forbes list of the "World's Highest-Paid Celebrities", the highest-earning actress for the year ending 30 June 2015 is Jennifer Lawrence (USA), who took home an estimated $52 million (£33 million). The Hunger Games star is the second highest-earning actor overall in the list, only surpassed by Robert Downey Jr (USA) on $80 million (£50.8 million).
