Who are the highest-paid actresses in the world? Scarlett Johansson is the highest-paid actress in the world for the third year in a row, according to the annual ranking published by Forbes magazine.
Johansson, 34, earned $ 15.5 million more in 2018, mainly due to the immense global success of “Avengers: Endgame,” the final chapter of the saga. The actress will return to the cape of the “Black Widow” (Black Widow) again in 2020 for a ‘spin-off’ film of the same name.
But even though Johansson and her cohorts on the list made more than $ 20 million, wage inequality lives on in Hollywood. Johansson earned a total of $ 56 million last year, but that amount ranks eighth on the combined list of highest-paid actors and actresses.
For comparison, Robert Downey Jr., Johansson’s “Avengers” co-star, made about $ 55 million for his role as Iron Man in “Endgame.”
