Jennifer Lawrence Is the World's Highest Paid Actress of 2016

‘The Hunger Games’ star lands a no. 7 spot on the male-dominated chart.

Following Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list released earlier this year, Screen Rant now compiles a list of the top 16 highest paid actors for 2016. Earning a no. 7 spot at $46 million USD, Jennifer Lawrence is currently the highest-grossing actress. At the top of the list sees Kevin Hart, who has reaped $87.5 million USD this year. Hart is immediately followed by Dwayne Johnson at $64.5 million USD.

Apart from Lawrence, the male-dominated chart boasts only three other actresses: Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez and Melissa McCarthy. Needless to say, there is still a lot to be done to achieve gender equality within the entertainment industry. You can view the entire list below.
