Angelina Jolie is estimated to have made $30 million in the last year, making her one of the highest-paid actresses in Tinseltown! Can YOU believe she beat out Jennifer Aniston and ‘Twilight’ starlet Kristen Stewart?

Much to Jennifer Aniston‘s dismay, she’s lost yet another battle against her arch nemesis, Angelina Jolie! Forbes released its annual “Highest-Paid Actresses” list and Miss Jolie topped the chart after making an estimated $30 million in the last year. She even beat out young adult queen, Kristen Stewart!

The top 10 highest-paid actresses in Hollywood are as follows:

1. Angelina Jolie, $30 million
1. Sarah Jessica Parker, $30 million
3. Jennifer Aniston, $28 million
3. Reese Witherspoon, $28 million
5. Julia Roberts, $20 million
5. Kristen Stewart, $20 million
7. Katherine Heigl, $19 million
8. Cameron Diaz, $18 million
9. Sandra Bullock, $15 million
10. Meryl Streep, $10 million

Thanks to big budget action films like Salt and The Tourist (which did exceedingly well overseas), Angelina, 36, is considered one of — if not, the — most in demand actress in the world. SJP seems like a wild card, but thanks to Sex and the City, she’s sitting pretty…especially when you factor in sales from her beauty lines. Meanwhile, Jen An, 42, hasn’t starred in a critically-acclaimed film in what feels like a very long time, but her movies typically bring in big bucks in the box office. At 21, Kristen is by far the youngest of the litter — but her star is rising quickly, thanks to the mega-success of the Twilight Saga.

Are YOU surprised Angelina Jolie is number one in Hollywood? Who on the list shocked you most? Sound off below!
