Did you guess correctly? Well, Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker have shot straight to the top of this year's highest earning actress ranks, according to the annual Forbes magazine poll.

The pair have tied for first place, taking home a staggering $30million each between May 2010 and May 2011.

While neither of the stars' big blockbusters were received with entirely rave reviews from critics, Angelina's film The Tourist grossed £280million at the box office, while SJP's Sex and the City 2 raked in an impressive $290million.
