As Forbes explains, Bullock's wealth is all down to the space thriller Gravity, which picked up seven Academy Awards, seven Baftas and pulled in $716 million at the box office worldwide "despite the odds," against it.
However, 23-year-old Lawrence wasn't far behind Bullock in the rich list. She earned $34 million in 2014, $20 million of which came from her role in the The Hunger Games franchise. With the latest instalment, Mockingjay Part 1, in the making, it doesn't look like Lawrence is going to drop from the number two spot any time soon.
Jennifer Aniston, who earned $31 million last year, was ranked next in third place (the former Friends star can be thankful the show's re-runs are still so popular) after We're the Millers took $150 million at the box office.
As for the richest actor? Robert Downey Jr was named the highest earning of 2013 for the second year running. His estimated earnings are a staggering $75 million but there's good news! There are now more female billionaires than ever before.
