Nicole Kidman is the queen of Hollywood when it comes to money.
The Oscar winner, who earns as much as $17 million (Ђ12.9 million) per movie, tops the fifth annual list of highest-paid actresses released Wednesday by The Hollywood Reporter.
Kidman, 39, ranked second on last year's list behind four-time top-earner Julia Roberts, who did not make the list this year. She spent time with her 2-year-old twins rather than appear in films, reports AP.
In second place, with $15 million (Ђ11.4 million) per movie, was Reese Witherspoon, 30, who won the best-actress Oscar this year for her performance in "Walk the Line."
Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively. They also get $15 million (Ђ11.4 million) for each film.
Rounding out the top 10 are Halle Berry ($14 million (Ђ10.64 million) ), Charlize Theron ($10 million (Ђ7.6 million) ), Angelina Jolie ($10 million (Ђ7.6 million) ), Kirsten Dunst ($8 million (Ђ6 million) to $10 million (Ђ7.6 million) ) and Jennifer Aniston ($8 million (Ђ6.08 million) ).
The list will appear in the Women in Entertainment Power 100 issue to be published by The Hollywood Reporter on Dec. 5.
