Sandra Bullock is Hollywood’s highest paid actress


Sandra Bullock arrives at the 86th Annual Academy Awards

Sandra Bullock has been named Hollywood’s highest-earning actress.

The 50-year-old beauty has topped Forbes’ annual ranking of the highest paid female movie stars after making a reported $51 million between June 2013 and June 2014, which was largely due to her leading role in the Oscar-winning movie ‘Gravity.’

Jennifer Lawrence climbed into second place with an estimated $34 million thanks to her successful role in the ‘Hunger Games’ franchise, while Jennifer Aniston followed closely behind with a reported $31 million.

Gwyneth Paltrow landed in fourth place with an estimated $19 million following her work in ‘Iron Man 3,’ while last year’s top-earner Angelina Jolie found herself in joint fifth place with Cameron Diaz after making an estimated $18 million over the 12-month period.

Scarlett Johansson came sixth with an estimated earning of $17 million, while Amy Adams and Natalie Portman came joint seventh with $13 million.

Kristen Stewart finished off the list in last place after making an estimated $12 million over the past year.

Meanwhile, the list also drew attention to the fact that men are still earning more than women in Hollywood as the top 10 actors – which included the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper – earned a total of $419 million, while the women made just over half that with a combined total of $226 million.

The top 10 list of highest paid actresses in 2014 are as follows:

1. Sandra Bullock – $51 million

2. Jennifer Lawrence – $34 million

3. Jennifer Aniston – $31 million

4. Gwyneth Paltrow – $19 million

5. Angelina Jolie – $18 million

5. Cameron Diaz – $18 million

6. Scarlett Johansson – $17 million

7. Amy Adams – $13 million

7. Natalie Portman – $13 million

8. Kristen Stewart – $12 million

    Tricky situation indeed….. a student, a player at Mwamba RFC, a player at the national team. How do you jungle the liver???. But the guy is just smart and awesome….. Resolve the issue amicably.

    Kwani who does he think he is??? The team is bigger than his ego and can and will continue without him,discipline has to be enforced , for me this is the beginning of the end of his career.

    • Duncan Muchina

      No. The guy is good but it’s not clear what disciplinary crimes he committed. He also must be heard. He says he reported but was told to go away since Mwamba had already suspended him. What Injera needs to do as soon as he reads this is to go to Mike Friday, apologize and hope for the best. Whites are more rigid than us. Hong Kong Is not the only tournament. More are coming. Salvage your career young man!

    I have never had reason to believe Injera as nothing other than a disciplined young man, clearly the response of the Union and Mwamba was harsh in the extreme..REINSTATE HIM IMMEDIATELY

  • I think Injera over-committed himself and should have made the decision instead of having the decision made for him!!!

  • if its a matter of indiscipline, by all means punish Injera. But the Kenya Rugby Union should not put the 7’s members in a situation where they have to choose between national duty and club. Give those selected 7’s team a permanent binding contract that they would be purely concentrate on the national duty. the binding contract which would mean that they are professional should or rather MUST also be able to put food on the table and not just for the games they play. It is only fair if we are going to ask for 110% from the players that we at least support them.

    So Injera, Horace and Ombachi have been suspended by Mwamba RFC. The query we’d like the answer to is where were they causing them to fail to honor the club game? And would have they been suspended if Mwamba won the game? The Union should look into this.

    Sports in Kenya and especially Rugby is played for the love of the game and not the money, our boys should be commended and not punished.

    Mike Friday, I salute you for how far you’ve managed to bring the team.

    • It’s important if you first got your facts right as to why the didn’t turn up for club rugby! You will understand Injera’s situation. Mike Friday and Mwamba chairman, started these wrangles first, publicly portraying their differences on how to handle players.

  • mkenya_uno

    Injera was suspended from Mwamba for not playing for them during the Kenya Cup and in a way cost them a place in the finals. This has not gone down well with the Mwamba fraternity.
    Mwangi Muthee owns Mwamba and being the chairman of KRU, he has extended that bile. This Muthee guy is ruining rugby. My advice to Injera; join another club like Quins, Impala or Nondies.
