Nicole Kidman has added yet another golden feather in her already crowded crown. ‘The Hours’ actress now tops the list of highest-paid women in Hollywood.
This was disclosed as part of the film industry review conducted by the Hollywood Reporter. She chart-topped the fifth annual list of ‘most-paid females’ by triumphing over other leading actresses including the “quite expensive” Julia Roberts.
The enviable salary package of Nichole Kidman comes to roughly $17 million. She commanded this covetable remuneration for her movie, The Invasion. It was the pay for this movie which made her rise from the previously help second position. Four actresses have taken up the second position from which Kidman has stepped down. They command a ‘not- so- bad package’ of $15 million for each movie. Reese Witherspoon, Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz are those who closely follow Kidman in their per movie remuneration.
Julia Roberts, however, has been topping the paper’s ranking list for the past four years with her record pay of
$20 million per movie. However, her name did not come up even for competition sake as she had taken a break from the screen due to personal reasons. She is presently spending her ‘high-priced time’ to look after her twin babies along with her husband Danny Moder.
Others female actors whose names got featured in the list of ten are Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, Kirsten Dunst and Jennifer Aniston. When Halle Berry makes fourteen dollars by acting in one movie, Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie buys ten million for their performance in a single film. While Jennifer Aniston goes for eight million dollars, the price pay of Kirsten Dunst ranges between eight and ten million dollars. Thus, each of their reel life characters makes these Hollywood stars nothing short than real life millionaires.
