Angelina Jolie wasn’t even in any movies that came out within the last year, but she still tops Forbes’ list of 100 Most Powerful Actresses this year. Although she hasn’t appeared on the big screen, Angelina’s been hard at work on the film Maleficent, for which she got a massive upfront pay. She’s also managed to stay in the spotlight due to her recent op-ed piece in the New York Times, sharing the story of her preventive double mastectomy.
Coming in at number 2 is a fairly new presence on Forbes’ list, Jennifer Lawrence, who had a huge year with roles in The Hunger Games and her Oscar-winning performance in Silver Linings Playbook. After her big year, it’s no surprise that she skyrocketed to the top of the list, right?!
Are you surprised at any of the ladies’ places?
