Forbes Reveals Its List of the Top 10 Most Bankable Actresses

Forbes Reveals Its Top 10 Best Actresses For the Buck

We know that some actresses in Hollywood have hefty paychecks, but which A-listers bring in the most money for the studios? Forbes just revealed its top 10, and the list includes several unexpected choices.

At No. 1 is Naomi Watts. Are you surprised by the pick? Seems kind of odd — why not the biggest earner of all, Angelina Jolie? — but keep in mind that these are the women who make the best financial investment. (Read: Lower paychecks, higher-grossing movies like King Kong.)

I'm actually glad to see Watts in the lead. She's an underrated actress, and she somehow always manages to stay out of the Hollywood limelight, so it's nice to see her get some recognition.

Who else made the list? A few more of my favorites, so check out the full rundown, and then tell me if you agree with Forbes when you read more.

1. Naomi Watts
2. Jennifer Connelly
3. Rachel McAdams
4. Natalie Portman
5. Meryl Streep
6. Jennifer Aniston
7. Halle Berry
8. Cate Blanchett
9. Anne Hathaway
10. Hilary Swank
