The voice of "Meg on Family Guy" scored another successful movie, "Bad Moms Christmas," which grossed $ 130 million with a budget of only $ 28 million.

5. Reese Witherspoon with $16.5 million
Although "A Wrinkle in Time" got some box office failures, Reese Witherspoon earned $ 1 million for "Big Little Lies Season 2". Despite some successes on the screen, Witherspoon's income from theatrical films still accounts for half of her salary, which makes the star one of the top 10 actresses on the list.
4. Jennifer Lawrence with $18 million
The "Hunger Games" actress recently starred in two box-office blockbusters "Mother!" and "Red Sparrow". However, Jenifer Lawrence still holds a large amount of money in hand with the return of the "X-men" series and the contract with the cosmetics-fashion Dior.
3. Jenifer Aniston with $19.5 million
The former star of "Friends" earned a significant boost in revenue thanks to signing contracts with airline brands such as Emirates, Smartwater, and Aveeno.

2. Angelina Jolie with $28 million
