Scarlett Johansson is the world's highest-paid actress with $56 million

For the second year in a row, Scarlett Johansson is the world's highest-paid actress.

According to Forbes, the 34-year-old movie star raked in $56 million between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019, before fees and taxes. A big chunk of Johansson's paycheck came from Marvel. She secured an eight-figure sum for her upcoming Black Widow spinoff, which was rumored to be $15 million. She also received a back-end payment for Avengers: Endgame estimated to be around $35 million, per Forbes. (Avengers: Endgame grossed $2.8 billion.)

Coming in second on Forbes's annual list of highest-paid actresses is Sofia Vergara. The Modern Family star earned an estimated $44.1 million. Reese Witherspoon ($35 million), Nicole Kidman ($34 million) and Jennifer Aniston ($28 million) round out the top five. New arrivals on the list are Elisabeth Moss and Margot Robbie, placing seventh and eighth respectively.

While $56 million is quite the accomplishment, the figure would barely crack the top 10 on Forbes's list of highest-paid actors. Johansson would come in at no. 8, behind her Avengers: Endgame co-stars Chris Hemsworth ($76.4 million) and Robert Downey Jr. ($66 million), who land at no. 2 and no. 3 respectively, but ahead of Chris Evans ($43.5 million), who currently occupies the eighth spot. Dwayne Johnson nabbed the top spot with $89.4 million.

Johansson has discussed pay equality before, but said it felt "icky" complaining about her situation as she has been fortunate to earn a great living.

"There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole," she told Cosmopolitan in 2016. "I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage."

"I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious," she added. "It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general."

Forbes estimates earnings based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders.
