Cameron Diaz is Only Making $10 Million a Film Now: The Actress Salary Report


The Hollywood Reporter is taking a look at what kinda dough today’s top actresses command. (Hint: less than men.)

Scan the top-grossers of 2009 to date, and it’s not until you get to No. 11, Sandra Bullock’s “The Proposal,” that an A-list female-starrer enters the list.

Because of that, the studios are routinely forcing talent to cut their quotes. “Angelina Jolie and Will Smith are the only two stars who are still getting their price,” one insider says.

Actresses who just a few years ago were considered $15 million players are now in flux.

Yep, the only two actresses who¬† haven’t lowered their quotes are Angelina Jolie and Will Smith, girlfriend.

Some shockers: Katherine Heigl pulls down $12 mil per. Kate Hudson makes seven. If you are a Kate Hudson fan, I demand you leave a comment proving you exist, and what movies of hers you enjoy.

    No shocker at all about Heigl – her last 3 movies have all been good hits on modest budgets. Even the critically derided Ugly Truth has gross over $200 million worldwide on a budget of less than $40m. Also since she has been in the top 5 highest grossing movie actresses for the past two years and is the highest paid actress on TV I would say it is more of a certainty than a shocker.

    You make sense. I guess I’m just surprised to see her leap over her peers so quickly.
