Despite Angelina Jolie's last film, The Tourist, having been released three years ago and underperforming, the actress has still topped Forbes' list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood between June 2012 and June 2013, with an estimated $33 million (£21.6m) in the past year. Incredibly, her last year's salary is $13 million (£8.5m) more than the previous year and millions ahead of this year's second highest paid actress, Jennifer Lawrence, who starred in the Hunger Games and won an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook.

Twilight actress Kristen Stewart came third in the list of highest paid actresses, having earned $22 million (£14.4m) this year after topping the list last year. The blockbuster actress is looking to scale down her movie roles after the infamous Vampire saga, focussing on smaller roles such as in On the Road.

Since The Tourist, in which she starred alongside Johnny Depp, Jolie has lent her voice to Kung Fu Panda and made her directorial debut campaigning for a charitable cause that she feels strongly about. In The Land of Blood and Honey (2011) not only marked Jolie's first output behind the camera but the Bosnian war movie highlights sexual violence in war zones. The philanthropic 38 year-old uses her position as special envoy for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees to speak at special screening events all over the world.

It's been a tough year for Jon Voight's daughter: after discovering she carried the BRCA1 gene (breast cancer) she made the difficult decision to undergo a double mastectomy, choosing to break the news to the world in a frank and controversial New York Times article.

Currently in Japan with husband Brad Pitt and three of her six children to promote Pitt's zombie thriller, World War Z, the brave actress will mark her return to screens as an actress next year in the children's fairytale follow-up to Sleeping Beauty, Malificent.
