Witherspoon Tops Rich List

WALK THE LINE star REESE WITHERSPOON is officially the highest-paid actress in the business. The 31-year-old Oscar winner has beaten the likes of Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz and Nicole Kidman to claim the number one spot in the Hollywood Reporter's annual female rich list - receiving a staggering $15-$20 million (GBP7.5-GBP10 million) paycheck per picture. Tomb Raider star Jolie, 32, comes in second, though her salary for the current Beowulf picture was said to be a "mere" $8 million (GBP4 million). Diaz, 35, is placed third, with a $15 million (GBP7.5 million)-per-movie salary demand, though her take-home earnings from the most recent Shrek installment are pegged at a very healthy $30 million (GBP15 million). Last year's number two, Nicole Kidman, 40, fell to fourth place, with an asking price of $10 million (GBP5 million) to $15 million (GBP7.5 million) a film. Also in the $10 million (GBP5 million) to $15 million (GBP7.5 million) club are Renée Zellweger, Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts, despite an absence from the screen since 2004. The full list is: 3. Cameron Diaz - $15+ million (GBP7.5 million+) 5. Renee Zellweger - $10 million-$15 million (GBP5 million - GBP7.5 million) 6. Sandra Bullock - $10 million-$15 million (GBP5 million - GBP7.5 million) 7. Julia Roberts - $10 million-$15 million (GBP5 million - GBP7.5 million) 8. Drew Barrymore - $10 million-$12 million (GBP5 million - GBP6 million) 9. Jodie Foster - $10 million-$12 million (GBP5 million - GBP6 million) 10. Halle Berry - $10 million (GBP5 million)
