Jennifer Lawrence isn’t just the BFF you wish you had, she’s also the highest paid woman in Hollywood and therefore rich as hell. According to Forbes, JLaw banked $52 million pre-tax in 2014, which is no small chunk of change. She’s miles ahead of Scarlett Johansson, who’s in the number two spot with $35.5 million. Uh, either of these ladies want to write me a check?

The World’s 18 Highest-Paid Actresses earned a combined $281 million before taxes and fees–$660 million less than the 34 World’s Highest-Paid Actors, who banked a cumulative $941 million. Only four actresses made north of $20 million, while 21 actors banked $20 million-plus. We included actresses who earned over $6 million and up, while the male barrier for entry was far higher, at $13 million.

Huh, pretty impressive if you care about rich people, I guess! Here’s the rest of the list in order, along with their earnings:

1. Jennifer Lawrence ($52 mil)

2. Scarlett Johansson ($35.5 mil)

3. Melissa McCarthy ($23 mil)

4. Bingbing Fan ($20 mil)

5. Jennifer Aniston ($16.5 mil)

6. Julia Roberts ($16 mil)

7. Angelina Jolie ($15 mil)

8. Reese Witherspoon ($15 mil)

9. Anne Hathaway ($12 mil)

10. Kristen Stewart ($12 mil)

11. Cameron Diaz ($11 mil)

12. Gwyneth Paltrow ($9 mil)

13. Meryl Streep ($8 mil),

14. Amanda Seyfried ($8 mil),

15. Sandra Bullock ($8 mil)

16. Emma Stone ($6.5 mil)

17. Mila Kunis ($6.5 mil)

18. Natalie Portman $6 mil)

No shade against any of the ladies on this list, but please tell me how the hell Meryl Streep is only at #13 when she’s the greatest living actress??? I mean, what universe do we live in???
