She might have been paid less than her male costars in American Hustle, but Jennifer Lawrence is far from broke. According to Forbes magazine, Lawrence, or at least her movies, are actually raking in the dough and she’s finishing out 2014 as Hollywood’s highest grossing actor. Her films, like Hunger Games: Mockingjay and X-Men: Days of Future Past, have grossed more than $1.4 billion. Everyone’s favorite new lovable action star Chris Pratt came in second at $1.2 billion, thanks to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie.
Scarlett Johansson, Mark Wahlberg and Chris Evans finished out the top five. Many of the films that propelled these actors to the top were of the action genre, so aspiring thespians, take note – if you want to be in a movie that pulls in top dollar, you might want to brush up on your Lara Croft moves and choreographed hand-to-hand combat.
