A tough economy hasn’t paid its toll on two of Hollywood’s richest leading ladies.
Their paycheck? An estimated $30 million each.
Jolie, 36, sang her way to the bank with the financial success of her two big-budget films of 2010: Salt and The Tourist, which by itself earned $280 million, largely thanks to the overseas market.
Parker, 46, is still reaping the benefits of playing Manhattan fashionista Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, which she also produces. The TV show still airs in re-runs, and she also made money from the $290 million-grossing big screen sequel.
Aside from her acting, Parker earns a payday from her fragrance lines, which raked in $18 million in 2010.
