1. Angelina Jolie, $27 million
2. Jennifer Aniston, $25 million
3. Meryl Streep, $24 million
4. Sarah Jessica Parker, $23 million
5. Cameron Diaz, $20 million
6. Sandra Bullock, $15 million
7. Reese Witherspoon, $15 million
8. Nicole Kidman, $12 million
9. Drew Barrymore, $12 million
10. Renee Zellweger, $10 million
Being the curious folks that we are at Hollywood Crush, we started wondering how this list would shape up 10 years from now, when many of today’s tweeners will have come of age and cinema staples like Angelina and Jennifer might be slowing down. While we have no idea how to calculate dollar amounts (we’re journalists, duh!), here’s a list — and accompanying flipbook — of our best guess at who will be at the top of the marquee in 2019.
1. Dakota Fanning –
After earning a triple degree in political science, romance languages and Peruvian dance from an Ivy (I’m guessing Yale), Dakota will have successfully transitioned from child star to serious adult actress and will be raking in the dough — and awards — to prove it.
2. Anne Hathaway
Equally comfortable in breezy rom-coms and gritty indies, the Meryl Streep of the Millenials will be holding her own amongst Tinsletown’s rising ingénues.
3. Abigail Breslin
The cutie who won our hearts as a would-be beauty pageant queen is destined to wear the crown of “America’s Sweetheart.”
4. Miley Cyrus
By her mid-20s, Miley’s singing alter ego won’t ring so true (Can you imagine “Hannah Montana: The Quarter-Life Crisis Years”?), but we think her perky persona and singing chops will lend themselves well to movie musicals.
5. Kristen Stewart
Though the Stephenie Meyer-penned romances that made her a star will be long behind her, Kristen will most certainly not be in the twilight of her career. We picture her as the heroine in a series of action/thrillers à la her “Panic Room” co-star Jodie Foster.
6. Megan Fox
In 2019, Megan will be the same age as her oft-compared doppelganger Angelina is today. Megan will likely sashay in to fill the vacancy left by Ms. Jolie when she retires to raise her 27 children.
8. Scarlett Johansson
One word: M.I.L.F.
9. Noah Cyrus
We already told you Miley’s younger sis is being groomed for stardom. Mark my words:” there will be an “Alexis Texas.”
10. Meryl Streep
“Devil Wears Prada 2” anyone?
Which starlets do you predict will be the highest paid actresses in 2019?
