Forbes has released their list of THE WORLD'S HIGHEST-PAID ACTRESSES, their annual listing of all the female actors you should hit up on a film set if your kid is selling candy or magazine subscriptions.

Unsurprisingly, at the top of this list is Jennifer Lawrence, who counts two blockbuster franchises amongst the many things she gets paid a lot to act in. Also unsurprising: the gender wage gap that continues to exist in the world likewise continues in Hollywood; the top female earners for 2015 still fall woefully behind the year's top male earners and Sandlers. But what is sort of surprising is that Julia Roberts somehow remains really high on the list. Apparently that's because of endorsement deals, which also factor in here. Don't worry, mom, you haven't been missing any Julia Roberts movies.

Anyway, here's the list:

1. Jennifer Lawrence - $52 million
2. Scarlett Johansson - $35.5 million
3. Melissa McCarthy - $23 million
4. Bingbing Fan - $21 million
5. Jennifer Aniston - $16.5 million
6. Julia Roberts - $16 million
7. Angelina Jolie - $15 million
8. Reese Witherspoon - $15 million
9. Anne Hathaway - $12 million
9. Kristen Stewart - $12 million
11. Cameron Diaz - $11 million
12. Gwyneth Paltrow - $9 million
13. Meryl Streep - $8 million
13. Amanda Seyfried - $8 million
13. Sandra Bullock - $8 million
16. Emma Stone - $6.5 million
17. Mila Kunis - $6.5 million
18. Natalie Portman - $6 million
