Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HUNGER Games star Jen­nifer Lawrence is the world’s high­est-paid ac­tress, ac­cord­ing to Forbes’ lat­est rich list.

Jen­nifer ( above) has topped the an­nual list for the sec­ond year in a row, with her earn­ings over the past 12 months said to be £34.9mil­lion be­fore tax.

At 26, the Academy Award-win­ning ac­tress is also the youngest on the list, which looked at stars’ earn­ings be­tween June 2015 and June this year.

She sits ahead of Melissa McCarthy, Scar­lett Jo­hans­son and Jen­nifer Anis­ton, each of whom has made it into the top five.

Jen­nifer topped the list in 2015 af­ter earn­ing a shade un­der £40m, mean­ing she has seen an 11.5 per cent de­crease in tak­ings year on year.

The Yank babe re­ceived a hefty pay­out from the box of­fice gross of the fi­nal movie in the pop­u­lar Hunger Games fran­chise, in which she starred as lead­ing char­ac­ter Kat­niss Everdeen.
