Jennifer Lawrence, star of The Hunger Games, has topped Forbes’ annual list of the highest paid actresses in the world, with earning of $52 million between July 2014 and June 2015. As well as breaking records in Lionsgate’s adventure film series, several notable roles have also contributed to her fortune, as she balances critically acclaimed drama with high budget blockbusters.
