Posted on November 29, 2006

Nicole Kidman is now the highest paid actress, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Oscar winner, who earns as much as $17 million per movie, tops the fifth annual list of highest-paid actresses released Wednesday by The Hollywood Reporter. Kidman, 39, ranked second on last year's list behind four-time top-earner Julia Roberts, who didn't make the list this year. She spent time with her 2-year-old twins.

In second place, with $15 million per movie, was Reese Witherspoon, 30, who won the best-actress Oscar this year for her performance in "Walk the Line." Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively. They also get $15 million for each film.

Rounding out the top 10 are Halle Berry ($14 million), Charlize Theron ($10 million), Angelina Jolie ($10 million), Kirsten Dunst ($8 million to $10 million) and Jennifer Aniston ($8 million). The list will appear in the Women in Entertainment Power 100 issue to be published by The Hollywood Reporter on Dec. 5.
Good for Nicole! It's nice to see how well she's done afer the Tom Cruise divorce nightmare.
