Playing Black Widow has been incredibly lucrative for SCARLETT JOHANSSON.

According to “Forbes”, she raked in another $56 million over the past year . . . enough to top their list of the highest-paid actresses for the second straight year.  Last year, she was #1 after making $40.5 million.

That wouldn’t have cut it this year . . . because SOFIA VERGARA is this year’s runner-up with $44.1 million.

Here are the world’s 10 highest-paid actresses:

 

1.  Scarlett Johansson, $56 million

2.  Sofia Vergara, $44.1 million

3.  Reese Witherspoon, $35 million

4.  Nicole Kidman, $34 million

5.  Jennifer Aniston, $28 million

6.  Kaley Cuoco, $25 million

7.  Elisabeth Moss, $24 million

8.  Margot Robbie, $23.5 million

9.  Charlize Theron, $23 million

10.  Ellen Pompeo, $22 million.

Together, these 10 women made a combined $314.6 million.

That’s 69% more than last year’s Top 10 . . . but it’s still far less than the Top 10 ACTORS, who earned a total of $588.3 million over the past year.
