Jennifer Lawrence Tops List of Highest Grossing Actors for 2014--Who Else Made the List?

Want the most bang for your buck? Hire Jennifer Lawrence!

Per Forbes, the 24-year-old Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 1 star was the No. 1 highest grossing actor in 2014. In other words, the numbers confirm what we've all already known: J.Law is golden! The X-Men: Days of Future Past star's films brought in approximately $1.4 billion at the box office.

She's not the only star who makes movies people will pay money to see! Chris Pratt, who starred in Guardians of the Galaxy and lent his voice to The Lego Movie, brought in $1.2 billion at the global box office, making him the second highest grossing actor for 2014.

Scarlett Johansson also had a major 2014! Not only did she welcome her first child (daughter Rose Dorothy), but she also brought in the big bucks. Per Forbes, the 30-year-old actress brought in 1.18 billion at the box office with Captain America, Lucy and Under the Skin.

Other stars who are actually deserving of those massive paychecks? Mark Wahlberg, who grossed $1 billion at the global box office, thanks largely to his role in Transfomers: Age of Extinction, and Captain America star Chris Evans, who brought in $801 million at the global box office.

Emma Stone made the list, thanks to Birdman and Magic in the Moonlight, as did Angelina Jolie, whose Maleficent grossed over $700 million.

Congrats to all the top grossing actors. It must be a relief to be on this list and not ranked as one of Hollywood's most overpaid stars!
