Sarah Jessica Parker and Angelina Jolie topped Forbes' list of highest-paid actresses with $30 million in earnings in the past 12 months.
It pays to be Sarah Jessica Parker or Angelina Jolie.

The two actresses topped Forbes list of the highest-earning Hollywood starlets, each raking in $30 million salaries within 12 months (May 2010 to May 2011).

Jolie made her money thanks to her spy flick, "Salt," which brought in $300 million at the box office, as well as "The Tourist," which initially bombed in the U.S., but went on to earn $280 million with the help of international ticket sales.

Much of Parker's income came from reruns of "Sex and the City," which she also produced, and the franchise's second film, which generated $290 million at the box office.

"People may be surprised to see Sarah Jessica Parker up there but they may not realize that in addition to acting, she earns big from her perfumes and endorsement deals," said Dorothy Pomerantz of Forbes.com. 

Right behind Jolie and Parker on the list are Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who both earned $28 million last year.

Rounding out the top 10 are: Julia Roberts ($20 million), Kristen Stewart ($20 million), Katherine Heigl ($19 million), Cameron Diaz ($18 million), Sandra Bullock ($15 million) and Meryl Streep ($10 million).
