ANGELINA Jolie is Hollywood's highest paid actress.

The 38-year-old star has topped Forbes Hollywood's Highest Paid Actresses list after pocketing $33 million between June 2012 and June 2013, which is $13 million more than she earned last year.

According to Forbes.com, the screen beauty - who hasn't been seen on the big screen for three years since 2010's thriller 'The Tourist' - will make her comeback next summer in Disney's 'Maleficent' for which she will make $15 million.

Angelina, who in the interim directed and wrote Bosnian War movie 'In The Land of Blood and Honey', earned $9 million more than the second-ranked actress on the list, Jennifer Lawrence.

The 22-year-old actress helped the first movie in 'The Hunger Games' franchise bank $690 million at the box office and while she was paid under $1 million for the first film, production company Lionsgate will be paying her substantially more for the sequel 'Catching Fire'.

Kristen Stewart, who topped the list last year with $34.5 million, has dropped to third place with $22 million.

The 23-year-old made her main fortune playing female lead Bella Swan in the 'Twilight Saga' series and has been doing smaller productions since the vampire saga finished.

Jennifer Aniston takes the fourth spot with $20 million and Emma Stone makes the top five with an estimated $16 million.
