Angelina Jolie has been named the world's top-earning actress for 2013, according to a list compiled by Forbes.

Jolie is said to be worth an estimated $33 million this year, easily topping the list of highest-paid actresses.

“Hollywood hasn’t shied away from Jolie," reports Forbes. "She’s still one of the few actresses who can demand a pay cheque north of $15m for the right movie — like Disney’s retelling of the old Sleeping Beauty story, Maleficent.”

This year's Best Actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) came in second place with estimated earnings of $26 million, while Twilight star Kristen Stewart followed closely behind with takings of $22 million.

Jennifer Aniston came in fourth place with earnings of $20 million, thanks in part to ongoing Friends royalties and her numerous advertising deals, such as Vitamin Water and Aveeno skincare.

Rounding off the top five was Emma Stone with $16 million, having made her first summer blockbuster last year in The Amazing Spider-Man.

Charlize Theron ($15 million), Sandra Bullock ($14 million), Natalie Portman ($14 million), Mila Kunis ($11 million) and Julie Roberts ($11 million) complete the top ten list by Forbes.
