Why Jennifer Lawrence Is Making Hollywood Rich

Why Jennifer Lawrence Is Making Hollywood Rich

The American Hustle star is very good value for money...

Jennifer Lawrence is not only one of the most talented stars in Hollywood right now, but she's also one of the best value for money.

Forbes has released it's Best Actors for the Buck list, which calculates which stars are returning the most revenue by looking at their box office sales next to how much they charge per film.

Women dominate the list, but, sadly, for all the wrong reasons: female film stars generally don't command the same sums of money as their male counterparts, meaning they make more money for their movie bosses.

Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle

Emma Stone tops the list, making film studios $80.70 (£49.17) for every dollar she was paid. Stone is followed closely by Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence, who are both returning around $70 for every dollar paid.

J Law took home $500,000 for her first Hunger Games film, which is a pretty slim figure compared to the huge amounts paid to other stars, and the amount it made in the box office.

Of course, the 23-year-old's fee has risen substantially since then, and will no doubt continue to do so since her recent Golden Globe nomination for her part in American Hustle.

Still, it's clear J Law is worth every penny...
