Becoming a working actor who makes enough to provide for yourself is a task that is so difficult that the vast majority of people see it as nothing more than a pipe dream. Yet, every year there are people around the world that manage to pull off that impressive feat. Beating those odds alone is incredible enough, but there has to be someone each year that goes above and beyond, to the point that they are the highest paid actress in the world, and that deserves attention. In an effort to celebrate the most powerful actress in the acting world for 2016, we were inspired to put together a list of 15 photos that prove why she is the highest paid actress in the world.

Like always, there was a lot of competition for the spot including the likes of Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Aniston and Scarlett Johansson, but one woman reigned supreme. According to the folks over at Forbes, Jennifer Lawrence beat out the woman who took second place, Melissa McCarthy by being paid forty-six million that year. One of the biggest stars alive today, it makes sense to us that Jennifer took home the gold considering she combines rare beauty and acting skills, good enough to net her an Oscar and multiple nominations. Here we’ll be looking at images from some of her most acclaimed performances, and also some photos of her at her at most beautiful, as that clearly plays a part in her fame as well.

In order for a photo to be considered for this list, it needs to feature Jennifer in one form or another but if someone else is present that does not disqualify it from potential inclusion. We are also open to screengrabs from her work as an actress, as in many cases images of actors working become their longest-lasting looks in the pop culture world.

Jennifer has appeared in a number of films that have done well at the box office and/or been embraced by film critics but there is one series of films that she remains most associated with, The Hunger Games. Based off of a series of young adult novels, the series focuses on Katniss Everdeen, the character she played. A contestant in an annual event in which youngsters are forced to hunt and kill one another, Katniss eventually becomes the symbol of rebellion for the downtrodden in the series. As such, she needed to be portrayed by an actress that possessed enough charisma that audiences could buy into the idea that hordes of humanity would gather behind her. There isn’t any actress we can think of that is better built to play the part than Jennifer and that is the biggest reason why she was the highest paid actress in 2016.
