Forbes has released their annual list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood and they touted Angelina Jolie as the highest paid actress, making $30 Million between May 2010 and May 2011.

Jolie’s earnings came from the big-budget action flicks “Salt” and “The Tourist.”

Third on the list is Jennifer Aniston, she raked in a not too shabby $28 million.

With Jolie beating Aniston, this is causing a bit of speculation that Angelina is stealing Jen’s thunder, again.

If you remember back in 2004, the storybook marriage between Brad Pitt and Aniston ended when Brad left Jen for Angelina. Pitt and Jolie met while they were filming the movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

Don’t worry about Jen, she is now dating actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux and with her new movie “Horrible Bosses” opening on July 8 she is happy and rich as ever!

Here is the list of Hollywood’s top 10 highest-paid actresses:

1. Angelina Jolie – $30 Million
2. Sarah Jessica Parker – $30 Million
3. Jennifer Aniston – $28 Million
4. Reese Witherspoon – $28 Million
5. Julia Roberts – $20 Million
6. Kristen Stewart – $20 Million
7. Katehrine Heigl – $19 Million
8. Cameron Diaz – $18 Million
9. Sandra Bullock – $15 Million
10. Meryl Streep – $10 Million
