Hollywood's sweetheart is also its top-earning actress, dpa reported.
Sandra Bullock earned 56 million dollars in the 12 months ending in June, according to Forbes magazine Tuesday, easily surpassing the next two actresses on the list, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz, who both earned only 32 million dollars.
Jennifer Aniston came in fourth with 27 million dollars. The rest of the list included Sarah Jessica Parker (25 million dollars), Julia Roberts (20 million dollars), Angelina Jolie (20 million dollars), Drew Barrymore (15 million dollars), Meryl Streep (13 million dollars) and Kristen Stewart (12 million dollars).
For Bullock, the high-earning status capped a topsy-turvy year dominated by her Oscar win for her role in The Blind Side, a hit movie for which she had agreed to take a pay cut in return for a share of the profits.
Just days after her Oscar win, tabloids broke the news of her husband's philandering with tattoo models, and the couple are now divorced. Despite the split Bullock went ahead with plans to adopt a baby.
