Hollywood’s Top-Earning Actresses

According to Forbes, Amy Adams is ninth Hollywood’s top-earning actress with $14.5 million. Cameron Diaz is Hollywood’s top-earning actress, raking in $50 million. Keira Knightley places No. 2 on the list, with annual earnings of $32 million. Former Friend Jennifer Aniston comes in third, collecting $27 million.

Maintaining leading-lady status in Hollywood requires more than starring roles. The resumes of Tinseltown’s A-list actresses feature offerings from movie and television work to endorsement and fashion deals. Along with the host of gigs come blockbuster paychecks. Proof: Hollywood’s 10 top-earning–and ever-active–actresses collectively banked $244.5 million between June 1, 2007 and June 1, 2008.

Estimated Earnings: $14.5 Million

Adams had a musical hit with last year’s Disney-produced Enchanted, which grossed $340 million. Next, the up-and-comer will be starring in two movies with Meryl Streep, Doubt and Julia & Julia.

Tropic Thunder Premiere

Our girl attended the Los Angeles premiere of Tropic Thunder yesterday, perhaps to support co-star Ben Stiller (also in attendance). Amy was looking absolutely gorgeous in a cream number and hair on an updo. The first set of images are available in the gallery. I love the ones of Amy with Matthew McConaughey!

Update: 100+ HQs have been added in the gallery.

Nominated at the National Movie Awards

Miss Adams is nominated at the UK’s National Movie Awards in the following categories:

• Performance – Female (Amy Adams)
• Musical (Enchanted)

We have until August 17th to vote, so get your votes in here now! The ceremony itself will be shown on ITV1 in September.

Variety: Meryl Streep and Amy Adams

One is considered the greatest actress of her generation; the other is American cinema’s most enchating “It” girl. But any notion that one is on the downward trajectory of her career while the other flies high is demolished by the sheer resilience and ambition of Meryl Streep’s recent career choices.

Streep, whose first all-out musical, Mamma Mia!, opened July 18, will be seen in two films with the effervescent Amy Adams in the coming year: Doubt, adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning stage play by John Patrick Shanley, and Julie and Julia, in which Streep plays the indomitable Julia Child to Adams’ food-blogging Queens housewife who cooks her way through Childs’ Mastering the Art of French Cooking. While they don’t share any scenes in the latter film, they act as kindred culinary spirits.

Asked if she had learned anything working with Streep, Adams doesn’t hesitate. “I learned that I will never be Meryl Streep,” she says in all sincerity.

Amy and Darren to Wed!

Our warmest congratulations go out to Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, who have confirmed that they’re engaged to marry in 2009.

Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams is getting hitched.

Adams is engaged to her boyfriend of six years, actor Darren Le Gallo; the couple plan to marry sometime next year. Le Gallo proposed to Adams with a diamond by French jewelry designer Jean Dousset of Beverly Hills.

Adams and Legallo met in acting class. “It’s really important to have someone to remind you who you are,” she told USA Today in March. “I’ll run all over but come back to him, and I know who I am.”

Adams was nominated for an Academy Award for the 2005 movie Junebug. She’ll play a nun opposite Meryl Streep in Doubt, out in December.
