Halle Berry's stunning performance in the little-watched "Things We Lost in the Fire" reminded viewers why she has a statue. Next up, Berry will team up with Billy Bob Thorton in "Tulia."
9. Jodie Foster ($10-12 Million/Movie)Jodie Foster's most recent film "The Brave One" exceeded box office expectations and Foster's additional role as executive producer bolstered her earnings. Foster typically takes a project a year but past hit films "Inside Man" and "Flightplan" prove the star is worth the wait.
8. Drew Barrymore ($10-$12 Million/Movie)Drew Barrymore impressed with her vocals alongside Hugh Grant in "Music and Lyrics." She also commands millions more with savvy producing choices, including "He's Just Not That Into You."
7. Juilia Roberts ($10-$15 Million/Movie)Julia Roberts' recent time off to be a mom has hurt her bankability, but there is no denying she is still among the Hollywood elite. Roberts most recently starred in the film "Duplicty" with Clive Owen.
6. Sandra Bullock ($10-$15 Million/Movie)Sandra Bullock will always have the "Speed" and "Miss Congeniality" franchises to draw on and this allows the actress to take on riskier roles like the reclusive Harper Lee in "Infamous" and she will appear in "All About Steve" with Thomas Haden Church.
5. Renee Zellweger ($10-$15 Million/Movie)Zellweger can still bank off her "Bridget Jones" work and she helped herself with the buzz around last year's "Bee Movie." Next up Zellweger will appear in "Case 39" with Ian McShane.
4. Nicole Kidman ($10-$15 Million/Movie)Baz Lurhmann's film "Australia," in which Kidman and Hugh Jackman had the leading roles, got mixed reviews at the box office and was the only film Kidman released in 2008 (she had three out the year before). Coming up next for her is the film "Nine," in which she'll co-star with Penelope Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis.
3. Cameron Diaz ($15+ Million/Movie)Diaz collected her largest payday to date, snaring $30 million for her voice role in "Shrek the Third." Diaz will take a more serious turn with her role in the upcoming film "My Sister's Keeper."
2. Angelina Jolie ($15-$20 Million/Movie)Angelina Jolie took a pay cut to $8 million for her role in "Beowulf," which butchered the competition at the box office. Jolie then returned to family animation in "Kung Fu Panda," earned an Oscar nomination for her role in "Changling" and will star next in the action-thriller "Salt."
1. Reese Witherspoon ($15-$20 Million/Movie)Reese Witherspoon took a hit with the box-office flop "Rendition" but got back on track with the romantic comedy "Four Christmases."
