If there was one person who could help us define the 90’s then it has got to be Jennifer Aniston, thanks to her role as Rachel in Friends. The character’s ‘will they/won’t they?’ relationship with Ross captured so many people’s hearts.
However Aniston has continued to have a successful career and has starred in a number of hit films, such as Horrible Bosses, Bruce Almighty and Cake.
3. Jennifer Lopez
Net worth: over $110 million
OK you might say she’s more of a singer than an actress but she has made her name in several popular films, particularly Maid in Manhattan.

2. Julia Roberts

Since starring in the film Pretty Women which effectively launched her career, Roberts’ films, of which include Erin Brokovich, Notting Hill and Eat Pray Love (just to name a few) have grossed an eye-popping $2.6 billion pounds!
In fact Pretty Woman alone grossed $464 million worldwide.
For her role in Mona Lisa Smile Roberts was paid $25 million, showing that she is clearly a woman in demand!
1. Angelina Jolie
Net worth: $145 million
Jolie is a powerful actress and mover and shaker in world politics.
Since her role in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, which launched her as a Hollywood star, Jolie has appeared in critically acclaimed films such as Changeling and A Mighty Heart.
She recently played the leading role in Disney’s Maleficent, which offered a new take on the iconic villain from Sleeping Beauty.
Jolie is also notable for her humanitarian work, as well as making a name for herself as a talented film maker. Even the acrimonious divorce from Brad Pitt isn’t reducing her box office bankability.
