Tom Cruise has been in hot water recently for comparing his job to fighting in Afghanistan. While acting is no easy task (lots of running, jumping, rehearsal, and makeup) it’s certainly no Afghan war. Luckily for a few Hollywood ladies, their salaries more than make up for their long hours and bumps and bruises sustained during shooting. The following actresses are the highest paid in Hollywood:


5) Emma Stone, $16 million
