No women of color on Forbes’ highest-paid actress list

Forbes released its annual list of highest-paid actresses and Kristen Stewart tops the list, raking in $34.5 million over the past year. The 22-year-old most recently anchored the popular Twilight franchise and this summer’s Snow White & the Huntsman.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the list is lack of representation for a single woman of color. This year there is no minority women in the top 10. The last woman of color to crack the top ten was Halle Berry in 2007 after co-starring in the blockbuster X-Men: The Last Stand, making $15 million that year.

Has Hollywood become whitewashed, or are women of color in movies just not making the grade?

The highest paid male movie stars aren’t much more diverse than the women. Over the past few years only Will Smith and Denzel Washington have reached the upper echelon of Hollywood paydays.
