LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Sandra Bullock beat out America's BFF Jennifer Lawrence for the top spot on Forbes' 2014 list of top-earning actresses.

The 50-year-old Gravity star leads the list at $51 million with Lawrence following in second place with earnings of $34 million from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Jennifer Aniston is third on the list with earnings of $31 million, Gwyneth Paltrow follows in fourth with $19 million for Iron Man 3 and Angelina Jolie rounds out the top five with earnings of $18 million for Maleficent.

Cameron Diaz, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman and Kristen Stewart complete the list's top 10.

Forbes points out in its article that this year's top-earning women still make considerably less than top-earning men. While Hollywood's leading gentlemen brought in a combined $419 million during the time frame used to extract the data, women brought $226 million, a little over half of what the men earned.

Forbes top-payed actors are Robert Downey Jr. ($75 million), Dwayne Johnson ($52 million), Bradley Cooper ($46 million), Leonardo DiCaprio ($39 million) and Chris Hemsworth ($37 million).
