Jennifer Lawrence ranks third on our list with a return of $68.60 for every $1 she was paid. It’s not a surprise to see Lawrence on this list. She’s probably the most in-demand actress in Hollywood today thanks to her blockbuster work in The Hunger Games and her Oscar-winning performance inSilver Linings Playbook. Lawrence was initially paid less than $1 million upfront for the first Hunger Games movie. She earned a lot more for Catching Fire, but that film hit theaters after our time frame.
