Sandra Bullock might as well keep the party going.

Bullock, who just celebrated her 50th birthday, was named the highest-earning actress by Forbes magazine – which pegs her earnings between June 2013 and June 2014 at $51 million.

Bullock's boon was largely due to Gravity, which won seven Oscars and earned $716 million globally.

Jennifer Lawrence enjoys the No. 2 spot, earning an estimated $34 million in the same time frame.



Jennifer Aniston is hot on Lawrence's heels, coming in third with $31 million – Forbes cites Friends residuals and her endorsement with Aveeno as contributing to the major portion of her yearly earnings.

Gwyneth Paltrow marks the 4th spot, and last year's top earner, Angelina Jolie, ties with Cameron Diaz for 5th place.

As huge as these payouts seem, Forbes points out that women still make less than men in Hollywood. The Top 10 actors earned a total of $419 million, while the women made just more than half of that this year, $226 million.
