Emma Stone winning multiple awards for her performance in La La Land wasn't the peak of the stellar 2017 she's been having.

Forbes announced that the 28-year-old is this year's highest-paid actress, with an estimated $26 million in pre-tax earnings. Her paycheque, though incredible, doesn't come close to Jennifer Lawrence's $46 million earnings in 2016 – most of that was thanks to The Hunger Games finale.

Jennifer Aniston follows closely with $25.5 million, followed by Jennifer Lawrence ($24 million), Melissa McCarthy ($18million), Mila Kunis ($15.5 million), Emma Watson ($14 million), Charlize Theron ($14 million), Cate Blanchett ($12 million), Julia Roberts ($12 million) and Amy Adams ($11.5 million).

But the question remains – how will Emma's $26 million compare to the world's highest-paid actor? Forbes will release that list next week.

Currency shown is in USD.
