The women are doing it for themselves.

Forbes has now revealed who made it big at the bank between June 2017 and 2018.

The actresses who make up the top 10 highest-paid in their field managed to earn a cool $186 million between them before the taxman came calling.

Last year’s top performer — thanks to a mammoth year which saw her claim the Oscar for Best Actress — sadly could not hold on to the top spot as La La Land star, Emma Stone, dropped off the list.

Emma was pipped to the post by none other than Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson.

The 32-year-old’s role in Avengers: Infinity War, which made over $2 billion worldwide, ensured that she earned $40.5 million — quadruple her previous year’s sum.

The figure is almost double that of Angelina Jolie’s whose role in Maleficent 2 placed her in 2nd spot with $28 million.

Endorsements for Emirates, Smartwater, and Aveeno earned $19.5 million for Friends actress Jennifer Aniston, putting her in 3rd place.

Jennifer Lawrence and Reese Witherspoon rounded out the top 5 with $18 million and $16.5 million, respectively.

They were followed by Mila Kunis ($16 million), Julia Roberts ($13 million), Cate Blanchett ($12.5 million), Melissa McCarthy ($12 million), and Gal Gadot ($10 million).
