Cameron Diaz tops the list of top earning actresses by banking $50 million between June 2007 and June 2008. That’s right. In one year, Cameron Diaz raked in 50 million dollars. A big chunk of that is thanks to her role as princess-turned-ogre in DreamWorks’ Shrek franchise. Shrek may have made her more money, but one of her most popular roles was that of Mary in “There’s Something About Mary.”

The race for top earning actress wasn’t even close. Second place finisher was Keira Knightley who earned $32 million – $18 million less than Cameron Diaz. Jennifer Aniston was third with $27 million.
