If  "money makes the world go round," Jennifer Lawrence is spinning it.

Forbes released its list of the world’s highest-paid actresses over the course of 12 months, and the 25-year-old Hunger Games franchise star tops the list with $52 million.  

Coming in second is Scarlett Johansson, who earned $35.5 million thanks to her roles in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Lucy. Not to mention, those endorsement deals the 30-year-old has with Dolce & Gabbana and Sodastream.

For third place's Melissa McCarthy, her clothing line is sure to add to the $23 million she pulled in during the past year. The 44-year-old actress gave ET a look at a few pieces from her Melissa McCarthy Seven7 clothing line in July, and animal prints and bold geometrics are just a couple of the looks that will become available at Lane Bryant and Macy's, as well as online at HSN and Melissa's website on September 1.

"It's like a dream since I was in grade school, so it's kind of crazy that I get to do it," Melissa told ET at the Spy premiere in New York on June 1.

Just a couple million short of McCarthy, and proving that this year's list is global, Chinese actress Bingbing Fan came in at No. 4 with $21 million. Fan appeared in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past as Blink aka Clarice Ferguson.

Taking the No. 5 spot is newlywed Jennifer Aniston, who clearly hasn't been promoting that Smartwater for nothing.

The 46-year-old made $16.5 million, beating ex-husband Brad Pitt's wife Angelina Jolie, who ranked No. 7 with $15 million. Pulling in the same amount as Jolie is Reese Witherspoon, who is no doubt partially banking off of her lifestyle site, Draper James

Of course, let's not forget Julia Roberts, who, with $16 million in earnings, managed to squeeze in between Aniston and Jolie for the No. 6 position! The Pretty Woman actress will soon be starring opposite her pal George Clooney in the appropriately titled movie, Money Monster.

And while these amounts of money can make us all green with envy, it won't be making those Hathahaters happy either. But Anne Hathaway can certainly laugh them off given the fact that she is ninth on the list with $12 million -- the same amount that Twilight's Kristen Stewart earned as well. 

Forbes reports that the combined total of these 10 women is about $281 million before taxes, but that's still $660 million less than the world's highest-paid actors.
