Forbes has released their annual list of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses and the top ten women have one thing in common — they are all white.

Topping the list this year is A-list star Angelina Jolie who reportedly earned $33 million this year — despite it being three years since her last big movie role in 2010′s The Tourist.

Rounding out the top five are Jennifer Lawrence ($26 million), Kristen Stewart ($22 million), Jennifer Aniston ($20 million) and Emma Stone ($16 million) — three of whom are under the age of 25, and two who have been linked romantically to actor Brad Pitt.

The remainder of the top ten includes Hollywood actresses Charlize Theron ($15 million), Sandra Bullock ($14 million), Natalie Portman ($14 million), Mila Kunis ($11 million) and Julia Roberts ($11 million).

However, despite a busy year with success on the big and small screen, black actresses like Halle Berry, Kerry Washington and Zoe Saldana did not make the cut.
