Final Thoughts

Thank you for checking out this top 50 list of the richest actresses in Hollywood as it currently stands (May 2014). I was surprised to see how many people were on this list which I was not expecting to see, just as I was surprised to see so many people not on this list which I'd thought would surely be on there before doing my research.

If like me there were people you were surprised to see either on the list or not on the list, then please leave the names in the comment box below. I know I have said it already, but a final thanks to all for taking the time aside to check out this list.

      Hi Flyfishmaine,

      Thank you for checking out my list. I am well aware that I did not include Oprah and I am aware that she is an actress. However I have always saw her as being better known for being a TV host and an owner of a successful production company and less known as an actress. This being, why I left her off the list as cruel as that somewhat sounds.
