Jennifer Lawrence is Forbes’ top-grossing actor of 2014.
Throughout the year, Lawrence’s films — including blockbusters “Mockingjay” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” — have brought in $1.4 billion at the box office worldwide. According to Forbes, that number will grow even more as “Mockingjay” continues its theatrical run.
This is a big jump in the rankings for Lawrence, who last year snagged the final spot in the top ten with a gross of $700 million. The number one spot in 2013 was filled by Dwayne Johnson, who brought in $1.3 billion.
The ranking comes on the heels of recently released information from the Sony leaks that Lawrence was paid less than her male co-stars for her work in “American Hustle” — a revelation that falls in line with the greater gender gap that continues to persist in Hollywood.
Rounding out the top five of 2014’s list include Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Wahlberg and Chris Evans.
