This is the first list to be published since revelations about differences between the pay of men and women in Hollywood and the subsequent pledges to close the gap.

The combined earnings of the top 10 women this year is $186m (£146.5m), up 8% on last year.

But it’s 9% down on the 2016 total, when Jennifer Lawrence topped the rankings with $46m.

Forbes normally releases the equivalent list for male stars soon after the women’s list.
