Forbes has just released their list of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses, and (drumroll, please) two of the ten starlets are Jewish. Not bad ladies!

Natalie Portman comes in at number eight, having earned $14 million this year. While the Oscar winner has been in the news lately for her upcoming directorial debut, it’s blockbusters like “Thor” that are bolstering her impressive paycheck.

Right behind Portman at number nine is Ukrainian-born Mila Kunis with $11 million. Kunis is a newcomer to Forbes’ list, thanks to big hits like “Ted” and “Oz: The Great and Powerful.”

“Expect her quote, which is currently modest by Hollywood standards, to climb accordingly,” Forbes says of Kunis, “one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood.” What, $11 million doesn’t sound modest to you? To put things in perspective, Angelina Jolie heads up the list with $33 million.
