1. Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson

Born: 22 November 1984, Manhattan, New York, United States.
Net worth: $165 million.

In 2019, Johansson once again reprised her role as Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame, which is the highest-grossing film of all time. She next starred in Noah Baumbach's Netflix film Marriage Story, in which Adam Driver and she played a warring couple who file for divorce. She found a connection with her part, as she was amidst her own divorce proceeding at the time. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian commended her "brilliantly textured work" in it. She also took on the supporting role of a young boy's mother who shelters a Jewish girl in Nazi Germany in Taika Waititi's satire Jojo Rabbit.

Waititi modelled Johansson's part on his own mother, and cast her to provide her a rare opportunity to perform comedy. The film received polarizing reviews, but Stephanie Zacharek labeled her the "lustrous soul of the movie." Johansson received her first two Academy Award nominations, for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress for her performances in Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit, respectively, becoming the eleventh performer to be nominated for two Oscars in the same year. She also received two BAFTA nominations for these films, and a Golden Globe nomination for the former.

She then portrayed a psychologically troubled astronaut (based on Lisa Nowak) in the drama Lucy in the Sky, directed by Noah Hawley. She replaced the film's producer Reese Witherspoon, who backed out due to a scheduling conflict. Although Portman's performance was picked up for praise, the film was unfavorably reviewed.

Born: 12 November 1982, Brooklyn, New York, United States.

Hathaway began the new decade with the political thriller The Last Thing He Wanted (2020), based on the book of the same name by Joan Didion. She considered herself to be an unlikely choice for the part of a headstrong journalist, as it differed from her own "puppy dog" personality. It received negative reviews from critics. Hathaway will next star in The Witches, an adaptation of the novel of the same name from director Robert Zemeckis, and will play a leading role in a film based on the Sesame Street franchise.

9. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston

Aniston made her return to television on November 1, 2019, producing and starring alongside Reese Witherspoon in the Apple TV+ drama The Morning Show. It is her first main television role since the conclusion of Friends in 2004.

10. Emma Watson

Emma Watson

Born: 5 October 1975, Reading, United Kingdom
Net worth: $45 million

Several journalists consider Winslet to be among the best actresses of her generation. Despite achieving stardom early in her career with the top-grossing Titanic, Winslet has rarely acted in commerce-driven pictures. A journalist for Elle believes her choices reflect the "soul and attitude of a jobbing actress, trapped in the body of a movie star". Tom Perrotta, the author of Little Children, has said that Winslet "gravitates toward troubling roles in smaller films", typically those of "thorny, potentially unsympathetic" women. 

The journalist Mark Harris writes that she specialises in "unsentimentalized, restless, troubled, discontented, disconcerted, difficult women" and John Hiscock of The Daily Telegraph has identified a theme of characters who are free-spirited with a sexual edge to them. Stephen Whitty of NJ.com associates Winslet with "serious, almost despairing material", although he finds it hard to pigeonhole her as an actress.
