The Highest Paid Actors and Actresses in Hollywood | 2017

19. Melissa McCarthy

Columbia Pictures

$18 million
Not going to lie, this one's a bit of a shocker. Melissa wasn't really in much in 2017, except — of course — her hilarious role as Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live. She does, however, have THREE movies premiering in 2018 including Life of the Party where she also served as a screenwriter and producer. In 2016, she had a lead role in Ghostbusters, Central Intelligence and The Boss. Plus, remember her brief (and we mean BRIEF) cameo on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life? Sometimes it's easy to forget the movie star played Sookie St. James, especially now that she's making $18 mil a year!
