She may be the star of The Hunger Games franchise, but Jennifer Lawrence's pockets definitely aren't starving. According to Forbes, J. Law is the world's highest paid actress, having earned an estimated $52 million before taxes between June 2014 and June 2015.

In case anyone's wondering, that adds up to a whopping $4.33 million per month. If that number immediately sent you into a daydream where Jennifer treated you to an all-day shopping spree, then make sure you buy us something nice.

In the meantime, let's get back to reality and the matter of J. Law's massive annual income. Back in May, it was reported that J. Law fought to secure a $20 million payday for her role in the upcoming film Joy, which amounts to a cool $10 mil more than her male co-star Chris Pratt. Clearly, Jennifer clearing the aforementioned gender pay gap hurdle and topping Forbes' newest global salary ranking certainly proves that she's a beast both on and off the screen. It's huge progress, but when compared against the top earning actors, women still feel the slight.

As pointed out by the A.V. Club, Robert Downey, Jr. topped the list of highest paid actors, earning $80 million, or nearly $30 million more than J. Law. Perhaps something other than gender factors into that disparity, but the fact that Jennifer and Scarlett Johansson are the only two women on the overall top 10 list that combines the male and female actors and their 2015 salaries indicates that women continue to fight an uphill battle in making sure that we're paid what we deserve.

Keep fighting the good fight, Jennifer!
