Scarlett Johansson To Get $20M For “Avengers” Sequel. The New York Post reports the actress will get a significant bump in pay to reprise her role as Black Widow. The payday will make her the highest paid actress in Hollywood and she’ll join an elite group of actresses. Only four others have commanded the same amount per film: 

  1. Julia Roberts: Erin Brockovich (2000)
  2. Cameron Diaz: Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003)
  3. Angelina Jolie: Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
  4. Reese Witherspoon: Penelope (2006)

Yay for ScarJo and all, but let’s focus on what’s really important here. Reese Witherspoon got 20 mil for Penelope? That terrible pig snout movie where Reese wasn’t even the lead character? Wow.
