Scarlett Johansson has topped the Forbes list of Hollywood's best-paid actresses.

The Avengers: Infinity War star reportedly earned $40.5 million (Dhs149 million) in the past year, according to magazine bosses, to romp past Angelina Jolie, who is a distant second on the list with $28 million (Dhs103 million), thanks largely to her Maleficent 2 salary.

Brad Pitt's other former wife, Jennifer Aniston, is third, while Jennifer Lawrence - who was crowned the top earner in 2015 and 2016 - and Reese Witherspoon complete the top five.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is the only new name on the list at 10 - she replaces last year's number one, Emma Stone, who has dropped out of the top flight.

The combined earnings of the top 10 women this year is $186 million (Dhs683 million), up eight per cent on last year's tally.

1. Scarlett Johansson - $40.5 million (Dhs149 million)
