Mostly because of Gravity, which made nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars

With estimated earnings of $51 million, Sandra Bullock made more money than any other Hollywood actress over the past year.

No doubt this has a lot to do with the explosive success of the sci-fi film Gravity, in which she plays an astronaut left to drift through outer space after her shuttle is destroyed by a debris storm. The movie earned nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars — more than twice the revenue of The Blind Side, which won Bullock an Academy Award in 2010.

Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Aniston were the second and third highest-paid actresses, respectively.
