Julia Roberts may not have starred in a movie in 2005 -- her last film appearances were in 2004's
"Ocean's Twelve" and "Closer" -- but she remains the highest-paid actress in Hollywood,
commanding $20 million a film, according to the Hollywood Reporter's annual list of top-earning
actresses. And she's not the only one to rake in the big bucks for as little as a few weeks' worth of

What are other Hollywood A-listers bringing in? Chew on this:

    Lindsay Lohan collected $7.5 million for the 2006 romantic comedy "Just My Luck"

    Nicole Kidman pulled down $16 million for this year's sci-fi release "The Visiting."

    Johnny Depp reportedly netted $17.5 million for "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," and
     will also earn $20 million each of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels.

    Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx are rumored to be receiving up to $20 million each for the
     upcoming big-screen version of the 80s TV hit "Miami Vice."

Tinseltown's elite can earn multimillion-dollar paychecks, but their on-screen counterparts don't
make nearly that much. This year's Academy Award nominees portrayed people working in jobs
ranging from part-time store clerk to veteran CIA agent -- not really the jobs that can support the
glamorous and fabulous life of a celebrity.

Summary Matt Dillon                Police Officer Ryan            $46,600 annually (average)
                                   in "Crash"
             Paul Giamatti         Boxing trainer Joe             $35,880 annually (average)

Summary                            "Walk the Line"

copies of her latest album in 2005. The couple, who plans to tour together in 2006, grossed nearly
$50 million from their 2000 tour.
