Aside from winning her first-ever best actress Oscar award in 2017, Emma Stone also topped Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid actresses that year with $26 million. The majority of that amount came from her role in the 2016 musical romantic movie La La Land.

Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, La La Land stars Stone as an aspiring actress and Ryan Gosling as a jazz pianist, who meet and fall in love while pursuing their dreams in Los Angeles. The Oscar-winning film grossed $447 million at the worldwide box office against a budget of just $30 million.
