LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's own Jennifer Lawrence is the highest paid actress in the world.

According to Forbes, the Oscar winner made $46 million before taxes over the year.

The huge payday was thanks in part to the third and fourth installments of "The Hunger Games" and "Passengers," a movie coming out later this year.

This is Lawrence's second year in a row at the top of the list.

"Ghostbusters" star Melissa McCarthy comes in at second.
