The Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid actresses came out Wednesday, and in the top spot is Emma Stone, who replaces Jennifer Lawrence in the No. 1 spot.

The “La La Land” star earned $26 million before taxes during the 12-month period to lead the way.

“Stone has her earnings from the movie-musical to thank for the bulk of her payday, which also won her a Best Actress Oscar,” Forbes notes. “Her portrayal of Mia, an aspiring actress and barista, garnered rave reviews and goosed the film to $445.3 million at the global box office.”

Jennifer Aniston claimed the No. 2 spot with $25.5 million, while Lawrence slipped to No. 3 with $24 million — an amount that Forbes notes is a little more than half of her total for the previous year.

Rounding out the top five are Melissa McCarthy at No. 4 with $18 million and Mila Kunis at No. 5 with $15.5 million.
