Cashing In: Some Of The Best Actors And Actresses Who Ran Away With The Highest Pay For Just One Movie

Emma Stone | La La Land

Born and raised in Arizona, Emma Stone started acting when she was just a child. She appeared in the theatre production of The Wind in the Willows in 2000. While working on film or TV allows for a retake, being live on stage is another story. With this kind of training, Stone became a hugely successful actress, appearing in movies like Easy A, The House Bunny, and In Search of the New Partridge Family.

With the degree of talent Stone has shown so far, it is not surprising that she would be paid $26 million for La La Land. As expected, she also won an Oscars for the said movie. We can say that the years 2016 and 2017 were the best two years because she was not only able to prime herself as a career actress, but she also earned a large sum of money. For sure, fans are looking forward to her next big project.
