Nicole Kidman is currently the highest paid actress in the world, according to a list compiled by the Hollywood Reporter.

Her ability to command a total of $17 million (£8.7 million) per film means that she has risen from her previous spot of the second highest paid actress.

Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon held the top spot last year but has now slipped to second place with the $15 million (£7.6 million) she earned for the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.

Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz complete the top five, all earning $15 million per film.

Julia Roberts decision to tread the boards for a while and to concentrate on her new family means that she is not in the list for the first time in four years. At $20 million (£10.2 million), her previous film fee far outshines that achieved by the actresses this year.

As well as Kidman, Zellweger and Witherspoon, other Oscar-winning actresses in the top ten include Charlize Theron and Halle Berry.
