Hollywood's Highest-Paid Women

Slide 1 of 5

Tied for #4: Tying for fourth place on our highest-paid list is Ellen DeGeneres who earned $53 million between May 2011 and May 2012. With Oprah Winfrey off of daytime TV, DeGeneres is quickly becoming the most popular syndicated talk show host. Like Winfrey, DeGeneres is building her own roster of protégé hosts with their own shows. She's started with Bethenny Frankel, whose show had a six week test run this summer. DeGeneres is also one of the smartest business people around. JC Penney paid her a reported $20 million to be the face of the company's new, hipper image.
