Young, hot, super sexy and successful; these actresses beat all the odds to become rich at a young age. Love them or hate them, if age is just but a number, their numbers are in eight to nine figures. (I think by now you would have guessed we are not talking about age). These charming Hollywood hot shots took the silver screen by storm and with a total $500 million between them; girl power in Hollywood is obviously a force to reckon. Rihanna made over $75 million in 2016 alone, while Jennifer Lawrence thanks to Hunger Games 2 grossed nearly $44 million in hard earned cash. Given that they have barely hit 30, Sara Canning and crew would most likely want to wipe their awards’ closet because very soon the award nominations will come calling.
