REVEALED: UAE's 20 most bankable actresses

Comic book blockbuster ‘The Avengers’ has once again helped its main Hollywood starlets to rise to the top of the list of the most bankable actresses, according to UAE box office receipts for the last 12 months, but the data shows female stars are still way behind their male counterparts in terms of popularity among ticket buyers.

Starring in ‘We Bought a Zoo’ helped Scarlett Johansson to rise to the top of the list of most popular actresses, but her role as Black Widow in ‘The Avengers’ was what pushed her total box office takings to over US$6m in the UAE over the last 12 months.

It is little wonder Johansson has been offered US$20m to reprise her role in ‘The Avengers’ sequel, a payday which will make her the highest paid actress ever.

Close behind her was another ‘The Avengers’ actress, a vampire favourite, a former Bond girl and an American pop princess.
