Forbes: Meryl Streep is highest grossing comedy actress

Although her Oscars came from her dramatic roles, Forbes reports that over the last five years, Meryl Streep has been an absolute box-office hit in comedies, according to hollywoodnews.com. Films such as ‘Mamma Mia,’ ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ ‘Julie & Julia’ and ‘It’s Complicated’ have earned USD 1.3 bln at the box-office worldwide.

Despite ‘Sex and the City’ under-performing both commercially and critically, Sarah Jessica Parker ranked No. 2 with USD 916 M. At number 3 came former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actress Katherine Heigl, whose comedies have earned USD 773M over the last five years. Cameron Diaz comes in fourth, followed by Anne Hathaway, who was just cast as Catwoman in the next Batman instalment.
