Her personal life has had its ups and downs in the last year but professionally Sandra Bullock couldn’t be hotter – or richer.

The Oscar winner, 46, has been named Hollywood’s highest-paid actress by Forbes magazine, with an estimated $56 million in earnings from June 2009 to June 2010.

And Bullock, who was the eighth most powerful star in the magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 list, sits at the top for a good reason: Her romantic comedy The Proposal grossed $320 million at the box office on a $40 million budget and The Blind Side scored an impressive $310 million.

Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz tied for No. 2 on the list, which was determined by the stars’ upfront pay on movies they are currently shooting, in addition to back-end pay given after a movie was released. The magazine also factored in earnings from perfume and clothing lines and ad campaigns.

Jennifer Aniston raked in with $27 million, followed by Sarah Jessica Parker with $25 million and Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie each with $20 milllion.
