Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most profitable actress of them all? We hear that Naomi Watts is the proud owner of that title.   She has topped Forbes.com’s latest Best Actresses for the Buck list after proving movie bosses can make the most money from her. Naomi has helped the box office rake in an estimated $44 for every $1 she was paid for her last three major films. The list’s top spots are notably filled by many actresses willing to accept a lower salary than A-list stars like Angelina Jolie – who was named Hollywood’s highest-earning actress by Forbes earlier this year. Jennifer Connelly, 38 took second place making an average $41 per dollar she was paid.  Meanwhile, Rachel McAdams finished third by turning low-budget films like ‘Red Eye’ and ‘The Notebook’ into significant hits.
