Oscar-nominated actress Reese Witherspoon is set to surpass Julia Roberts as Hollywood's highest paid actress. She is expecting a pay check of some 30 million dollars for appearing in the supernatural thriller "Our Family Trouble," according to reports Monday.
Southern belle Witherspoon, 29, has an advantage: She is producing the movie and can essentially write her own paycheck. The movie is about a mother fighting demons that possess her child in Witherspoon's native South. Part of Witherspoon's salary is dependent on the success of the movie.
If she does earn the 30 million dollars, she would surpass Roberts, who was the first woman to break into the "all boys club" of 20 million dollar pay packets with "Erin Brockovich" in 2000. She then earned a record 25 million dollars in 2003 for Mona Lisa Smile.
