Jennifer Lawrence has been named Forbes Magazine's highest-grossing film star for 2014, followed closely by Chris Pratt.

The Oscar-winner earned the title thanks to her highly successful X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. The films are believed to have grossed $1.4 billion at the box office worldwide during this calendar year. Mockingjay is still in theaters and still raking in the money, so the count will likely grow.

While Lawrence may be raking it in for the studios, she is the second highest-paid actress after Sandra Bullock, earning $34 million from June 2013 to June 2014.

Last year, Lawrence, who also topped Google's trending actress list for 2014, was in the 10th spot, grossing an estimated $700 million, while Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was the magazine's 2013 most bankable film star, grossing $1.3 billion.

In 2014's No. 2 spot is the actor everyone loves, Chris Pratt. His films, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie grossed an estimated $1.2 billion worldwide. According to the magazine, Marvel's comic book-inspired Guardians will likely be the year's highest grossing film domestically.

Scarlett Johansson came in third with $1.18 billion at the global box office, followed by Mark Wahlberg and Chris Evans in the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.
