Forbes magazine has named newcomer Mia Wasikowska the highest grossing actress in Hollywood. Not familiar with her? She starred in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," the second-highest-earning movie this year, with $1.03 billion at the box office.

Wasikowska also starred in "The Kids Are All Right," which made $29 million at the global box office. She will appear in the upcoming film "Jane Eyre."

The Australian actress broke through to international acclaim with her role as self-defeating Olympic-hopeful gymnast Sophie on the HBO series drama "In Treatment" in 2008.
