Highest paid actors
It just so happened that a person’s success is determined by his wealth. And if you do not agree with this statement, tell the American Forbes magazine, which annually compiles a list of the highest paid models, musicians and actors. Today we’ll talk about male actors! We don’t know if the young people planted trees, whether they raised sons, but judging by their wealth, they definitely bought houses. And not one at a time, because the rating based on their earnings from June 1, 2017 to June 1 of this year, is as follows.
Chris Evans – 34 million dollars
The modern “Captain America” entered the top ten richest actors precisely thanks to the Marvel company, namely, the next part of “Avengers. Infinity War” (2018).
Salman Khan – $ 38.5 million
The Indian actor and TV presenter is considered one of the most popular stars in Bollywood. This year, the actor’s place in the ranking was brought by the sequel to the once-grossing hit “Once Upon a Time Tiger” (2012).
Adam Sandler – $ 39.5 million
As it turned out, the beloved “wedding singer” performs songs not only at special occasions, but simply in bars and concert venues. Such a combination of a hobby with the main activity allows Adam not only to shoot and act in films (the actor has a contract with the Internet giant Netflix to create four paintings), but also increase the artist’s income.
Akshay Kumar – $ 40.5 million
Last year was more than successful for the Indian film actor and producer Rajiv Hariom Bhatia (real name of the artist). The young man starred in two films: the drama “Project Pure India. A Love Story” (2017) and the biographical comedy about the life and ingenuity of Tamil social worker “Padman” (2018). It was they who brought him a happy seventh place in the ranking of the highest paid actors of this year.
Will Smith – 42 million dollars
This year, the actor not only had fun on Moscow land, but also starred in the fantasy action movie Brightness (2017), which brought him half of his annual income. By the way, already in the spring, the popular director Guy Ritchie will release a film adaptation of the popular animated film about the adventures of Aladdin, where Will Smith will play the role of a genie!
Jackie Chan – $ 45.5 million
Small, but daring. This is how one can characterize a popular actor who does not lose his relevance. Six films are proof of this. By the way, this year the actor not only played the main role in the action films Heart of Steel (2017) and Foreigner (2017), but also received his first Oscar for his contribution to cinema!
Chris Hemsworth – $ 64.5 million
Like Captain America, Thor is a favorite of the public. This year, Chris starred in several “Marvel” franchises, such as Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and Avengers: Infinity War (2017), which brought the actor 4th place in the ranking.
Robert Downey Jr – $ 81 million
Another character of the Avengers squad, he is also a “genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.” Tony Stark. Since last year, Robert Downey Jr. almost doubled last year’s income, then who knows, maybe he will soon repeat the fate of his character. He does not hold charm, charisma and talent, the only thing left is to change millions to billions!
Dwayne Johnson – 124 million dollars
What to hide, the very presence in the rating of the actors of the former wrestler surprises the audience, and the fact that “Skala” took the second place is simply shocking. Although, it would seem, why be amazed when Dwayne Douglas not only received a salary of $ 5.5 million for his first major role in the action movie “The Scorpion King” (2002), but also ended up in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest fee. Over the past year, Dwayne had several premieres at once – a remake of Jumanji: Call of the Jungle (2017), action movie Rampage (2018) and the sequel Rescue Malibu (2017).
George Clooney – $ 239 million
This handsome man needs no introduction. However, every year we are less and less seeing a two-time winner of the Oscar in the cinema. A reasonable question: “Where does the income come from ?!” It turns out last year George was not only engaged in the education of the twins, but also in the sale of his company for the production of tequila Casamigos Tequila. As a result, the deal was closed in the amount of about a billion dollars, and a palm was obtained in the ranking of the highest paid actors!
By the way, the Forbes rating calculated the income and actors of television. And here a big surprise awaited many, since the cast of the popular series “The Big Bang Theory” (2007-2019), which ends exactly next year, divided the first four positions. The first place went to Jim Parsons, his income was $ 26.5 million. It is worth noting that the screen bore Sheldon Cooper, whose role was played by Parsons, has not been losing its position for four years.
