Forbes Magazine’s Annual List of the Highest Paid Actors in Hollywood

4 Aug

Here’s some mildly interesting yet perfectly useless pop cultural information that you can drop at a dinner party this weekend. Forbes Magazine has released its annual list of the highest paid actors in Hollywood. At the very top of the list is Leonardo DiCaprio, who has apparently raked in $77 million in the past year. Johnny Depp was a not particularly close second, with $50 million.

1. Leonardo DiCaprio ($77 million)
2. Johnny Depp ($50 million)
3. Adam Sandler ($40 million)
4. Will Smith ($36 million)
5. Tom Hanks ($35 million)
6. Ben Stiller ($34 million)
7. Robert Downey, Jr. ($31 million)
8. Mark Wahlberg ($28 million)
9. Tim Allen ($22 million)
10. Tom Cruise ($22 million)
11. Jim Carrey ($20 million)
12. Daniel Craig ($20 million)
13. Robert Pattinson ($20 million)
14. Brad Pitt ($20 million)
15. Matt Damon ($18 million)

Forbes state, “To compile our earnings numbers we talked to agents, lawyers, producers and other industry insiders to come up with an estimate for what each actor earned between May 1, 2010 and May 1, 2011. Earnings consist of pretax gross income. Management, agent and attorney fees are not deducted.”
