  1. Tom cruise, that guy he impress every living things and I know he will be number one in the coming years

  2. Sad that there is only two women on this list… blows my mind that some of the greats like Meryl Streep is only worth 90 million and Cate Blanchett is only worth 85 million… for people who don’t believe there is much of a wage gap… there you have it!

    • They are from Indian cinema dear. Read once about Shahrukh Khan, you will be impressed for sure. I never saw anyone did this much struggle and most importantly he himself predicted that “I will own the film industry” even in his early days of film career.

  3. I know Jerry Seinfeld is a comedian, but isn’t he also an actor? 950 million, odds are he might touch the big tonne before he reaches 70!

  4. Haha I wish I had the personality to make money but I’m lucky enough to retire on $1900.00 a month. At least I can feed my cat “Panther”. 😊

  5. Unbelievable that Americans will pay thousands of dollars for entertainment, while watching millions of Americans living on the streets hungry. And, other professional like Doctors and nurses work their butts off, save lives, and they barely make anything. What’s wrong with this picture Americans!!!!!

  6. I did not know that about Jamie Gertz!! That is so awesome!! Her, Meredith Salinger and Winona Ryder are some of my favorite actresses from the 80’s!! Jamie went from playing a girl named Star on The Lost Boys to the number 1 highest grossing Star!!πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸ’πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

  7. So, according to this list, the best way to be a wealthy actor, is to marry a billionaire…

    Not sure that should really be counted, to be fair, when the others have actually made their wealth through acting.
