The rankings of the ten richest Hollywood actors vary each year depending on the number of movies they have released. However, although their rankings vary every year, one thing remains constant, their names will appear on the list of either the highest paid or one of the richest in Tinseltown. Forbes Magazine has compiled some of the top Hollywood earners based on conversations with managers, lawyers, producers and agents, as well as checks from ad campaigns.
This poster boy for Scientology has been hailed multiple times as the richest actor in Hollywood. Forbes Magazine estimates Tom Cruise to be worth around $624 million. His “Mission Impossible” franchise guarantees him a stable source of box office revenue.
In 2010, he earned US$22 million from “Sherlock Holmes” and “Iron Man 2.” He used to be the quintessential bad boy as he battled addiction and a flailing career. He has since made up for lost time and earnings by starring in one box office hit after another.
