8. Adam Sandler, ($300 Million Dollars)
Adam Sandler has starred in dozens of movies, including Happy Gilmore and 51st Dates which are some of the best and funniest movies he’s ever been in (in my honest opinion). On top of being a very successful and talented actor, Adam is also a film producer, screenwriter and comedian and his career really took off after he has been included as a cast member in the Saturday Night Live show. While he is currently 47 years old, it seems that he still has that youthful and funny personality that we all love him for and continuing to star in blockbuster movies that make use love him even more.
7. Arnold Schwarzenegger, ($300 Million Dollars)
When talking about a legend like Arnold Schwarzenegger, it’s very hard to find the right words to talk about him and that is why most of us are simply in awe when thinking about him. Mostly known for his Terminator movies, Arnold is currently one of the most popular actors in the world. He is also one of the world’s most popular bodybuilders and has won multiple Mister Olympia titles back in the day. But he didn’t stop there. He went on to become the Governor of California for 8 years, starting ’03 and going all the way until ’11. Now that’s what you call a real legend!
6. Keanu Reeves ($350 Million Dollars)
Keanu Reeves has become a name that is synonymous with The Matrix series where he played the main character, Neo, a hacker that was living a normal life until he met Morpheus who revealed him the lie he was living in. Most of Keanu’s wealth comes from The Matrix movie series, but he also starred in many other great movies, such as Constantine, The Devil’s Advocate and Speed. Currently aged 49, Keanu is still going strong and some say that he may play in the rumored Matrix 4.
5. Tom Hanks ($390 Million Dollars)
Known for his roles in Saving Private Ryan and The Green Mile, Tom Hanks has managed to have a very long and successful career by playing extremely mature roles that have brought out the best in him. He is also a director, producer and screenwriter, managing to gather millions of fans from around the world who dearly love his work. To include some of the movies he starred in, they include Saving Private Ryan, The Da Vinci Code, Apollo 13 and Cast away.
4. Jack Nicholson, ($400 Million Dollars)
John Joseph Nicholson is an American writer, producer, film director and most of all, actor, who has been cast in dozens of movies and has given the genre “comedy” a whole new meaning. Jack Nicholson generally portrays challenging and unique roles, most of the times playing psychopathic and neurotic characters. His dark and strange sense of humor are practically infectious and are what makes us love him so much.
3. Johnny Depp ($450 Million Dollars)
Known mostly for his infectious and extremely well played role of Edward Scissorhands, Johnny Depp is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, especially given the fact that he later on starred in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. The franchise has since then become one of the most popular in the world and even though he is fifty years old, he looks around 35. It’s probably that and his talent the reasons to why he is still going strong and being chosen to play in a lot of movies.
2. Tom Cruise ($480 Million Dollars)
Ever since Top Gun, which is the movie that put Tom Cruise on the Hollywood map of the world’s greatest actors, Tom has been cast in a wide variety of movies, with some of the most popular ones being Mission Impossible, Minority Report, Rain Man and many others. At only fifty two years old, Tom’s net worth is around 480 million dollars and it seems that a lot of it (some say) may have to do with the fact that he has a perfect smile he knows how to flaunt. However, his acting talent is also incredible.
