Best Paid Actors of 2014

Last year, the movie industry produced some truly box-office breaking blockbusters and the best paid actors of 2014 were all featured in these films. Although the names on this list will surely sound familiar, given their level of popularity and trajectory in the business, their earnings have varied significantly over the past decade, according to the roles they accepted. However, from action heroes to gangsters, these movie stars’ stellar performances have demonstrated that they’re worth every penny.

While the interpreters on this list earned their whopping salaries through more than one production in most cases, some casts have been adamant about retaining a specific actor for a part, thereby paying him fortunes. If you’re curious to see who the highest-paid actors for a single role are, check out our previous compilation. But for now, let’s take a look at the best paid actors of 2014.

7. Christian Bale

Earnings in 2014: $35 million

Last year was definitely a good one for the former Batman protagonist, Christian Bale. Not only did he receive his second Academy Award nomination as Best Actor for his role in the blockbuster American Hustle, he also landed the part as Moses in Ridley Scott’s massive production film of the Bible tale, Exodus. Considering that Bale has tackled several challenging character interpretations over the past decade, which in some cases included starving to reach a certain weight, his 2014 earnings seem pretty justified.

6. Ben Affleck

Earnings in 2014: $35 million

After demonstrating his directing abilities to the world, at the hand of his movie Fargo, Ben Affleck faced some hefty critique from bad-mouthers who claimed he wasn’t worthy of playing Batman in Warner Bros. latest production of the comic. However, his pay check was rather handsome and he’ll most likely stay on the list of best paid actors for the next couple of years.
