The Top 10 Richest Actors in the World

One notable fact in ranking the richest actors in the world is that no women are even in the top 15. It’s important to realize the historical imbalances in wages between the sexes in movies, as even today, the most famous female actors don’t get the same compensation as their male counterparts. Yet, regardless of their sex, most people that seek acting as a career path desire to be rich and famous.

The actors on this list represent those who have turned their fame into some of the largest monetary fortunes in the film industry. Moreover, there are many entertainers who have an entrepreneurial side, and we recently listed 4 business strategies that turned Jamie Oliver into the worlds richest chef, which often go well beyond just their core business (in that case cooking, in this case acting).

Perhaps one day soon a woman will be on this list, but for now, let’s take a look at the ten richest actors in the world.

10. Adam Sandler: $340 Million

Sandler has long been a staple of the comedic world. What some people don’t know is just how successful Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions company has been. While they’ve never been critically acclaimed, Sandler’s older movies such as Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore are classics and deserve all the praise they did and continue to receive. What’s especially impressive though, is how Sandler has been able to continue making box office hits even if the movies themselves are not overly enjoyable. I mean, Grown Ups got a sequel and it actually made money, which says something in itself.

9. Clint Eastwood: $370 Million

Eastwood has succeeded in both his duries as an actor and director in Hollywood. He’s been known for making hit action films and was thought of as a heartthrob throughout the prime of his career. Yet, with movies such as “Gran Torino,” he has shown an ability to gracefully shift into the latter phase of his acting career.

8. Bill Cosby: $380 Million

Known for his role on the “Cosby Show,” which was the number one show in the country for five straight years, Bill Cosby has amassed large sums of money doing all sorts of things over his career. He has worked with cigar companies and pudding companies, and has continued to release standup specials while doing so.
