Forbes' 'Top 10 Best Paid Actors' List


Will Smith (my favorite actor) has been named 'Hollywood's Highest Paid Actor' by Forbes' magazine.


Smith, 39, earned 80 million dollars in the past year to top the list of biggest earners, ahead of Johnny Depp, who earned 72 million dollars, reports the Daily Telegraph.


The continued success of Smith's movies across various genres means he is the first actor ever to have eight films in a row to break the 100 million dollars barrier at the box office.


Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers came in joint third with paychecks totaling 55 million dollars each.


Leonardo DiCaprio rounded out the top five with 45 million dollars in earnings.


Forbes' list of Top Ten Best Paid Actors in Hollywood:


1. Will Smith


2. Johnny Depp


3. Eddie Murphy (Tie)


4. Mike Myers (Tie)


5. Leonardo DiCaprio


6. Bruce Willis


7. Ben Stiller


8. Nicolas Cage


9. Will Ferrell


10. Adam Sandler

Am I the only person shocked to see that Eddie Murphy is on the list at all? I mean really nobody commented about that at all? I NEVER would have thought. My boy Bruce Willis made it. so I'm happy about that. Will Smith is everybodys guy thus the reason he is number 1.
