Sum-up

After scrolling down the list it can not have been too much of a surprise to see who the winning contenders were for this 'top' list given the numerous successful movies most of these actors have starred in, and in honesty none were really a surprise for myself as I was collecting the list data.

But, what this list if anything tells us is that the amount of money that can quite clearly be made in Hollywood is quite beyond belief, as it is Hollywood who paid the finance for all of these actors net worths.

Then again, who are we to judge, these are just career powerhouses who have taken their careers to an extent which has earned them the right to bigger pay checks. Really, it is Hollywood which is undeniably the hardest place to make a living, but as these stars have shown, it can make you a fortune if you pay your dues and never play it safe.
