      Great List! You don't think Tom Cruise would make this list?! You think Will Ferrell or Eddie Murphy are worth more than Brad Pitt or Harrison Ford?

      Arnold alone is worth more than $200 million dollars as disclosed when her ran for Governor. Double check your source.

      Uhm. What? lol. The fact that you thought Adam Sandler @ $29.5 million was a lot. How much do other actors make? Does Brad Pitt make $1 million a movie?

      From what I understand, I think Mel Gibson made about $200,000,000+ from his participation in the Passion of Christ. Yea.

      I'd like to see them try to run a small country on $30 mil. Sierra Leone, which is often considered the poorest country in the world, has a GDP of $4 billion. Hell, some of these actors probably couldn't afford to pay some billionaires electric bills.

      IMDB 7 years ago

      This list is so off. Check IMDB. Adam Sandler/HappyMadison is probably worth at least 5 times 29.5 mil. I don't know about Wil Ferrel. Ben Stiller is worth way more. Bruce Willis got 100 mil... yes 100 million for The Sixth Sense with the back end. I don't know about Dicaprio. Check how much everybody who was in shrek made 4 just that movie. Depp was paid 70 mil up front for the new Pirates movie. Wil Smith I don't know. Whoever made this list will tell you that ARod's net worth is around 20 million or Kobe makes 50 dollars an hour.

      These numbers are all wrong, very wrong.

      This site is waaay off. There is no way Will Smith at #1 is only worth 80 mil. Also, John Travolta isn't even on there & if he's worth less than 29 mil he would never be able to afford that mansion & Jet he owns just on maintenance alone. Also, Arnold is worth about $900 mil, that was on VH1. Tom Cruise made like $200 mil for War of the Worlds just in profit sharing. Forbes will tell u that David Rockefeller is worth $1 billion, how u figure that when John D. Rockerfeller was worth like 20 bil when he died, which is the equivelant of $323 bil today & David Rockerfeller is the main heir to the family business. There people are only required on Forbes to list a certain amount of what they make.

      Smallville 6 years ago

      The net worth for these actors are based on what they make annually, not for their lifetime. Will Smith is currently worth over $400 Mil while Shah Rukh Khan (Bollywood) actor is worth over $540 Mil as of 2008, so the figures for all these actors has gone up. Shah Rukh Khan will be the most famous actor in the world with over 1 Bil fans and the riches as well with about $600 Mil or more in 2010. Will Smith will probably have to come second place, but I'm unsure of that, but no matter what him and Shah Rukh Khan are my favorite actors.

      This is surely a load of bull, I'm sure John Travolta has a private jet that cost him about $60 million, and you're trying to tell me he doesn't have more than Sandler? Plus, where is Brad Pitt? Even Daniel Ratcliff has more than half this list, he has made around £40 million (That's pounds not dollars) from the Harry Potter movies. Get your facts straight before you go posting lists like this.

They should give some of that mega money to poorer familys in india/pakistan and poorer countrys ie Poland or israel and buy 1st class plane tickets to other countrys in the world rather than them sneaking in via container ships etc.... or since the war in iraq/iran is a big drain on our countrys resouces they could always support our troops...

      I think it's obvious that this list is probably only talking about the amount that each of these actors made in the year that Forbes originally published it (although I agree with Wally above, that this isn't made clear).

      Their actual net worth is (in all likelihood) considerably more because there are now at least a dozen Hollywood actors (this includes 'female actors' (what a stupid terminology!)) who have personally earned (pre-tax) more than one billion dollars from movies and other ventures. Even after taxation and living the most excessive Hollywood lifestyle, it's difficult to see that all of THEM could be worth less than one hundred million dollars and that Keanu Reeves (whose confirmed take from the 3 "Matrix" movies was at least two hundred million dollars pre-tax) could fail to make the list at all.

      how can worth is as low as shown ...if u check wiki than u will find out many of them actually produce movies which generate millions of profits in case of profitable venture ...for example karate kid which is mainly produced by will smith generate more than 300 million dollar ..if u compare that with profits u will find out their actual worth ...and other than than their brand endorsement ..advertisement revenue ...movie fees ...all give you best criteria to find out their actual worth ...and if you wanna see their worth ..just as a case check their home prices they brought ...and u can take example of most likely will smith ...

      Terrible list. This has to be one year's salary for them. Adam Sandler has been getting $20 million a film for the last decade. Now way is he only worth $29.5 million. Dicaprio got 5% of Titanic's gross income -- which was $1.8 million. This does not include the 20 million a picture he's been getting since then. So there is no way he is only worth $43 million.
