Top Earning Actors in Hollywood

When we talk about films in Hollywood, the salaries of these A-list stars always come to mind. These big names get moviegoers’ attention which enables films to increase the number of box office tickets bought. The main reason is to watch them act and perform. Movie producers do not have to buy traffic for websites that they created for the films. All they have to do is flash their names and see the ranking of the movie go up the charts.

Who are these celebrities who earned big last year? This is according to the Forbes list of top-earning actors in 2018.

George Clooney

You may not have much from this actor but he tops the list of the top-earning actors from Hollywood in 2018. It is mainly because of the sale of the tequila company Casamigos to Diageo. The total sale of the company amounted to $700 million. Big bucks earned by the former doctor in the TV show ER.

He has had his other accomplishments throughout his ongoing career. Aside from getting a yes from beautiful human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, he became one of Time’s Most Influential People in the World, a UN Messenger of Peace, and an Academy Award win for Best Supporting Actor in the movie Syriana.

He is estimated to have $239 million in 2018.

Dwayne Johnson

More commonly known as “The Rock” from his WWE days, this man has really become the rags-to-riches story of Hollywood. Compared to Clooney, he earned most of his 2018 paycheck mostly from his acting chops. Some of these include his stint as the host of the TV series The Ballers, and his movies Skyscraper and Jumanji. His earnings totaled more than $120 million.

Robert Downey Jr.

When his name Robert Downey JR. or RDJ as he is charmingly called by reporters and writers, is mentioned, Iron Man always comes to mind. It is because he has been known as the leader of the pack, the biggest top-billing name of the Marvel universe, and the reason why most of us watch superhero movies that we have today.

He has had his fair share of lowlights in his career. But now, RDJ is synonymous with box office draw. He got most of his earnings in 2018 because of the negotiations of his contract and his appearance in Marvel films that include Spiderman: Homecoming. Check out the tech blogs about Marvel here.
