[size=34]George Clooney is named Hollywood's highest paid actor after earning $239 million in just 12 months (but from his tequila firm not films) - which is more than the top 10 actresses put together[/size]


  • Clooney topped Forbes' annual list of pay in June 1, 2017, to same date this year

  • Most of his cash was from selling his tequila brand as he appeared in no films

  • Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson came in second just like last year with $119 million

  • The top 10 actreses, in a list released last week, only made $186 million total

George Clooney is Hollywood's highest-paid actor of 2018 after collecting $239 million in over the past 12 months.
The Oceans 11 star took back top spot on Forbes' annual list from Mark Wahlberg after not even making the top 10 last year.
Most of his giant earnings didn't come from acting paychecks but from the sale of Casamigos Tequila, which he co-founded in 2013, netting him $233 million.

Highest paid actors of 2018 


1. George Glooney $239 million
2. Dwayne Johnson $124 million
3. Robert Downey Jr $81 million
4. Chris Hemsworth $64.5 million
5. Jackie Chan $45.5 million
6. Will Smith $42 million
7. Akshay Kumar $40.5 million
8. Adam Sandler $39.5 million
9. Salam Khan $37.7 million
10. Chris Evans $34 million
Total: $748.5 million 




The 57-year-old didn't appear in any films at all between the June 1, 2017, to the same date this year time frame, but was paid for several Nespresso ads.
Many of the other actors on the list also made much of their money from extracurricular sources, or raked in bulk cash from big-budget film franchises. 
Two-time Oscar winner Clooney's film and television production company Smokehouse also produced Ocean's 8 which was released in June and made $300 million.
The spin-off of Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's blockbusters featured an all-female cast including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway. 
The top 10 actors tallied $748.5 million between them, far outstripping the $186 made by million the top 10 actresses in Forbes' list released last week.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was in second for a consecutive year with $124 million

Robert Downey Jr came in third after the success  ($81 million)
Scarlett Johansson knocked La La Land star Emma Stone off the top of that list after taking in $40.5 million in the same time frame.
Clooney fended off former WWE wrestler Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson who was in second for a consecutive year with $124 million.
Johnson's earnings rose to $119 million after starring in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle and monster movie Rampage, which made more than $400 million.


Jackie Chan remained the highest-paid actor outside the U.S. in fifth, tapping into a massive Chinese market, but his earnings fell to $45 million from $49 million in 2017.
Other international stars in the top 10 include Bollywood star Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan.
Avengers actors Robert Downey Jr ($81 million), Chris Hemsworth ($64.5 million), and Chris Evans ($34 million) all made the list in third, fourth, and tenth respectively.

Scarlett Johansson was the highest-paid actres after taking in $40.5 million in the same time frame
They raked in big salaries and commissions from the superhero franchise after Avengers: Infinity War made more than $2 billion as the biggest film of the year.
The trio have also already shot part two of Infinity War, which comes out next year, and likely collected base salaries for that movie already.
There was also a return to the list for Will Smith who netted $42 million to claim sixth spot, and Adam Sandler was two spots further down with $39.5 million.
Both actors appeared to make little of their earning from theatrical films, relying on other sources such as endorsements and outside ventures.
Sandler starred in animated children's film Hotel Transylvania 3, which grossed $426 million and appeared in two Netflix movies.
Smith only starred in the critically panned but frequently downloaded Netflix fantasy film Bright, but may have had backend earnings from 2016 superhero flick Suicide Squad, which took in $746.8 million.

It’s me, according to the Forbes list George came in second as highest paid ‘celebrity’, but he was the highest paid ‘actor’ of 2017.

I don't think I've understood correctly: he earned all that money in one year?

I’m not going to sugar coat this .... 1,000,000 Euro’s please..... I’ve been a really really loyal fan for a really really long time now.... Sometimes that’s been a struggle, a hard load to carry but I have done it joyfully... I’ve even got a Nespresso machine and I’m only an occasional coffee drinker..... but rest assured the money will be wisely  spent.....

BTW... this will be gross... I’ll look after the net liability.....Thanking you in anticipation XXX


BBTW... That is indeed a very handsome picture of you in the DM.... one of the best... though it is hard, very hard to pick the best with such a rich tapestry of handsomeness to choose from....XXX

Yes, Doug Ross, that's right.

Doug Ross - The three partners split the billion three ways. Still, a LOT of money for a business started by accident.

@IM... I would go 50/50 with you .... but truth to tell I’ve heard zippo, not a dickie, not a whisper...I kind of hoped for a PM from a PR person asking for my IBAN and BIC ... not a word....

I can only conclude that he has been throwing money around like snuff at a wake, and might be down to his last million.... Let’s keep our fingers crossed that soon he will be financially embarrassed enough to do one of those “ Win a date with Clooney” fundraisers..... To Starbucks and I’ll pay for the mocha’s....
