Hollywood actors and celebrities are some of the highest paid professionals the world has to offer. Very few make it to the top, and often it’s not a question of talent but a question of luck. These are the top-grossing actors of 2017 according to Forbes magazine.
It’s hard to imagine just how much money some of these actors make, but it’s not surprising that men are still the top earners, showing further proof that there is a pay gap between men and women. The following list is not based on actual wages earned, rather it is based on the total box office success of their films (as reported by Box Office Mojo, a box-office reporting service owned by IMDB).
Perhaps 2018 will prove to be different, but for now here is a list of the top grossing actors of 2017 according to Forbes.
