Must Read

The highest paid actor in Hollywood is Tom Cruise who earned more that $100 million for Top Gun: Maverick, followed by Will Smith at $35 million for his upcoming film Emancipation. Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and Joaquin Phoenix all earned between $20-30 million.

Tom, who stars in Top Gun: Maverick, and has also produced the hit film, is reportedly expected to make more than $100 million thanks to box office earnings, his fee, as well as his cut from streaming revenues. Top Gun: Maverick released in May and reportedly earned $1.2 billion globally, making it the first Tom Cruise movie to pass the billion-dollar mark at the box office, according to Hindustan Times.

“I would never bet against Tom Cruise. Most actors aren’t worth what you pay them, but Cruise and maybe Dwayne Johnson justify their salaries,” a movie executive told Variety.
