At a cool $77 million in earnings, from the aforementioned Christopher Nolan film and Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island,” Leo took the top spot on Forbes’ list from the previous year’s winner, Johnny Depp.
Depp came in with a considerably lower (but still considerable) $50 million for his “Pirates of the Caribbean” paycheck and bonuses. Forbes looked at earnings from May 2010 to May 2011.
On his heels was Adam Sandler, who tallied personal receipts around $40 million from the biggest earner of his career, the recent “Grown Ups,” and his Jennifer Aniston-starrer, “Just Go With it.”
Will Smith clocked in at No. 4 with a $36-million income — impressive as the actor, who’s been busy promoting and producing for his children Jayden and Willow, hasn’t been visible on marquees for the last two years. Forbes said the dollar amount consists mostly of his fees for the upcoming “Men in Black III.”
Rounding out the list were Tom Hanks, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Wahlberg, Tim Allen ($22 million in pay and residuals from voicing Buzz Lightyear in the “Toy Story” franchise) and Tom Cruise.
