This will make you feel even worse about yourself, here’s Americas top earning actors from last year:
Robert Downey Jr made $75 million bucks last year. That’s good work if you can get it. He’s quick, he’s handsome and ok, Iron Man 3 made a billion bucks. *He earns it.
Channing Tatum! What? 3 years ago you never even heard of him. He takes his shirt off in Magic Mike and gets $60 million for the year. Damn, more sit ups. *Not worth it.
Hugh Jackman made $55 million last year. Did I miss something? Oh yeah, Les Miserable. And I’m going to continue missing it! Bring on Wolverine. *I guess he earned it, but he didn’t get my $$
Mark Wahlberg (you may know him as Marky Mark) came in fourth. The dude crushes it every movie and made $52 million last year. *He earns it, plus Ted was Friggin’ hilarious!
The Rock, Dwayne Johnson! Holy crap, this guy is a monster. Remember when he was a wrestler? He is the $46 million dollar man now. What a year. A reality show, he wrestled, Pain and Gain, GI Joe, and Fast and Furious. Stat of the day: For more than ten weeks he’s had a movie in the top ten. That’s money. *Totally worth it, plus he lives here and listens to us, I think.
Leo DiCaprio Nobody I know saw the Great Gatsby, but it was enough for Leo to make $39 million, oh, and check out a little thing called Django Unchained. Plus he dates supermodels. *He’s talented and Tarrantino likes him.
Adam Sandler, go ahead and mock his films…he made $37 million last year. And that’s a bad year. *Nice guy, married a local gal, puts his friends in his movies. *worth it.
Tom Cruise, $35 million. He gets divorced and makes $35 million! *Worth it, he’s Tom freaking cruise.
Denzel Washington made $33 million and just may be the most talented actor alive. If you saw his performance in Flight, you’d know why. *Uh yeah.
Liam Neeson. $32 million. People say they knew what was going to happen in Taken two…YES! That’s why we went: To see Liam kick the crap out of those greesy kidnappers! *Totally worth it.
