The Hollywood film industry is also the most profitable industry in the world, with the earnings of the actors working in it skyrocketing.
The year 2022 turned out to be a great year for Hollywood, with several films flying flags at the box office while some franchises made good money with their sequels.
Like filmmakers, this year has been great for actors as well, with films featuring many big stars including Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tom Cruise doing record-breaking business.
As we’re at the end of 2022, here are the five highest-paid Hollywood stars.
As soon as Tom’s name comes up, the name of the film ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, which is the sequel to Top Gun, released this year, comes to mind.
The film’s sequel was released almost three decades later, but it was a box office hit, grossing $1.37 billion.
According to foreign media estimates, Tom Cruise earned 100 million US dollars this year along with the film.
Will Smith, who slapped comedian Chris Rock during this year’s Oscars, has been on the low side of fame, but fortune has been kind to him in terms of earnings.
The 54-year-old American actor continued to travel to heights in terms of earnings after the release of the film ‘Emance Passion’.
He earned 3.5 million US dollars (about 7.9 billion Pakistani rupees) this year.
Leonardo DiCaprio earned US$30 million, just $5 million less than Will Smith, who is second on the list.
DiCaprio has had a great year this year, with his upcoming film ‘Colors of the Flower Moon’ earning him $30 million.
Brad Pitt tied with Leonardo DiCaprio in terms of earnings. He also earned 3 crore US dollars this year.
The main reason for the star actor’s earnings is the deal with Apple Studios that will earn him this amount.
The show based on F1 will be hosted by Brad Pitt, but the name of the show has not been revealed yet.
Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. Da Rock is in fifth place among the Hollywood stars who earn the most money this year.
Dwayne Johnson’s debut as Blake Adams in a superhero film has not been great, and it is being speculated that he may not be seen in DC Comics movies again.
However, according to foreign media, Dwayne Johnson won the hearts of his fans with his character Blake Adams. Due to the film, he earned a total of 22.5 million dollars this year.
