  1. How about Jerry Seinfeld last reports I read he was worth 950 million which should put him in 2nd place or is he not considered an actor??

  2. Jami Gertz still number 1! And nobody would even think that shes under the 100 most rich Actors because they only know her as the Girl in “The Lost Boys”.

  3. My two favorite actors of all time is Tom Hank and Kieanu Reeves.Tom Hanks in particularly an excellent actor portraying true life people. I love him in,” Catch Me If You Can,” & “Sully.” Etc. And Kieanu can play very good sentimental characters and really draw you in. I wish Johnny Depp was here cause I liked him since 21 Jump Street; tv series.I also really liked him in ” Secret Window,” & “Pirates of the Caribbean,” are my favorite 2 favorite movies he’s in.

    • Tom Hanks ? Frequent flyer to Jeff Epstiens Island. Moved to Greece and deactivated social media when Epstein Islands flight log released and the public began to openly post to him about his hidden sexual acts on that island. certainly may have been a good actor, but nowadays he should not be respected whatsoever.

  4. Who really gives a dam. They are all well over payed just for doing a simple act of acting. With all of the special effects and actor seconds, l do believe that most anyone could do what the 20 richest actors do.

    • Yep. I’ve voiced this on many occasions and platforms, as well as writing a twenty-five page essay on the topic during my MEL degree (about twelve years ago now). The number of incredibly rich and successful actors that don’t have a high school diploma, or do, but nothing more, is astounding. So many have no formal training whatsoever – clear proof that it isn’t some great feat deserving of embarrassing wealth and influence. A bit of practice and workshops are about all one needs to start their ‘right place at the right time’ hunt.

      To be clear, I do not believe an individual needs extensive education to be successful, but it’s so prevalent in the world of three walls that it needs to be addressed, especially when considering the extent of their influence and wealth.

      Directors, screenwriters, and authors are where knowledge, hard work, talent and imagination lives, but even there many have crawled under the fence while we had our backs turned, such as most YA authors. If anyone can’t make peace with this, make a list of your favorite child authors, writers, and directors. A ten and eleven-year-old have won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, and many nominees have been in the single digits.

      • Gag. Cruise is garbage. He’s unattractive, weird (and not the good weird), he’s creepy, among a multitude of other derogatory adjectives.

  5. There is another one that is almost guaranteed to be on the list, actually near the top, but I can’t find it confirmed anywhere – Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She isn’t the multi-billionaire that was reported in years past, but she is certainly close to the billionaire mark.

    She is worth $250 million from her own earnings, and also split a $4 billion dollar inheritance with her siblings and stepmother after her father’s death in 2016. I imagine it was a significant sum, one that only needs to be $100 million to make the list. I have also heard on multiple occasions that she is highly intelligent, but to date has not been confirmed.

  6. Selma Hayek is married to François Henri Pinault who’s worth $7 billion, which would make her the richest actress. His money’s her money.

      • Ben – Your snark reveals ignorance about Oprah’s acting career. The film that launched her acting career was “The Color Purple” in 1984. Her most recent films were “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” 2017, and “A Wrinkle in Time,” 2018. That’s 34 years of film acting, and doesn’t include many appearances in TV series episodes over decades.

  7. It’s kind of a sad commentary on our culture’s NITWIT, warped values & priorities when actors, athletes, and Net fakers & software thieves such as Gates or Zuckerberg or Bezos, et al, are among the wealthiest in society, while doctors, scientists & competent teachers are so much lower on the totem pole. Kardashians as “stars,” anyone? D-U-U-U-H-H. It’s all, like, so amazingly amazing, D-U-U-U-H-H.
