With 2013 recently coming to an end, here is a look back at the top 10 grossing actors of the year.
Number 10 – Liam Neeson
Taken 2 might not have been the best sequel of all time, but because Taken was so good, Liam could demand a big pay day. That pay day landed him at no. 10 on our list.
Number 9 – Denzel Washington
One of the most unrelenting movies of 2013, Flight was a blockbuster that left its audience emotionally drained.
Number 8 – Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise made $35 million for Jack Reacher. But, $35 million had to be donated to the church of scientology. So, really, who cares?
Number 7– Adam Sandler
I tend to think Sandler is no longer relevant, but after looking at his 2013 paycheck, I stand corrected.
Number 6– Leonardo Dicaprio
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby just rang for Leo to play Jay Gatsby. And that he did. The movie that helped put a modern twist on a great book was filled with modern music, costume and more.
Number 5 – The Rock
I think this is why all those Europeans immigrated to the US around the turn of the century.
The US is the land of opportunity and there is no better example then this wrestler turned Hollywood superstar
Number 4 – Mark Wahlberg
Who would have thought a teddy bear sitting on the couch was a moneymaker?
Case in point Ted, which grossed $550 million with costs around $50 million.
Number 3 – Hugh Jackman
One of the best plays of all time finally made it to Hollywood.
Instead of granting the lead role to a singing and frolicking softy, the man known as Wolverine played the role and kicked ass in a different way.
Number 2 – Channing Tatum
If ever you wanted to see more on Tatum then Magic Mike was the film to see.
Ladies of all ages lined up to see this charming beauty strip off his clothes and collect a cool $60 million.
Number 1 – Robert Downey Jr
At one point in time, Downey Jr’s life looked to be heading in one of two directions. Death or jail.
However, after a number of arrests and failed movies, he finally turned things around. Currently, the Avengers ranks third all-time in highest grossing movies. As a result, Robert Downey Jr. tops our list.
