Tom Cruise, the richest Hollywood actor of all time, is known for his broad range of roles and his iconic persona. A seasoned actor with over a decade of experience in Hollywood, he has managed to reinvent himself time and again. As he moves into his age, his star power will only continue to grow and he has already earned millions.
Cruise is the quintessential male character actor of our times. He played rebellious teenagers in such classics as Wild Things and Vanilla Sky. His films are characterized by energy, adventure and sexuality. His distinctive portrayal of the character has made him an iconic figure in the world of cinema.
A devout Catholic, the youngest of three children of Italian immigrants, he grew up in New York City, a city synonymous with film noir. In particular, his memorable role asociant in the anti-heroine Crazy Heart earned him the role of an unlikely hero. He went on to play a number of tough, hard men in his later films. In the late eighties, he managed to combine acting skills with writing and produced a novel, A Few Good Men.
The richest Hollywood actor of all time is Ben Kingsley. He has achieved worldwide success mainly through two widely acclaimed films: Invictus and Man on the Moon. Like Cruise, Kingsley has been nominated for an Academy Award and has created a name for himself as one of Hollywood’s best actors. His two films have achieved worldwide popularity and are regarded as personal classics.
The third richest actor in the world, James Bond is known for his iconic portrayal of a secret agent. The character he was created to represent – Bond was no shrinking violet – made him the richest Hollywood actor. Even after so many successful films, Bond continues to be one of the most famous and best known actors in the world. In fact, he is probably the richest actor in the world when we consider his box office earnings.
The richest actor of our time, Kevin Spacey, is probably one of the greatest actors of all time. Spacey’s success is owed in large part to the TV shows that he appeared in, as well as his performances on the big screen. He has also written several best selling novels, including It’s About Time, Something’s Gotta Give and Don’t Take Me Alive. Spacey is also popular on the stage, where he plays lead characters. With his extensive acting career, it comes as no surprise that he is one of the richest actors in the world.
Another actor who is among the richest in Hollywood is Tobey Maguire. He is another great multi-talented performer who has made some blockbuster movies. His efforts at the box office have made him one of the richest actors in the world. One of his latest films, however, took home the award for Best Picture at the Oscars, despite missing out on the nomination due to some disputes. In terms of films vs. theatre, Maguire is currently tied with Robert DeNiro for the richest ever performer in Hollywood.
One actor who is not actually part of the biggest film industry in the world but is perhaps just as rich as the top richest actors in Hollywood, is Russell Martin. Martin has been married to Ava Gardner, the producer of the television show Doogie Howser for many years. They have two children, twins. If anything, this must make him the richest of the bunch.
One actor who is close to the top of the richest list is George Clooney. The main character in his movies, which range from big blockbusters to small independent films, has always been surrounded by riches. His latest film, ysis, won three Academy Awards and brought in over a billion dollars at the box office. Not bad for an independent film.
The richest Hollywood actor is probably Ben Kingsley. He has appeared in such films as Vanilla Sky, Money For Nothing and A Time to Kill. Kingsley has also had some success in his acting career, playing opposite Bruce Willis in the action films Kill Bill and Man on the Moon. At the moment, Kingsley is busy with the play Dead Man Walking, which he directed and starred in. The film has just started shooting in New York and is scheduled to start screening in May.
Perhaps the richest of them all is George Clooney. He has four of the richest film roles of all time, which include the ones mentioned above. However, there are those who would disagree with my ranking of the richest actors in Hollywood. After all, there are those who rank the richest actors in the world, based on their money. I have personally decided to rank them based on their talent, which is what makes them so rich.
