Congrats to George Clooney, who is Forbes‘ highest paid actor of the year!
Wait… what blockbuster movies was Clooney in again? Did Suburbicon secretly make a billion dollars??
Nope. The Ocean’s 11 (but not 8) star earned $239 million from between June 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018 thanks mostly to the billion dollar purchase of his tequila brand, Casamigos.
That’s how he beat Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who made $124 mil with big hits like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and not-as-big hits like Rampage.
3rd and 4th place were both taken by Avengers as Robert Downey Jr. continued his 10-year Iron Man streak with $81 million and Chris Hemsworth called the thunder to the tune of $64.5 mil.
See the whole top ten (below):
George Clooney — 239 million
Dwayne Johnson — 124 million
Robert Downey Jr. — 81 million
Chris Hemsworth — 64.5 million
Jackie Chan — 45.5 million
Will Smith — 42 million
Akshay Kumar — 40.5 million
Adam Sandler — 39.5 million
Salman Khan — 38.5 million
Chris Evans — 34 million
Clooney by a landslide! LOLz!
Hey, movies are groovy, but liquor is quicker!
