Forbes highest-paid actors: George Clooney tops list, Akshay Kumar at No. 7 and Salman Khan at No. 10
George Clooney has been named the worlds highestpaid actor of the last year, beating Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Robert Downey Jr to the title
George Clooney has been named the world's highest-paid actor of the last year, beating Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Robert Downey Jr to the title.
The Hollywood star topped Forbes' annual list after making $239m (£185m) between June 2017 and June 2018.
Clooney's pre-tax earnings were the most any actor in history has made over a 12-month period, the magazine said.
His massive income was largely from the sale of the tequila company he co-founded - Casamigos - to global liquor company Diageo in a $1bn (£790m) deal.
Wrestler-turned-actor Johnson was second on Forbes' list after nearly doubling his previous year's earnings, making $119m (£92m).
Meanwhile, Iron Man star Downey Jr came in third with his income of $79m (£61.2m).
The top six highest-paid actors each made more than the top-earning actress, Scarlett Johansson, who took home $40.5m (£31.4m) last year.
