The Highest Paid Actors and Actresses in Hollywood | 2017

By  | 

Every year, Forbes releases their list of the highest paid actors and actresses in Hollywood. For us regular folk, this is the reminder of just how much our favorite celebrities make in one year. Sadly for the women of Hollywood, the first lady to crack this list doesn’t even make the top 10… and she earned over $40 million less than the #1 earner on this list.

Forbes calculates the data using many factors. Forbes says the “earnings estimates are based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders. All figures are pretax and scored between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017; fees for agents, managers, and lawyers are not deducted.” Which celeb on this list surprised you?
