Some of Hollywood’s Highest Paid Entertainers

Some of Hollywood's Highest Paid Entertainers

With the boom of streaming and the overall increase content, movie stars don’t shine as brightly as they did a decade ago, and can’t demand as large a pay packet as they once could decades ago

In the 1990s and early, entertainers such like Will SmithTom Hanks and Jim Carrey routinely commanded salaries of $20 million for every film they anchored, plus enjoyed substantial profit participation from the first ticket sold at the box office, but those days appear to be gone, and the number of actors who can demand pay packages on that order is ever dwindling.

But don’t weep for Hollywood’s A-listers — they’re doing just fine, thank you very much. A few actors, such as Dwayne JohnsonVin Diesel and Robert Downey Jr., can even still receive north of $20 million for a movie, though those checks are usually handed out for only major franchise installments and often are tied to reaching a significant number of box office milestones. Leo­nardo DiCaprio is worth approximately $20 million in a crowd-pleaser like “Inception,” but he’s slicing that in half for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
