GEORGE CLOONEY TOPS FORBES’ LIST OF HIGHEST-PAID ACTORS

Buoyed by the sale of Casamigos Tequila, George Clooney topped Forbes’ list of highest-paid actors in 2017. Between June 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018, Clooney made $239 million, more money than any other actor has ever, Forbes found.

But don’t cry for everyone else in Hollywood. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson came in at No. 2, with an estimated $124 million pre-taxes. Much of that is thanks to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Robert Downey Jr. rounded out the top 3 with $81 million.

All told, the top 10 made $748.5 million between June 1, 2017, and June 1, 2018, before fees and taxes. The top-earning female stars earned $186 million in the same period, or just one quarter of their male cohorts' paydays.
