Bradley Cooper 4th On Forbes List of World’s Highest Paid Actors
Today, Forbes released its annual list of the world’s highest-paid actors. For the first year, the list includes leading men working in international movie industries. This makes for a broader range of results, showing what film gods are making around the globe—and how their earnings compare to Hollywood’s film stars. You may not recognize many of these names, but rounding out the top 10 are a handful of Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.
On a hyper-local note, Jenkintown star Bradley Cooper is No. 4 on the list, with an estimated $41.5-million earning in 2015. Here’s what Forbes had to say about his year: “Bradley Cooper ranks highly thanks to his ability to balance popcorn cheese such as Aloha with Oscar-worthy fare including American Sniper. Cooper produced and starred in the latter, which was directed by Clint Eastwood after Steven Spielberg passed on the military epic. The only hangover from the bro trilogy Cooper hit the big time with is his production company, which he runs with Hangover director Todd Phillips.”
Rounding out the rest of the top five are Robert Downey Jr. (No. 1 with $80m), Jackie Chan (No. 2 with $50m), Vin Diesel (No. 3 with $47m) and Adam Sandler (No. 5 with $41m). Philly film star Will Smith is No. 18 with $26m. Besides some of the international entries, the rest is made up of names you’re likely quite familiar with—you know, Leo, George, Ben, Channing, folks like that. See the full list here.
