|American essayist, poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.” That’s very noble, but Hollywood feels differently. There, it’s all about celebrity, the public’s adoration, and most importantly, MONEY. This quiz is about the ten performers who are the biggest movie stars ever, based solely on the total box office revenue generated by the films in which they have participated. |
The list includes performers ONLY, not producers, writers, directors, cinematographers, special effects guys or other crew. The data behind this quiz was obtained from www.the-numbers.com on February 6, 2009. The figures represent the total amount of U.S. revenue generated by all the movies a star has appeared in over his lifetime to date, and are not adjusted for inflation. The performers were not necessarily in starring roles in every film for which they are credited – many were minor parts.
The guy in the picture may not be a household name or a familiar face, but he is most certainly on the list. And yes, the top ten individuals are all male. The first woman on the list comes in at position #14.
