The world’s highest paid actors this year tallied up a grand total of $748.5 million between June 1, 2017, and June 1, 2018. With a starting salary of $34 million, these leading men are building a serious stash of cash from their hard work on both the big screen and small screen. And in some cases, even off-screen. Two of the top earners in Tinseltown have cracked the hundred million mark this year, a salary of blockbuster proportions.
