20 highest grossing actors in Hollywood by US box office earnings
The best actors in the world all have something special that others do not. Even though there are many box office stars working today, the highest grossing actors in Hollywood movie history have always stood out from the rest.
Each of these film stars listed below, have amassed an outstanding record in terms of US box office earnings.
Many people may not be aware that when it comes to this area of the entertainment industry, even an actor with great acting talent and a good blockbuster record, can flop horribly in their very next movie.
It has been happening since the golden days of Hollywood and it will keep happening as long as the actors , movie makers and fans are the main deciders for success. Unfortunately, the three ingredients don’t always mix well. But when they do, lean back and relax, because you have a blockbuster on your hands!
As you may have figured, being a bankable star is no small potatoes. The fans can love your movie today and tank it tomorrow. And when an actor or actress is able to consistently come out on top of the Box office race, they ultimately become the most successful actors of all time. That is the reason why you just have to take your hat off to the following stars who have captured our attention and adoration. They have achieved success by combining talent, versatility, and longevity to appear in blockbuster hit after hit over the years. If it were easy to do this, then the list below will be much longer. But I will focus on the top twenty in this elite category of A listers. And we will show only the overall US Box office earnings of each actor, and not the worldwide gross. Get it? Cool, lets roll along shall we.
But on the other hand some stars like the irreplaceable Samuel L. Jackson, for instance have quietly crept up on the louder names and become the highest-earning actor in the history of the U.S. box office.
