To satisfy your curiosity, we’ve come up with an updated list of the richest, highest-paid actors in the world. What are we waiting for then? Let’s get on to the list of the richest actors and their net worths!

10. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Who was once a professional and one of the most iconic bodybuilders in the world, the young stud ventured out into the film industry where he’s found his home in the big screens. With projects such as The Terminator trilogy and Conan the Barbarian, the true muscle of the industry hits big. 

As of 2020, Schwarzenegger’s net worth is at $400 million––making him the tenth richest actor in the world and the richest bodybuilder in the world.  

9. Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone is one of the most renowned American actors for the past few generations. With titles such as Rocky and Rambo to his name, his repertoire of highest-grossing films seems to be infinite, at this point. 

Stallone’s net worth is estimated to be close to half a billion, coming in at nearly $400 million as of this year, 2020. 

8. Jack Nicholson

If you’ve watched a handful of Los Angeles Lakers games, then you’ve seen this man more than you’ve seen the players. Who doesn’t love a little bit of Nicholson magic? Jack Nicholson has, and is still having, one of the most fruitful careers in Hollywood history. He’s become not only an actor, but also a producer and a writer hailing from The Big Apple, New York City. His resume boasts of projects such as The Cry Baby Killer, The Raven, and who could forget The Shining

At number nine, Nicholson’s net worth is also a whopping $400 million as of 2020. 

7. Amitabh Bachchan

Bollywood has been one of the biggest sources of entertainment not just in India, but all around the world. One of their biggest names, however, comes in the form of Amitabh Bachchan––one of the richest Bollywood stars of all time. 

In 2020, his net worth is also $400 million––pretty impressive for someone who’s not from Hollywood. 

6. Adam Sandler

Arguably the most loved person in entertainment history, Adam Sandler has made a name for himself in plenty of films. However, he hasn’t only been an actor. Much like that of Nicholson, he’s also a film producer. 

Sandler’s top five highest-grossing films include Hotel Transylvania, Grown-Ups, Grown-Ups 2, Click, and Big Daddy––all surpassing $230 million. That’s the power of Sandler. 

As of 2020, he sits at a massive net worth of $420 million with an equal number of fans. Rock on, Sandler!

5. Mel Gibson

Gibson has served his purpose of becoming one of the most inspirational actors to ever grace this earth. A film director on one hand, a producer on the other, and an actor on whatever limb he can carry it on. His projects include The Passion of the Christ, Signs, What Women Want, and Braveheart for which he was a recipient of the Academy Award and the Golden Globe in 1995. 

His net worth sits only $5 million above Sandler’s at $425 million, putting him 5th on the richest actors list in 2020. 

4. Robert De Niro

The man, the myth, and the legend known as Robert De Niro has existed for generations––and so does his rich career. With both past and present works with the industry, no wonder this man was included in the list of the richest actors! However, in recent years, he’s starred in Meet the Fockers and The Intern but no one will ever forget his name in The Godfather Part II

As of this year, De Niro’s net worth comes at a huge $500 million.

3. George Clooney

One of the most prestigious and decorated American actors and directors in the world, George Clooney hails from the land of Kentucky. With outstanding performances in Ocean’s Eleven, Syriana, and Three Kings, Clooney has never been out of the conversation for the best generational actors. 

Along with his handful of accolades and awards, his net worth sits at $500 million.

2. Tom Cruise

Arguably the best action-starring celebrity in the world, Tom Cruise has made a solid name for himself. What goes unnoticed, however, is that his career’s top ten grossing films all surpass $250 million. Put this man’s name in any movie and you’re sure to beat the box office. 

As of 2020, Tom Cruise’s net worth stands at $570 million––making him the second richest actor in the world. 

1. Shah Rukh Khan

It isn’t a list of the richest actors in the world if it doesn’t include Shah Rukh Khan––”The King of Bollywood”. Under his belt, he boasts 80 Hindi movies and has been the recipient of multiple awards both locally and internationally for his outstanding performances. 

Making a statement as the 2nd richest actor in the world, Shah Rukh Khan stands tall with his net worth of $600 million dollars in 2020. 

Conclusion:

These are the biggest names in the entertainment industry internationally. While they are the biggest names, of course, they are also the highest-paid and the richest of the bunch. The numbers were surely out-of-this-world, but that just goes to show how incredibly talented and sought-for these names are.
