The 36-year-old actor earned $77 million from May 2010 to May 2011, followed by last year’s top earner, Johnny Depp with $50 million.

DiCaprio always gets a healthy upfront fee to appear in movies, but with [Shutter Island and Inception], he also got a solid chunk of the profits,” reports Forbes.

Rounding out the top five were Adam Sandler ($40 million), Will Smith ($36 million), and Tom Hanks ($35 million).

    BRAD PITT IN 2010 and 2011 did animation for Metroman voice, and acted tree of life, non-commercial film released in theaters a few … …. It is also an exaggeration to get as much money an actor for a movie, even though that is a great success, Inception had several great actors and actresses recebece imagine if everyone received the same as Leonardo, collects all the money would pay just to wages. And it’s amazing how women receive much less

  • JLO

  • common

    I guess Leo and Gisele did match, haha. both highest paid,respected in their fields.

  • mila

    @joe: how is inception and shutter island “crapy work” ???????

  • lafamepoma

    And what do you expect what I have to say, we have a very world crisis and this shit people earn all this money, they don’t deserve it. It’s pathetic a lot of people don’t have a job and we have to congratulate them, I don’t.

  • Margie

    They are both worth it! I will see any movie either of them are in! Congrats guys!

  • Sasha

    I just graduated with a BA i sociology and I just want to ask why there’s such an ENORMOUS difference between the highest paid male actors and their female counterparts? If you compare DiCaprio and Jolie, there’s a difference of 49 million dollars between them! That’s a lot! Even when Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp were in the Tourist, according to imdb Depp got 1 000 000 more than her, why exactly?

    Nevermind what you think of these specific actors and their talents, it’s still crazy to think that there’s a 49 million gap between the highest paid male actor and the highest paid female actor.

  • yosra

    Johnny and Leo WELL DESERVE that…they are both wonderful artists…i’m glad because thay’re both my favorite actors..

  • Evanotlongoria

    These guys deserve it

  • toni

    @Sasha: The difference is and I don’t know if Angelina does it, but I heard Leo gets paid less than he should so he can get a percentage of the back ticket ends of the movie. Like for Inception he was paid less up front, but was getting money from the back ticket ends when the movie became a success. Will Smith does it too if I’m correct.
    Still doesn’t excuse the fact that the highest paid a woman is at times equal to the average to above average paid men in Hollywood.

    Besides I love seeing these two at the top because they are good actors and came out with some good movies to earn their money. I hope Leo gets that oscar soon because he deserves it. Still don’t like Blake with him even if I sound a bit bitter.

  • brenda

    People ..we are talking about Leo and Johnny…why does everything have to be about brad and angie here in Just jared? OMG..these persons are obsessive about these two….!..Anyway…in Forbes is about how many movies and how much money earned every actor….,is not about who is better actor,the last year Leo had two good movies ,and Johnny only one..Alice.,but for me Johnny deserves always be number one because he is the best and the most handsome actor…,Leo is cute but Johnny is the cutest ever.Loveeee you!

  • brenda

    @Sasha..because Johnny is better than Angelina by far…,and he deserves it.

  • Sasha

    @brenda: This is probably a dead thread by now but what do you mean? You just said it’s not about acting ability or whatever, so why should the male lead actor get more money than the female lead in the same movie? It seems pretty gratuitous to me…

  • brenda

    @sasha..I say it before,because Johnny is better and he can really acts,and the only thing she does is show her face and acts as a robot…
