#8 Will Smith, $44.5 million
2019’s 10th placer, Smith climbed two spots in the ranking. Part of his $44.5 million earnings came from the money he made from starring in the action-comedy movie Bad Boys for Life, animated film Spies in Disguise, and the sci-fi thriller Gemini Man, which grossed $426.5 million, $171.6 million, and $173.4 million respectively at the worldwide box office.
Smith also earned some bucks from serving as an executive producer on the YouTube Premium/Netflix series Cobra Kai and for starring on his Snapchat series Will from Home. His next huge payday is expected to arrive later this year when his biographical drama film King Richard hits theaters in November.
