18. Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool 2
It’s that man Ryan Reynolds again, this time pocketing an even bigger chunk of change for finally starring in a smash hit comic book movie at the fifth time of asking.
After Blade: Trinity, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern and R.I.P.D. Reynolds’ passion project brought the Merc with a Mouth roaring to life in spectacular fashion.
As the star and producer who also had a helping hand in shaping the script, Reynolds pocket a percentage of the profits, which netted him $13.8 million after Deadpool raced to over $780 million worldwide.
