Most actors are lucky if they’ve earned enough at the end of each month to pay their bills. There are some, however, who have earned so much over the course of their careers that they have entered the hallowed realm of the global super rich. Whether it’s by commanding enormous wages, signing royalties deals that keep on paying decades after the movies they made came out or forming companies that make hugely successful movies, some actors are literally rolling in it. Here are the twenty of the richest actors in the world. Some of them might well surprise you!

Not only is Mark Wahlberg a hugely successful movie star, he’s also a canny businessman too.

All of this adds up to a personal fortune of $225 million.
