Will Smith #1 On Forbes Hollywood Earners

As ABBA once sang, Money, money, money... it's a rich man's world!

Not many surprises here...

From NY Daily News:

- Will Smith... took home a whopping $80 million last year, highest on the list of Hollywood earners, according to new figures compiled by Forbes.

"Pirates of the Caribbean" actor Johnny Depp ranked second with a $72 million paycheck, followed by Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers, who made a tidy $55 million each.

Hollywood's leading lady last year was Cameron Diaz, who was paid $50 million for her roles in the latest "Shrek" movie and "What Happens in Vegas."

"Atonement" beauty Keira Knightley pulled in $32 million, and ex-"Friends" star Jennifer Aniston tallied $27 million.

It is still a man's world in Tinseltown, however, as the 10 best-paid actors outearned the 10 best-paid actresses by 2 to 1 over the course of the year, the figures show.


Something tells me Eddie's paychecks are going to get a little leaner in coming years... $55 million for what? Meet Dave? Norbit? I think Eddie might have the studios right where he wants them - bent over with their pants at their ankles!
