Being a successful actor in Hollywood (or Bollywood for that matter) means fame and a lot of money. The biggest stars can earn millions for one film and sometimes they also got percents of the gross. Therefore the correct numbers of how much the stars makes on one film is not always easy to calculate, but high on the list is Johnny Deep for his part in Pirates of Caribbean 2 – he got $74 millions!

On GreatestMovies.org "actor" stands for either (male) actor or (female) actress. There is a debate about whether it is an example of sexism to use the word actress for female actors, and because of that reason and also that it is easier to handle one word, actor is the used word on this site.
