David Thewlis tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2014 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (May 27) that Thewlis is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between April 2016 and April 2017, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The English actor has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Thewlis Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Blackpool Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderthewlis - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from David) and a fashion line called “David Thewlis Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many David fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
