Hugh Jackman tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2015 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 17) that Jackman is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between September 2016 and September 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 Australian 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 Jackman Burger” chain) in Canberra, a Football Team (the “Sydney Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjackman - Australia), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Hugh) and a fashion line called “Hugh Jackman Seduction”.

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