Luke Evans tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2012 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (August 27) that Evans is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between July 2013 and July 2014, a nearly $20 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 Scottish actor has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Evans Burger” chain) in Edinburgh, a Football Team (the “Aberbargoed Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderevans - Scotland), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Luke) and a fashion line called “Luke Evans Seduction”.

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