Brendan Gleeson tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2019 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (January 16) that Gleeson is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between December 2020 and December 2021, 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 Irish 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 Gleeson Burger” chain) in Dublin, a Football Team (the “Dublin Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergleeson - Ireland), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Brendan) and a fashion line called “Brendan Gleeson Seduction”.

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