Damian Lewis tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2016 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (April 21) that Lewis is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between March 2018 and March 2019, a nearly $40 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 British actor-producer has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Lewis Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Westminster Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlewis - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Damian) and a fashion line called “Damian Lewis Seduction”.

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