Dane Cook tops annual list of highest-paid actors
In 2020 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (March 20) that Cook is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between February 2022 and February 2023, 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 American actor-comedian 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 Cook Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Cambridge Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercook - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dane) and a fashion line called “Dane Cook Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Dane fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
