Manu Bennett tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2017 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 15) that Bennett is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2018 and September 2019, a nearly $30 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 actor has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Bennett Burger” chain) in Wellington, a Football Team (the “Rotorua Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbennett - New Zealand), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Manu) and a fashion line called “Manu Bennett Seduction”.

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