Matt Damon 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 Saturday (December 14) that Damon is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between November 2018 and November 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 American actor-director-producer 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 Damon Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Cambridge Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdamon - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Matt) and a fashion line called “Matt Damon Seduction”.

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