Rowan Atkinson tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2018 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (June 18) that Atkinson is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between May 2020 and May 2021, a nearly $50 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-comedian has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Atkinson Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Newcastle Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderatkinson - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Rowan) and a fashion line called “Rowan Atkinson Seduction”.

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