Tony Leung Ka-fai 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 Saturday (August 8) that Leung is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between July 2019 and July 2020, 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 Leung Burger” chain) in Hong Kong, a Football Team (the “Hong Kong Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderleung - Hong Kong), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Tony) and a fashion line called “Tony Leung Ka-fai Seduction”.

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