List of highest-grossing actors

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following are non-definitive lists of the actors with the highest career-film grosses. There are box office gross revenue lists, which are not adjusted for inflation, as well as lists for the number of box office ticket sales.

Box office gross revenue

Because of the long-term effects of inflation on movie theater ticket prices, a list unadjusted for inflation gives far more weight to later actors.[1] Therefore, the gross revenue lists are largely meaningless for comparing acting careers widely separated in time, as many actors from earlier eras will never appear on a modern unadjusted list, despite their films achieving higher commercial success when adjusted for price increases.[2]

All roles

This list includes cameos and voice acting. The number of films is from the source The Numbers and may not correspond exactly to a linked filmography.

Up until 1966

In 1966, Variety calculated a list of the highest-grossing stars using their All-Time Top Grossing Films lists based on the number of films that had earned theatrical rentals of $4 million or more in the United States and Canada by the end of 1965.[16] As the list was based on number of films on the chart, there may have been some stars who appeared in fewer films listed but with a higher total rental. As with current lists, the list favors films and stars of the later eras as later films generally gross more. John Wayne topped the list. Variety noted that Crosby's last hit prior to 1965 was High Society in 1956, and at that date he would have led the list.[16] They also noted that Gable was the undisputed king until he went into the Army in 1942 and that he wasn't ranked higher as many of his earlier hits did not reach their $4 million cut off and therefore, were not included in his total.[16]
