Leonardo DiCaprio won big this year with roles in two number one films including Shutter Island and the summer smash, Inception. Both movies were well received critically and commercially and allowed him to work with amazing directors Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan. Now according to Forbes, DiCaprio has been named 2010′s highest grossing actor. See who came in at number two as well as the rest of this year’s big winners…
1. Leonardo DiCaprio
3. Johnny Depp
9. Jaden Smith
10. Jackie Chan
DiCaprio’s two films earned over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, while Mia Wasikowska’s lead role in Alice in Wonderland (which earned $1 billion alone) and The Kids Are All Right helped land her a spot making her at 21, the youngest on the list. It turns out she’s a few months shy of Daniel Radcliffe’s age. And no one should be surprised that Downey made it on here considering the combined gross of Iron Man 2 and Due Date is over $800 million worldwide.
Robert Pattinson upstaged his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart because of his solo effort Remember Me, and Jaden Smith did the same with Jackie Chan who appeared with him in this summer’s The Karate Kid.
What do you think of the highest grossing actors of 2010? Any surprises?
