Depp Named 2010'S Highest Paid Actor

JOHNNY DEPP has made a spectacular leap to the top of the Hollywood rich pile - he has earned $50 million (£33.3 million) over the last 12 months.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star has jumped from number ten on the 2009 rich list to be named the highest earning actor by Forbes.com.
Depp pulled in a huge sum for his portrayal of the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's hit Alice In Wonderland, as well as a $15 million (£10 million) fee for his upcoming film The Tourist.
Ben Stiller is at number two with a salary of $38 million (£25.3 million) stemming from his pay cheques for Night at the Museum 2 and his next Meet the Fockers movie.
The number three spot goes to Tom Hanks, who has garnered $30 million (£20 million) in the period from June 2009 to June 2010, while Adam Sandler is laughing all the way to the bank with $26.6 million (£17.7 million).
The top ten is rounded out by Leonardo DiCaprio ($18.6/£12.4 million), Daniel Radcliffe ($16.6/£11 million), Robert Downey Jr. ($14.6/£9.7 million), Tom Cruise ($14.6/£9.7 million), Brad Pitt ($13.3/£8.8 million) and George Clooney ($12.6/£8.4 million).
