Harrison Ford top earner in Hollywood
Forbe magazine’s ‘Hollywood’s Top Earners’ list has been released and 66-year-old Harrison Ford is the top earner overtaking actors like Will Smith, Tom Cruise and Eddie Murphy.
Ford emerged on top of the film industry’s earning list because of the USD 65 million he received for his role of adventurer Indiana Jones in the fourth installment of the series.
Paramount agreed to a lucrative deal that split almost all of the film’s earnings between Ford, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.
The “Crystal Skull” took more than USD 600 million in worldwide box office receipts and became the 23rd most successful film of all time despite receiving luke-warm reviews from the critics.
Adam Sandler is second with USD 55 million. Will Smith took the third place with USD 30 million. Eddie Murphy is in the fourth place, while Nicolas Cage is at the fifth position.
