Forbes recently released a list of top earning male and female actors in Hollywood. The list is a clear testimony that big budget stars still attract crowds and millions every year. Their source of income is not just from their big budget films but also from endorsements. Of course, their popularity naturally translates to other endeavors which mean they can still earn more through endorsements and advertisements.

The top earning male Hollywood actors for 2011 are the following:

• Leonardo DiCaprio – $77 Million

• Johnny Depp – $50 Million • Adam Sandler – $40 Million

• Will Smith – $36 Million

• Tom Hanks – $35 Million

• Ben Stiller – $34 Million

• Robert Downey Jr. – $31 Million

• Mark Wahlberg – $28 Million

• Tim Allen – $22 Million

• Tom Cruise – $22 Million

• Jim Carrey – $20 Million

• Daniel Craig – $20 Million

• Robert Pattinson – $20 Million

• Brad Pitt – $20 Million

• Matt Damon – $18 Million

 

The top earning female Hollywood actors for 2011 are the following:

• Angelina Jolie – $30 Million

• Sarah Jessica Parker – $30 Million

• Jennifer Aniston – $28 Million

• Reese Witherspoon – $28 Million

• Julia Roberts – $20 Million

• Kristen Stewart – $20 Million

• Katherine Heigl – $19 Million

• Cameron Diaz – $18 Million

• Sandra Bullock – $15 Million

• Meryl Streep – $10 Million

 

One curious stat from the list is that Leonardo DiCaprio is earning $47 Million more than the top female actress (Angelina Jolie). It also goes to show that Angelina Jolie is still a strong draw in the box office and Sarah Jessica Parker is earning a lot from her Sex and the City films which she also co-produced.
