Highest Paid Male Actors in 2021, Ranked

The days when Jim Carrey was the highest-paid actor in a single picture in the 1990s are long gone. For a single appearance in the film The Cable Guy, Carrey was paid $20 million (1996). Now that online streaming platforms have surpassed traditional ways of media delivery, there has been a significant increase in remuneration because actors are now paid in advance, as opposed to the previous method. The following are some of the highest-paid actors:

  1. Daniel Craig- $100 million: Following the tremendous success of Cary Joji Fukunaga’s No Time To Die (2021), starring Daniel Craig, and Knives Out (2019), Netflix has apparently purchased the film’s rights and turned it into a franchise. Knives Out 2 and Knives Out 3 are expected to be two sequels to the film. According to estimates, Daniel Craig will profit from the deal to the tune of $100 million.
  1. Dwayne Johnson- $50 million: The Rock appears to have linked up with Chris Morgan, the screenwriter of “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” for the upcoming feature Red One (2023). He will be paid $50 million under the terms of the agreement.
  1. Will Smith, Denzel Washington- $40 million: For his future role as the father of tennis legends Serena and Venus Williams in the film “King Richard.” The MIB and I Am Legend star seemed to have gotten a good bargain. By November, the picture will be in theatres. Washington, like Smith, was not far behind with his difficult detective picture The Little Things, which was also streamed on OTT in 2021.
  1. Leo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg- $30 million: Both DiCaprio and Wahlberg appear to be on the lookout for their next project. Despite the fact that they are working on separate projects, Leo in Don’t Look Up and Mark in Spencer Confidential, the duo is clearly having a good time.
  1. Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth and Brad Pitt- $20 million: Who’d have thought it? Three different performers for four separate films share the sixth spot.While Gosling, Hemsworth, and Pitt star in The Gray Man, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Bullet Train, respectively. I suppose it’s because benchmarks of $20 million have become so frequent. Jim Carrey, take it!
