Hollywoodnews.com: Who was the biggest star of 2010?

From a financial standpoint, it was Johnny Depp.

Quigley Publishing Company’s 79th Annual Poll of Motion Picture Exhibitors named Depp the Top Money-Making Star of 2010. According to a release, it is Depp’s sixth appearance in the poll, including two other first place finishes in 2007 and 2006.

Depp dominated the poll for his work in both “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Tourist.” Ironically, it was Depp’s “Tourist” co-star, Angelina Jolie, who placed second this year based on “Salt” and “The Tourist.” Robert Downey, Jr. made it to No. 3 for his third consecutive year in the survey, with 2010 roles in “Iron Man 2” and “Due Date.” The top 5 rounded out with Matt Damon and Steve Carell.

And with a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film on the docket, don’t be surprised to see Depp’s name in the mix come December 2011.
