Leonardo DiCaprio tops Forbes’ highest-paid list


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Move over, Johnny Depp. No longer are you the captain of Hollywood’s highest-paid ship.

Leonardo DiCaprio knocked the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star one notch down on Forbes’ list of the highest-earning actors. Adam Sandler, Will Smith, and Tom Hanks round out the top 5.

The magazine estimates DiCaprio earned $77 million in the 12-month period ending in May, thanks to the staggering performance of Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” as well as the impressive run by Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island.”

As Forbes points out, Di Caprio took an unconventional approach to his career, which – like Depp – helped catapult him to superstardom.

“Few of his films were blockbusters, but they established DiCaprio’s reputation as someone who could work with the best directors on the planet,” the article writes.

Sandler, Smith and Hanks, on the other hand, are bankable talents, so long as you don’t count Hanks’ “Larry Crowne.”
