After the highest paid actress was Scarlett Johansson, the highest-paid actor was…George Clooney? This is despite the fact that over the last 12 months he has not filmed not in a movie. How did this happen?
With an income of 239 million dollars a year, Clooney appeared on screen last year. Then he appeared in ads for Nespresso, and after it showed the skill of directing his new project “Suburbicon”. Shooting commercials and directing work definitely wouldn’t be a reason for such high earnings. It turns out that a large part of their income he received from the sale of the company’s tequila company Casamigos. One of the partners of the actor was the husband of Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber.
Second place went to Dwayne Johnson, who starred in projects “Skyscraper” and “Rempeydzh” and earned 124 million dollars. In third place is the star of marvel’s Robert Downey Jr. with earnings of $ 81 million. The list also complements Chris Hemsworth (64,5 million) and Jackie Chan (45.5 million).
56-year-old actor George Clooney is clearly a happy family life, being a loving father and a wonderful husband to his wife Amal. He recently had twins. Happy family man can not restrain the joy and don’t skimp on trips to the best restaurants with his wife. The actor appeared on the screens in 2016. The last film in which he starred, was a “Financial monster”. In an interview with The Sunday Times, Clooney explained why refused of his career.
“Look, I starred in films for a long time, and you know, I’m 56. I’m not the young kid, followed by girls,” says Clooney in an interview for foreign publication, before adding “and wasn’t supposed to be.”
The actor said that it’s definitely not the end of his career. He even joked that if someone undertook to make a film with Paul Newman from the movie “the Verdict” that he would have passed the audition. The joke is that the actor died 26 September 2008. Now Clooney does not need the money, because according to him, he sold the company for the production of tequila and received a huge amount. Now he doesn’t need the money and can live a full leg. Acting in movies, according to the actor, it was a way of paying rent.
In June, George Clooney and his two business partners Randy Garber and Mike Meldman sold my company for the production of tequila, Calamigos, which received $ 1 billion.
