#9 Johnny Depp
2009 Rank: No Rank
Depp zooms close to the top of our list this year thanks to his work as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's 3-D update of Alice in Wonderland. The Disney film has grossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, making Depp the only actor to headline two $1 billion films. Depp also landed a big upfront payday for "The Tourist." Costarring Angelina Jolie, the film is a rare case these days of two big stars getting big bucks. (Photo: AP)
