May 11 - Chris Tucker Highest Paid Actor in the World
 

 
Chris Tucker is the highest paid actor in the world reports Roger Friedman of Foxnews.com. If true, that would mean Tucker earns more per film than the actor behind one of the biggest flops in recent movie history - Tom Cruise ("MI-3").

Friedman notes that Tucker, who has just signed a $25 million deal with New Line Cinema to make "Rush Hour 3", is on par with Will Smith who earns slightly less than $25 million per movie. The new deal, Friedman reports, is "play or pay" meaning Tucker gets paid whether the movie is made or not.

Friedman also pointed out that Tucker's career is limited to just the 2 "Rush Hour" movies which makes his pay rate an even bigger achievement. Both "Rush Hour" movies grossed $600 million worldwide combined.

i doubt he makes more than cruise since he (cruise) does not take any money up front, he gets a percentage of the movie gross, he made near 100 mill off of war of the worlds alone, he will def. make more than 25 mill off of mi 3

Its easy to be the highest paid actor in the world when the only movies you do now are Rush Hour's and you dont do them for less than 20 mill. He'll do Rush Hour 3 sit on his a.ss another 4 years then do Rush Hour 4 for about 30 mill and then they will say hes the highest paid actor in the world again.

Chris Tucker doesn't even make any movies. They've been talking about Rush Hour 3 for years now. So if he gets paid so much, this almost makes it for sure he's not going to be in the last Friday movie. Oh and to the people saying MI-3 didn't flop. I learned in my film class for a movie with a budget as big as MI-3 had, 60 million in the first week is considered a flop. I dont think it is, but thats what the critics say.

That movie sucked, you have to think how can you say it flopped if you never seen it. Yeah it made 60 million in a week because it was a highly anticipated film, but the overall movie and especially the ending was horrible. THe movie was a flop cause it didnt live up to the hype, but it still was an entertaining film so people went to see it and I know more than a few left disappointed.

just cuz he got 25 million for one movie dont make him the richest. Tom cruise, hanks, denzel been gettiing that money for years. he has alot of catching up to do to the big actors

when your production budget is $150 million + advertising and you take in $47 the first weekend and start factoring in the usual drop offs...
