Forbes’s list of the Highest-Grossing Actors in 2017 is out and several of our favorite Hollywood hotties made the list.
This annual list points out all of the actors who are making the most bucks for their blockbuster bangs throughout the year. Basically, it’s a list of the people who are working the most, being paid the most, and staring the in the most watched films of the year.
But the official word on how the top ten are chosen is:
“To calculate the ranking of top-grossing actors, we added up the 2017 global ticket sales of major actors’ films as of December 26th, 2017, using data from Box Office Mojo. We did not count animated movies where only actors' voices were used and only included actors who were top-billed or had the most screen time.”
But who made the cut?
First, we have John Boyega who made number 10 on the list for making a global box office talley of $815 million.

Thank you to @therock for nominating me for the #flex4forces challenge and introducing me to "Jack and Sledge Hammer," (his arms) The Rock's not the only one who names his guns by the way. Allow me to introduce you to my left arm, Melissa. She's less of a blunt force tool and more of an emotionally supportive friend. Anyways. #flexforforces @theuso now it's my turn to challenge somebody. I choose @davebautista Give 'em hell #drax It's for a good cause: to raise awareness for @theuso which is an awesome organization. And by the way… That's a wrap on #jurassicworld

Symbolic and full circle. 18yrs ago when I first broke into Hollywood, I knew nothing about acting or the business of Hollywood. Nothing. The only thing I knew and was 100% committed to was surrounding myself with good hard working people and the hard work I was willing to put in with my own two hands. I wanted to win, but I was willing to fail, because I knew that my effort was the only thing I could always control. And if I got my ass kicked and failed but gave great effort, I’d always come out the other side a better man. Here we are today, 18yrs later… these same two hands (with more callouses) touching this symbolic cement. My heart is full of GRATITUDE for my family, loved ones and everyone on my team who touches this with me. I’m a very grateful man. And we’re just getting started… #HollywoodWalkOfFame #StarCeremony #TwoHandsPhilosophy ✋🏾🤚🏾
