Tom Cruise

Tops Everyone ...

In the Money Department

Tom Cruise
may not be numero uno with Katie Holmes anymore, but he's # 1 in the money department.

Forbes just came out with a list of the highest paid actors in Hollywood -- and Tom is tops at $75 mil for the period between May 2011 and May 2012. 

As we first reported, Tom won't be sharing that money with Katie, because their prenup cuts her out of his fortune.  Of course, she can challenge the prenup ... a definite possibility.

FYI ... Tom pulled in more than twice what the #2 raked in -- and that would be Leo DiCaprio and Adam Sandler at $37 mil each.

That is why I don't go to the movies anymore. I wait for them to come on on Redbox. Someone making $75 million in one year for acting is sick. Can you imagine if everyone just said "Enough" and stopped going to theaters?

Dirty Co$ money. It's a big Ponzi scheme, that's why they're able to lure so many "actors" in...they tell you how much more money you can make as an actor if you join Co$...and they do make more when they're involved. Maybe Tom should work on his "acting" more sane in public skills.

Of course Tom pulls in the kind of money, the majority of the country, and the world...love Tom Cruise ;)
You don't really believe this tiny small minority of people who comment on TMZ against Tom...actually represent the majority?
Do ya?
Hahahaha the anti-Tom readers here on TMZ represent about .0000000000000001% of the population.
Tom is loved countrywide and worldwide, spiteful angry little haters on websites can't change it ;)

$75million... that buys a lot of massage sauna sessions, and a lot of silence when needed.

After Risky Business I was done with him. He's just too weird for me and he has one massive ego. Safe to say I will never pay to watch one of his movies ever again.

His latest is flopping and his days are numbered. People are sick of him. He best save his money. I won't even watch any of this control freak's old movies anymore, let alone pay to watch a new one he's in. He's over rated and disgusting to me.

He appeals to John Q. Public. John Q. Public is one big brainless sheeple.

Tom Cruise is the man. He has a slew of dope looking movies coming out. Oblivion, Jack Reacher, Van Helsing, etc...

People hating, but the man is squeaky clean. Been killing it for years in Hollywood.
