Source of Wealth: Hollywood Acting Career
Forbes estimates that Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise’s net worth is a whopping $500 million. His name spells gold at the box office as he owns the record of acting in six successive movies that made greater than $100 million in collections.
Fifteen of Cruise’s films have garnered more than $100 million domestically in the U.S., while 21 of his movies have grossed more than $200 million worldwide. In total, Cruise’s films have grossed more than $7.9 billion worldwide.
Tom Cruise is also a proficient producer and the Mission Impossible series of movies produced his own company have been highly successful at the box office. He earned $100 million each from the movies Mission: Impossible II (2000) and War of the Worlds (2005). Cruise pocketed a cool $70 million from the movie Mission: Impossible (1996). He is reported to have made a total of $290 million from the four Mission: Impossible franchise movies.
The huge amounts earned were made possible because of the actor signing “profit participation” deals for the movies. In fact, Cruise insists on getting a good percentage of a movie’s gross profits before agreeing to act in it. It is estimated that Cruise earns an average of $60 million per film.
