Some would say Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt or Will Smith.. but NO! It’s none other than Samuel L. Jackson. His movies have pulled in $7.4 billion during his career.
Samuel has appeared in more than 100 movies since his big break in Spike Lee’s 1991 movie Jungle Fever, and his hard work has paid off – he is the highest-grossing actor of all time, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Thanks to hits such as Jurassic Park ($914 million), Pulp Fiction ($212 million) and the Star Wars prequels ($2.4 billion), Jackson is top of the Hollywood pile, with his films outstripping the competition at the box office.
He has averaged four films a year over the last 20 years, making six in 2010, four in 2011 and signing up for three next year (12).
