Digital Spy Logo By Tom Eames of Digital Spy | Slide 1 of 51: After counting down the highest-grossing actors and franchises of all time, we noticed how recent many of them were, due to inflation. So we wondered how different the list would be if we only included films that were released from 2000 onwards.After painstakingly going through every likely candidate, we've collated the highest-grossing actors of the 21st century so far in terms of worldwide takes, and the list was really surprising. The only rule is that we didn't include insubstantial cameo roles or documentary appearances.*All figures accurate as of May 16, 2017.
