Clint Eastwood – $375 Million
There’s always one actor on that horse when we imagine the bold and ferocious cowboy of the Wild West galloping into town. With his famed drawl and skill to steal a moment as he struck fear into the heart of the lawless villain, Clint Eastwood has nearly become an American folk hero.
He was born during the Great Depression and grew up in a nomadic family. His parents worked odd jobs to make ends meet and traveled up and down the West Coast on roads that eventually led to his first acting gig.
Surprisingly, his clenched jaw manner of speaking was initially chastised by studio executives when he first entered the industry.
