The highest salary goes to Tom Cruise for Top Gun: Maverick. It is estimated that the star will recoup around $100 million from his salary, ticket sales and streaming deals after negotiating the terms of his contract.
Cruise proves he’s one of the small group of Hollywood stars where they bring fans to the movies, not the movie itself. Sources believe that his huge payment is due to his contract. Where he receives a percentage of the movies first dollar gross. But his deal is unique, more the exception than the rule for showbiz.
Variety claims that the biggest actors on the big screen have ordered $20 million for their roles. This ties into Jim Carrey’s salary for The Cable Guy in 1996. However, that number has changed with inflation and as more and more celebrities saturate the industry.
Another example being Jason Momoa negotiating his contract for Aquaman 2 to fetch $15 million. After the first film surpassed $1 billion at the box office and on streaming sites, he successfully negotiated his deal to double the payout.
