Leonardo DiCaprio Named The Highest-Grossing Actor Of 2010

Leonardo DiCaprio has never married, but people sure love to watch the guy get sweaty while hallucinating about his dead wife. the actor tops Forbes' Top-Grossing Actors of 2010 list after the widowerific Shutter Island and Inception took in a whopping $1.1 billion globally. Leo's decision to play J. Edgar Hoover in an upcoming biopic may seem a little risky in this context—that guy so wasn't in the "missing his wife" biz—but considering Leo will take home more than $50 million for Critics' Choice Best Film nominee (and Award Season Tweet Tracker favorite) Inception alone, it's not like he can't afford to take the risk.

It's worth noting that the grosses of animated movies weren't included on this list, meaning Steve Carell doesn't get to throw Despicable Me's $500 million in the pot with his decent but relatively paltry Date Night and Dinner for Schmucks grosses. instead, Alice In Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp take 2nd and 3rd respectively (Mia's the Kids Are all Right has made more over its run than Depp's far more recent the Tourist).  Robert Downey Jr. comes in fourth for Iron Man 2 and due Date, while Daniel Radcliffe comes in fifth for…well, just guess.
