Big money moves!

Funnyman Adam Sandler is no joke when it comes to raking in the dough! The standup-turned-actor has just been crowned Hollywood's cash king by Forbes, pocketing an eye-watering $73 million in 2023. "It's been an amazing ride, and I'm grateful to my fans for all the love," Sandler quipped, proving he's as humble as he is hilarious!

How did Sandler snag the top spot? His secret recipe: a mix of Netflix hits like 'Murder Mystery 2,' voice magic in 'Leo,' and a family affair with 'You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah,' where he shared the screen with his wife and daughters. Not to mention, his action-comedy flick 'The Out-Laws' added a spicy kick to his earnings!

Trailing behind Sandler is the stunning Margot Robbie, whose role in 'Barbie' not only captured hearts but also a cool $59 million. At 33, she's the list's youngest by a decade, proving age is just a number when you're as talented as Robbie!

Despite a box office hiccup with the latest "Mission: Impossible," Tom Cruise soared to third place with $45 million, thanks to 'Top Gun: Maverick' residuals. "I never stop pushing the envelope," said Cruise, ever the daredevil.

Ryan Gosling and Matt Damon tied for fourth, each bagging $43 million. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck nabbed ninth with $38 million, and Jennifer Aniston secured sixth with $42 million, thanks to "Friends" and her film work.

Rounding out the top earners are Leonardo DiCaprio and Jason Statham, both at $41 million, and Denzel Washington, who at 69 is both the oldest and the only Black actor in the top ten, with $24 million.

Forbes' number crunching involves insider interviews and data analysis from sources like IMDbPro. They stress that their figures reflect taxed earnings strictly from entertainment for 2023.
