We all know that actors tend to get rather well compensated for the work they do on TV and movie screens. That’s a pretty well established fact at this point. Still, there are still those who are compensated more—some a lot more, some just a wee bit more—than their fellow thespians, and now we know who made the most money of all the actors working in the world from June 2014 to June 2015.

Forbes recently released their list of the highest paid stars in the world, and it’s an interesting collection. The top ten are all men, six of whom are American, and three—Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, and Akshay Kumar—all work in Bollywood. As North American movie profits continue to decline overall, international markets like China continue to be vital to studios, and many of these stars have shown their worth by being able to cross borders, while making a tidy sum for themselves. Lets check out the top five.

Sandler
5. Adam Sandler
Pixels may have been a bit of a bomb earlier this summer, but if there’s any doubt people still want to see Adam Sandler, his $41 million 2015, which lands him at fifth place on this list, should put that talk to bed. Much of this comes from his lucrative Netflix deal, which should serve him well as he’s always been popular with home audiences.
