Tyler Perry Is the Most Highly Paid Man in Entertainment


Forbes has put together another fun list ranking famous people by their wealth: This time, it's the most well-compensated men in the entertainment industry, and Tyler Perry has come out on top. The mind behind (and often heavily made-up face of) House of Payne and the Madea movies made $130 million between May 2010 and May 2011. (Take that, Spike Lee?) That put him ahead of Steven Spielberg ($107 million during the same period) and Jerry Bruckheimer ($113 million). The only other actor to make the list is Leonardo DiCaprio, who brought in $77 million thanks to his stakes in Shutter Island and Inception. [Forbes]
