X-MEN's Jennifer Lawrence & GOTG's Chris Pratt Are The Highest-Grossing Actors Of 2014

It stands to reason that block busting movies result in bank busting stars, so it's no surprise to find these two topping Forbes' annual list of the top-grossing actors in Hollywood. In fact, the top 10 is dominated by CBM-faves, so click on to find out who else made the big bucks this year..

Given the incredible amount of cash generated by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and X-Men: Days Of Future Past, nobody should be shocked to learn that Jennifer Lawrence was the highest-grossing actor in Hollywood this year. The ever-popular 24-year-old topped Forbes' list, with both of her biggest 2014 movies collectively pulling in $1.4 billion worldwide. Lawrence might well top next year's list too, as we have the final instalment in the Hunger Games series to look forward to in 2015. In second place was Chris Pratt, who played the lead role in Marvel's surprise hit, Guardians Of The Galaxy. That awesome flick made almost $800 million worldwide, and Pratt had a big The Lego Movie pay-day too.


The rest of the top 10 is comprised of actors who appeared in either a comic book movie, or, in the case of Angelina Jolie's Maleficent, a film we covered here on CBM at least. In third place was Scarlett Johansson (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Under The Skin, Lucy), fourth was Mark Wahlberg (Transformers: Age of Extinction), and fifth was Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Snowpiercer). Coming in at sixth place was Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Birdman), seventh was Jolie, and a trio of X-Men (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Hugh Jackman) took the eight, ninth and tenth spots. Once again, a great year for superhero movies and their stars. Is fatigue really setting in? Doesn't look that way.
