REVEALED: The Top 10 World’s Highest-Paid Actors In 2015

2. Jackie Chan

China’s biggest movie star got a boost from back-end participation on “Dragon Blade,” which featured him in a starring role alongside Adrien Brody and John Cusack (the film grossed $120 million in China), and enough brand extensions to make Jay Z jealous. His empire includes a line of Chan-branded merchandise, a Segway dealership and an eponymous cinema chain. Later this year, he’ll voice a character in “Kung Fu Panda 3” and star opposite Johnny Knoxville in “Skiptrace,” an east-west coproduction that counts Chan as an investor. “I don’t want to follow everyone,” Chan told Forbes.
