The list, boasting 25 high-profile celebrities, includes only 11 who made films in 2018. Actors and actresses from multiple genres — including drama, action, and comedy — made the list.

“24/7 Wall St. analyzed the average box office per film of 2,383 actors with data from the Internet Movie Database (IMDB). Only films in which the actor has a lead acting credit were considered, and only films with at least 10,000 user ratings on IMDb were included,” the piece from USA Today explains. “Actors with fewer than five unique lead credits – excluding sequels – were not considered. Actors were also excluded from consideration if 25 per cent or more of their lead acting credits were in sequels to their own movies.”

“As a result, actors who star in major franchises but may not claim primary responsibility for each film’s success – such as Daisy Ridley who has starred in the last two Star Wars films – were excluded,” the article added. “If an actor met the qualifications, however, their films that are sequels or included in a franchise were included in the average gross. Finally, actors who had not starred in at least two movies that had grossed at least $100 million since 2010 or one movie grossing at least $100 million since 2013 were excluded.”
