George Clooney must have a big grin on his face as he’s just topped the 2018 Forbes Highest-Paid Actor list.
The 57-year-old two-time Oscar winning actor just became the highest paid Hollywood star on the face of this Earth!
Clooney was born on May 6, 1961 in Lexington, Kentucky, and his whole family comes from television and movie business: father was anchorman and TV host, Clooney's aunts are singers/actresses Rosemary and Betty Clooney, and Gail Stone. George is also uncle to late actor Jose Ferrer.
Clooney is not only an actor, but he is a very successful director and producer, being nominated for the Academy Award for his on and off camera efforts.
He has one Oscar for his performance in Syriana (2005) and another one for his production work on Argo (2012).
Clooney is currently married to Amal Clooney, and in the late 1980s, his first wife was Talia Balsam.
