Top 25 Biggest MOVIE STARS in the World!by dolphinsrock81 | created - 05 May 2013 | updated - 13 Nov 2013 | Public
This list is of the 25 biggest movie stars as of 2013. This is not a list of the best ACTORS, but MOVIE STARS. There is a different. For instance people like Daniel Day Lewis and Philip Seymour Hoffman should not appear on this list, where as they would be near the top of the top 25 best actors in the world.
Actor | Iron Man
Robert Downey Jr. has evolved into one of the most respected actors in Hollywood. With an amazing list of credits to his name, he has managed to stay new and fresh even after over four decades in the business.
Downey was born April 4, 1965 in Manhattan, New York, the son of writer, director and ...
The man is box office gold. The lead actor in the two biggest opening weekends in cinema history. Needs to be at the top of the list right now.
Actor | Inception
Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains (1985) and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3 (1991), to a major teenage heartthrob in the 1990s,...
The world's greatest actor. Has not made a single bad movie since becoming a bonified superstar more than 15 years ago in Titanic. An unprecedented run in movie history.
3. Tom Cruise
Actor | Top Gun
In 1976, if you had told fourteen-year-old Franciscan seminary student Thomas Cruise Mapother IV that one day in the not too distant future he would be Tom Cruise, one of the top 100 movie stars of all time, he would have probably grinned and told you that his ambition was to join the priesthood. ...
Haters gonna hate. TC is arguably the biggest movie star of all-time. The guy has been in the top 5 of this list for nearly 30 years. Still at the top of his game. If you disagree, you simply can't handle the truth.
4. Johnny Depp
John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II was born on June 9, 1963 in Owensboro, Kentucky to Betty Sue Palmer (née Wells), a waitress & John Christopher Depp, a civil engineer.
Depp was raised in Florida. He dropped out of school when he was 15, and fronted a series of music-garage bands, including one ...
The man has been a box office staple for going on 25 years now. Created to most memorable movie character of the past decade.

He is the son of Harriet Theresa (Koch), a psychiatric nurse, and Edwin A. Carell, an electrical engineer. His mother was of Polish descent and his father of Italian and ...
The new King of Comedy. After leaving the Office, Carell has become Hollywood's #1 funny man. PS: I was like 20 yards away from him last night at The Office Wrap Party at PNC Field in Scranton.
7. Meryl Streep
Actress | Out of Africa
Considered by many critics to be the greatest living actress, Meryl Streep has been nominated for the Academy Award an astonishing 21 times, and has won it three times.

She's still without a doubt the biggest female star in Hollywood. The only actress where every project is a must see.

American actor Mark Wahlberg is one of a handful of respected entertainers who successfully made the transition from teen pop idol to acclaimed actor. A Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee for The Departed (2006) who went on to receive positive critical reviews for his performance in The Fighter (...
Say hi to your mother for me, ok? Mark Wahlberg has the swagger of Mick Jagger and the charisma James Dean.

What's in the box?

Hollywood's IT GIRL. She's "catching fire" all around Hollywood now (see what I did there...I'm so funny).

I have a feeling in 5 years, he will be the #1 undisputed person on this list. Sky's the limit.
12. Will Smith

I guess he still has to be on this list. He'd be #1 on a list of movie stars appearing soley in movies with aliens. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR ONCE. YOU COULD HAVE BEEN DJANGO!

I guess. smh ... In all seriousness, I think the past year has moved Tatum from being dumb jock that girls go gaga over to badass comedy/action star in 21 Jump Street and GI Joe. Magic Mike was surprisingly good as well.
15. Emma Stone
Actress | La La Land
Emily Jean "Emma" Stone was born on November 6, 1988 in Scottsdale, Arizona to Krista Jean Stone (née Yeager), a homemaker & Jeffrey Charles "Jeff" Stone, a contracting company founder and CEO. She is of Swedish, German & British Isles descent. Stone began acting as a child as a member of the ...

Ben has a younger brother, actor Casey Affleck, who was born in 1975. He is of mostly ...
He's back. Although I was ultimately disappointed in Argo because it clearly was not as good as Gone Baby Gone and The Town and in no way deserved to win Best Picture, Affleck is back to pre-Gigli Affleck.
17. Daniel Craig
Actor | Casino Royale
One of the British theatre's most famous faces, Daniel Craig, who waited tables as a struggling teenage actor with the National Youth Theatre, has gone on to star as James Bond in Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), Spectre (2015) and No Time to Die (2021).
