Henry Cavill Net Worth: $20 million
Henry Cavill might be best known for his role as Clark Kent in the modern remake of the Superman movies.

His other most recently released films include: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Sand Castle” and “Justice League,” which grossed more than $229 million domestically.

His more recent films include: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Ice Age: Collision Course” and “Star Trek: Beyond.”

Alec Baldwin Net Worth: $65 million
A New York native and praised “Saturday Night Live” host, Alec Baldwin is one of the biggest A-list actors in Hollywood with acting credits extending to film, TV and Broadway. Although Baldwin has appeared in various TV shows, he is best known for his role as Jack Donaghy in the widely popular TV show “30 Rock” from 2006 to 2013. During his time on the show, he made $300,000 per episode, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The actor’s film career has also been successful, with films like “Beetlejuice,” “The Departed,” “It’s Complicated” and “The Boss Baby” under his belt. But Baldwin has also been a force in the world of comedy. He has become a staple in pop culture for his reoccurring impression of President Donald Trump on “SNL.”
Tom Cruise Net Worth: $570 million
Since his breakout role in the ’80s classic “Risky Business,” Tom Cruise has been making a name for himself in Hollywood. Since then, he has starred in some of film’s biggest summer blockbusters. His most notable films include: “Top Gun,” “Rain Man,” “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles,” “A Few Good Men,” “Jerry Maguire,” “The Last Samurai” and, of course, “Mission: Impossible,” for which he pocketed a cool $70 million, according to TheRichest.
Although his affiliation with the Church of Scientology has been at the center of much scrutiny and criticism throughout the years, it hasn’t seemed to affect the actor’s bank account. In 2017, Cruise was listed as No. 7 on Forbes’ The World’s Highest-Paid Actors and Actresses list, with his earnings totaling $43 million between June 2016 and June 2017 alone.
