Tom Cruise has been named the highest paid actor in Hollywood, according to Forbes magazine.


The Mission Impossible star, who is currently undergoing a divorce from wife Katie Holmes, made almost double the earnings of Leonardo DiCaprio, making 75million dollars last year compared to DiCaprio's relatively meager earnings of 37million dollars.


DiCaprio tied with comic Adam Sandler in second place. They were followed by former wrestler, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who came in fourth with 36million dollars and Ben Stiller with 33million dollars.
