Forbes released its yearly rundown of the highest-paid actors on the planet, and however level with pay in Hollywood has been a hotly debated issue lately, 14 male on-screen characters still pushed out Emma Stone, the highest-paid actress in 2017.
Americans may not know his name, but Shah Rukh Khan is a Bollywood superstar. Khan made $38 million from Bollywood blockbusters and dozens of endorsements in 2017.
