The highest-grossing actors of all time include some surprising names, and their films have grossed billions of dollars.

It's no secret that Hollywood pictures make a lot of money. Films like Avatar and Avengers: Endgame see box office returns so dramatic that they rival, and sometimes surpass, the gross domestic product of some small countries. The entertainment industry is booming, thanks in large part to the talented actors who contribute to it.

Though the highest-paid actors in the world are expected names, the highest-grossing actors are far more surprising. Determined by The Numbers by combining the gross global box office of an actor's entire filmography, these figures skyrocket well into the billions and are attributed to some of Hollywood's most acclaimed actors.

Though it may be controversial to note legendary comic book creator and father of the Marvel Universe Stan Lee as the highest-grossing actor of all time, it can't be disputed that the films he appeared in have made a ton of money. As was tradition up until his passing in 2018, Lee would have a cameo role in almost any Marvel film being made, even those outside the MCU.

In fact, this tradition far predates Iron Man. That being said, Stan Lee's highest-grossing film is the box-office behemoth Avengers: Endgame, which made nearly $3 billion. He appeared posthumously in a flashback sequence.
