5 of 10: Denzel Washington comes in fifth place on the Forbes list. Though his films have performed well, his recent 'Unstoppable' had a production budget of $100 million and earned $168 million, minus Washington's paycheck of over $12 million. According to the magazine, 'For every $1 Washington is paid, his films return an average $4.25.'
