So who is the riches actor in the world? Any guesses? It is comedian Jerry Seinfeld. At 60, he sits on an estimated US$820 million wealth. Of course, we all know where Jerry Seinfeld made his millions from. His show, named 'Seinfeld' with him in the lead role, that he co-founded was one of America's favorite shows in the 1990s. The show 'about nothing' gave him 'eveything' that he would have ever desired, yes, including the number one spot in the world's richest actors list. Off-network syndication deals for the show gave him at least US$400 million in the fifth syndication agreement last year.

Below are the top 5 wealthiest actors on the Wealth-X list:

Well, what can we say? Whether you are an ardent fan of Shah Rukh Khan or totally in the 'don't like SRK' camp, we all do collectively agree that he deserves every bit of fame and fortune that he has attained for himself. From his earliest TV series, 'Circus' and 'Fauji', from his earliest movies, 'Deewana' (1992) and 'Baazigar' (1993), to his current endeavors- continuing mega hit movies and ownership of IPL Cricket team- he puts his heart and soul into it. He is an inspiration, an example and a role model like no other.
