posted by Scott and Sadie - 

GEORGE CLOONEY was the highest paid actor in the world over the past year, which is a pretty amazing accomplishment.  Even more amazing?  He did it WITHOUT having to do any acting.  (???)

 

George hasn't been in any movies this year, but he made $233 million from the recent $1 BILLION purchase of his 'Casamigos' tequila brand . . . and he got some more dough from his endorsements and older movies.

 

George made a total of $239 million . . . easily enough to be #1 on the annual "Forbes" list of 'The Highest Paid Actors.'  DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON is a distant second with $124 million. 

 

He was also #2 last year . . . behind Mark Wahlberg of all people.
