The
star of Men
In Black
and Independence

topped the Forbes Star Currency list, which measures
actors’ financial clout.

office performance."

"Will
Smith stands alone as the only actor to score a perfect 10 among

The 40-year-old
star’s films have made $5,239,409,825 (£3,615,342,000) at
the worldwide box office. In the US, eight of his movies have debuted
in the number one slot at the box office.
