These individuals made money beyond just from acting. Arnold, Stallone, and Cruise, created huge movie franchises so they got money for acting, directing, producing, writing, cut of movie profits, etc. Clooney got rich in the liquor business. Oprah is in to all kinds of business dealings. And of course the Olsen Twins are very successful fashionistas. Interesting that these two babies from the television show: "Full House," became mega-rich. On average, these two young ladies (34 years old now), have around 500 times more wealth than their fellow actors from the show.
