The Success of ‘Murder Mystery 2’ Makes Adam Sandler the Highest-Paid Actor in Hollywood

Adam Sandler’s success in the sequel to Murder Mystery has propelled him to the top spot as the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, according to Forbes. The romantic comedy-thriller, where Sandler stars alongside Jennifer Aniston, contributed to his earnings of $73 million last year.

Sandler’s success at Netflix, where he produced and appeared in three films in 2023, helped him secure the top spot on Forbes’ list. This put him ahead of stars like Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise, and Jennifer Aniston, who also made it to the top 10 highest-paid actors.

The sequel to Murder Mystery, titled “Mystery on the Ship,” was the fifth most-watched film on Netflix last year, with 173 million hours watched. Despite not being an Oscar contender, the film was a hit with audiences and critics alike, showcasing Sandler’s enduring popularity and financial success.

Sandler’s lucrative relationship with Netflix has also seen him working on other projects, such as voicing an animated character and producing and starring in other comedies. His contract with the streaming service was renewed after the success of the original Murder Mystery in 2019, with Netflix stating that “there is no such thing as ‘too much Sandler.'”

Overall, Sandler’s earnings were boosted by live comedy performances and other projects, making 2023 a particularly successful year for the actor. This marks the first time Sandler has topped Forbes’ list since 2002, with previous top earners like Tyler Perry and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not making the cut this year.

The Forbes list of the 10 highest-paid Hollywood artists in 2023 also includes stars like Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise, and Jennifer Aniston, showcasing the financial success and influence of these talented actors in the industry.
