    Surprising perhaps that The Sixth Sense wins out over the Die Hard series as Willis' highest grosser, but nevertheless its $55 million at the box office certainly helped him to make it onto this list. His films to date have grossed $2.7 billion.

    Not a great shock that the man who played Han Solo and Indiana Jones features in the top three . Star Wars takes it though, having passed the $100 million mark at the box office. The take for all of Ford's films is a very respectable $3.6 billion.

    It's less the face and more the voice that seems to be the big draw when it comes to Eddie. His highest grosser to date is Shrek 2, but he trails behind our winner with a puny $3.8 billion in total box office sales.
