So, apparently Forbes has named American actor, director, playwright, screenwriter, producer, author, and songwriter (whew!) Tyler Perry as the highest paid man in Hollywood.
Atlanta, Georgia based Tyler Perry ranks number one on the list with total gross earnings of $130 million (One Hundred and Thirty million dollars). Jerry Bruckheimer and Steven Spielberg do follow closely in second ($113 million) and third ($107 million) positions respectively.
In 2005, he released his first film, Dairy of a Mad Black Woman and has won over 20 awards - and counting, including the MTV Movie Awards 'Best Comedic Performance'.
