10. Daniel Day-Lewis Net Worth $50 million

Mister Daniel Day-Lewis made an impression when he played the ex-president Mister Abraham Lincoln in the masterpiece “Lincoln”.

He is also the only person in the film history to win the Oscar Award for Best Actor not once, but three times!

Daniel Day-Lewis was born and raised in London, England and that makes him one of the highest earning British actors in the entire world.

Lewis made his cinematographic debut in Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971), but then he acted on stage with the Bristol Old Vic and Royal Shakespeare Companies and did not appear on screen again until 1982, when he grabbed his first grown up role, a small part in Gandhi (1982).

He also appeared on British TV that year in Frost in May (1982) and How Many Miles to Babylon? (1982). Notable theatrical performances include Another Country (1982-83), Dracula (1984), and The Futurists (1986).
