Tyler Perry has been revealed as one of Hollywood’s top 15 highest paid men according to Forbes. Perry, known widely for films and stage plays including Why Did I Get Married, Madea’s Family Reunion, and The Family That Preys, not only made the list but beat out veterans including Harrison Ford in 2008. According to Forbes, Perry earned $75 million, placing him just outside the top five that includes Dr. Phil ($80 million) and chart-topper George Lucas ($170 million). “His deal with distributor Lionsgate allows Perry to keep much of the money from his films. Perry also had a surprise cameo in this summer’s Star Trek reboot,” says Forbes. Perry’s next project, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, starring Mary J. Blige and Gladys Knight is due in theaters September 11.
