Ashton Kutcher Tops Forbes’ List of Highest Paid TV Actors
Ashton Kutcher steals Charlie Sheen big time. Since replacing Sheen on Two and a Half Men, Kutcher has rocketed to the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ list of highest paid TV actors. The business magazine unveiled the list on Wednesday, following the July announcement of TV’s highest paid actresses. Between May 2011 and May 2012, Ashton Kutcher earned whopping $24 million, Forbes estimates. One difference: Sheen was No. 1 with earnings of $40 million. Kutcher’s earnings are also boosted by his appearances in Nikon camera commercials and his continued investments in Silicon Valley. He got in early on Skype, Spotify and Airbnb.
