Harrison Ford Just Became the Highest-Grossing Actor in U.S. Box Office History

HIs movies took in $4.71 billion

Bolstered by the insane ticket sales of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the 73-year-old star has grossed more at the box office in the U.S. than any other actor. His leading number currently sits at $4.71 billion, according to Box Office Mojo.

Ford took the crown from another member of the Star Wars franchise: Samuel L. Jackson, who starred in all three prequels. Jackson was also in a handful of Marvel movies, including The Avengers. He’s at $4.63 billion.

The top five is rounded out by a formidable trio of Tom Hanks ($4.33 billion), Morgan Freeman ($4.32 billion), and Eddie Murphy ($3.81 billion). The highest-placed actress is Cameron Diaz at No. 15 with $3.03 billion.

As of now, The Force Awakens has raked in over $770 million domestically.
