Forbes list Jim Carrey at Number 812 Jun 2009
By Nicola West (Editor/Writer (UK))
When Jim Carrey announced that he was NOT going to take his usual fee for the movie "Yes Man", opting instead to be a film investor in exchange for a third of all profits, eyebrows were raised.

The success of this strategy ensured his place in the Forbes 'Hollywood's Top-Earning Actors' list with Jim at No. 8, above Brad Pitt and behind Tom Cruise.
Harrison Ford was No. 1 with earnings of $65 million between June 2008 and June 2009.
