'Gravity' and 'The Heat's successes with audiences helped propel Sandra Bullock to number five in the list - compiled by Forbes - with her movies grossing a total of $862 million this year.

In sixth place was another 'Fast & Furious 6' actor, the late Paul Walker, who passed away last month after a car accident, bringing in $789 million, all of which came from the latest installment of the action franchise.

In joint seventh place were 'Monsters University' stars Billy Crystal and John Goodman, with the animated tale bringing in $743 million.

'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Rush' actor Chris Hemsworth's 2013 work grossed $701 million, ranking him ninth, and 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' actress Jennifer Lawrence completed the top 10 with box office takings of $700 million.
