The list, compiled by Forbes, measures the actors who earned the most money at the box office this year. DiCaprio's "Inception" made $1.1 billion at the global box office, while "Alice in Wonderland" made $1.03 billion.

Wasikowska also starred in the critically-acclaimed film "The Kids Are All Right," with Annette Benning and Julianne Moore. That film earned a respectable $29 million at the box office - a healthy return, since the film was made on just a $4 million dollar budget, Forbes notes.

Johnny Depp is also featured in two movies on the list - "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Tourist," which raked in $29 million at the global box office.

Will Smith's son Jaden also appeared on the list with his summer hit "The Karate Kid" ($359 million), as did stars Robert Pattinson ($749 million) and Kristen Stewart ($698 million), who brought in money both for the "Eclipse" and their non-"Twilight" projects - Patterson also starred in "Remember Me," while Stewart played Joan Jett in "The Runaways."

Also on the list: Robert Downey Jr., who earned $808 million at the box office with "Iron Man 2" and the comedy "Due Date," and Daniel Radcliffe, for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," which only opened a month ago but has already taken in $780 million worldwide.
