The 61-year-old has reinvented himself as an action star and it has paid off in spades for the Ballymena native.
Irish American Robert Downey Junior still heads the box office list, making $75 million last year.
Neeson has made the top six despite the huge personal tragedy of losing his wife Natasha in a skiing accident in 2009.

His dedication and willingness to work has certainly paid off.
