Leonardo DiCaprio's box-office hits and uber-talent to make everything he touches turn to gold landed him as Forbes.com's highest-grossing actor of 2010 -- as if we needed another reason to dream about sinking our femme fatale claws into the dreamy actor.

Just how much of a money-maker was Leonardo DiCaprio in 2010? According to Forbes, Leo brought in $1.1 billion making cinematic gold out of such hits as Inception and Shutter Island. Inception alone made the star's beautiful dreams come true, earning him $50 million just for showing up and being awesome -- but that doesn't even include the money tree known as DVD sales.

Leonardo DiCaprio actually took a detour from his usual $20 million a movie to make a sweet deal with Inception's director, Christopher Nolan -- they agreed to split part of the "first dollar gross." Something tells us Leonardo DiCaprio is happy with his decision to work on the film that was once considered a risk.

While Leonardo DiCaprio is sitting pretty, and we do mean pretty -- in his life made of billions -- he isn't the only one. Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska also made Forbes' highest-grossing stars of 2010 list. The duo came in right behind DiCaprio primarily because of their smash hit Alice in Wonderland. Tim Burton's twisted take on a classic brought in $1.03 billion at the box office.

Robert Downey Jr and Daniel Radcliffe rounded out the Forbes list coming in fourth and fifth.
