Jim Carrey tops the list in a poll of the Top Ten Money-Making Stars of 2003 in an annual survey of cinema operators in the US.
Nicole Kidman finished second, followed by Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe, Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell and Renee Zellweger.
The Quigley Poll, conducted every year since 1932, asks owners to vote for the 10 stars who generated the most box-office revenue for their cinemas.
They also were asked to name the Stars of Tomorrow for 2003 - one actor and one actress who they feel will be top money-makers in the years to come. The 2003 winners are Ashton Kutcher and Scarlett Johansson.
