Seth RogenFor all of you people who like lists and, you know, things in ascending order, you'll be heartened to hear that business magazine Forbes has published a list of "the hardest-working actors."

Stop right there if you think this list is a numerical rundown of those method lovers who sweat blood and tears to bring a character to life, (i.e., Robert De Niro putting on 70 pounds to play Jake LaMotta in 'Raging Bull' or Adrien Brody selling everything he owned and learning to play perfect Chopin for 'The Pianist').

Basically, Forbes looked at 559 films that earned over $20 million each (in the U.S.) between January 2005 and December 2009. Actors who chalked up the most starring roles and whose films earned the most money got on the list.
