    Will Smith stands alone as the only actor to score a perfect 10 among industry voters in the Star Currency survey. Just look at the flashy box office numbers here to get an idea why. Among his feats: Seven of his live-action films debuted in the No. 1 slot at the North American box office, starting with Men in Black II (2002) through Hancock (2008) (the number jumps to eight if you count his voice work in the animated feature Shark Tale).

    "He has shown, time and again, that, in today's world, regardless of the material, people want to watch Will Smith. He is cross-genre and proved it multiple times," says Ashok Amritraj, chairman and CEO of Hyde Park Entertainment.

    Though it's rare, it turns out an actor can march to his own drum and make money, too. The poster child for "indie actor as box office star," Johnny Depp's smart career move in taking the role of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise--and his ability to maintain his street credibility in doing so--elevated him to another level in the eyes of the industry and audiences.

    His collaborations with Tim Burton have also been a boon for both. "Johnny Depp is someone audiences are comfortable with seeing," says Patrick Gunn, managing director, Qualia Capital. "Women love him and his cool factor improved with men over time. That's a potent mix."

    Leonardo DiCaprio may not have the outrageous box office numbers some of his peers do (though there was that certain boat movie that keeps him, for now, king of the world in the major box office stat), and he seems to be OK with that. He has no interest in chasing one popcorn movie after another.

    "He's smart in that he doesn't try to make every movie a Leonardo DiCaprio movie," says one producer who participated in our survey. "He's going to do a Martin Scorsese film like Shutter Island with an incredible cast of actors. Revolutionary Road--the pressure is different. You don't have to produce a blockbuster with that kind of movie. And the studios get what that movie is and that it isn't going to make $100 million."

    Angelina Jolie wears a lot of hats: Oscar-winning actress (and nominated for 2008's Changeling); humanitarian; one-half of Hollywood's most famous couple; working mother; media magnet. She's got the acting credibility and exposure--key ingredients. Some of her peers on the upper reaches of the list have more box office to their names, but right now, the industry clearly recognizes what she can mean to a project.

    Having Brad Pitt in your project these days lets everyone involved sleep a bit easier. The Oscar nominee for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button could have gone the way of many promising young actors unfairly burdened with being "the Next (fill in the blank)," but Pitt took the torch and forged on, to date crafting a career that doesn't always cater to the safe choice.

    As his North American numbers have grown, so has his international appeal. Examples include Troy, at $133.3 million in North America vs. $364 million in the rest of world, and Babel, at $34.3 million in North America vs. $101 million internationally.
