Going from underwear model to filthy rich TV actor is a pretty sweet trajectory, and Ashton Kutcher has officially (and somewhat seamlessly) made the leap.
It was announced this week that Ashton is the highest-paid actor on TV, raking in $24 million a year for his work on Two and a Half Men. While his paycheck pales in comparison to his predecessor, Charlie Sheen, it's still millions ahead of the second-highest earner, Ray Romano, who scored only $18 million for his work in Men of a Certain Age.
30 Rock's Alec Baldwin and NCIS star Mark Harmon both earned $15 million; Tim Allen made $14 million for his role on Last Man Standing; and The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, each managed to net $8 million.
Regardless of his wealth, sources close to Ashton's ex, Demi Moore, claim their high-profile divorce proceedings have been stalled because the actor is "so cheap."
