Here's a look at some A-list Hollywood actors who are worth their weight in Hollywood gold. Although some of these heavy weights haven't ever won an Oscar (Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz), their movies are some of the highest box office earners. And unfortunately for some, life after the golden prize can mean box office poison. Academy award winning actors, Kim Basinger and Marisa Tomei haven't yet been cast in Oscar worthy performances after winning. Others, such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Cuba Gooding Jr. have gone on to star in duds or weak films.
