LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ashton Kutcher had a better year than any other TV star – at least in the bank account department!
The 35-year-old “Two and a Half Men” star pulled in a whopping $24 million between June 2012 and June 2013, Forbes reported.
The actor’s bank account will see yet another bump (in a big way!) when his episodes of the CBS sitcom go into syndication.
Ashton’s “Men” co-star, Jon Cryer, came in second on Forbes’ list, pulling in an impressive $21 million.
Ray Romano came in third with $16 million, mainly for royalties for reruns of “Everybody Loves Raymond,” but his stint on “Parenthood” also helped.
“How I Met Your Mother’s” Neil Patrick Harris and “NCIS” star Mark Harmon tied for fourth place with $15 million each.
Rounding out the top five is “Grey’s Anatomy’s” Patrick Dempsey, who reportedly made $13 million.
