    Does it count if you don’t make it from acting though, because he didn’t make the money from acting but from the sale of a Tequila company. That’s like if Forbes classified him as a Guru on youtube back in 2007 to get a 1st place medallion. Sidenote: who Remember those medallions youtube used to give out?
