T10. Bruce Lee – $9 million
Bruce Lee may have had a short life (he died at just age 32), but he paved the way for Asian-Americans in United States pop culture. Lee shot to fame in films such as Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon, and Enter the Dragon. He also worked as not only an actor, but a martial arts instructor and filmmaker. He has received various posthumous awards, including the Founders Award and a 7-foot tall statue. Even after his death in 1973, Bruce Lee still ranks as a top-earning dead celeb making $7 million this year and his work in those classic films is still admired.
