‘Black Panther’ Star Letitia Wright Is The Highest Box Office-Grossing Actor Of 2018—And Her Response Is Epic 🙌

If you were a fan of movies in 2018, there’s a good chance you saw Letitia Wright in action. This year was her time to shine. She played a huge role in Black Panther, then she hit the screen again in Avengers: Infinity War, Ready Player One and The Commuter. According to Fandango data, Letitia Wright was the single performer who brought in the most money for studios.

All told, Letitia Wright brought studios $1.55 billion. Yes, billion. Yes, with a B.

You’d think that studios would want to keep their proverbial cash-cow happy by paying her well (and make no mistake – like all movie stars, Letitia makes way more money than most of us could ever imagine) but homegirl is definitely worth more, you know? Letitia makes the most money for the studios, but she’s nowhere near the Forbes Top Ten. This years top grossing actor, for example, was George Clooney… again.

But he didn’t even act in any movies in 2018, so…? 

 

None of the cast of Black Panther appears anywhere near the Forbes Top Ten list of highest paid actors for the year. That seems strange considering how well the film did.

Letitia’s not complaining, but the woman knows her worth and isn’t afraid to comment about it. Check out her response when Fandango posted a chart based off of their data: 

 

The post may have been meant in jest, but people saw the validity of her point right away. So Twitter cheered her on to go make the money she deserves! 

 

Some people are pretty sure they just solved a Wakandan mystery.

With her talent and intellect, we’re pretty sure Letitia, her bank account, and screen numbers will do just fine. lol.

Erica is the consummate cool-kid. She’s so cool that she’s been talked about in magazines, on blogs and on the radio after losing her left eye because of a piece of glitter. She is still actively mourning the passing of Prince and hopes to one day do an all-iguana remake of Graffiti Bridge since iguanas are plentiful near her home in South Florida. She has yet to find one that can really nail the “ahhhyayayeaheaheah” that Tevin Campbell does in Round and Round, and everyone knows the music is the important part of any Prince film. She’s a mother, singer, writer and (if the internet is to be believed - which we all know it is) a Nigerian socialite mid-ranking member of the Illuminati. She prides herself on being the most popular one-eyed rock star under 5 ft tall in pretty much any room she walks into.
