Sydney native Hugh Jackman scratched his way on top of Australia’s Richest Entertainers List.

The Wolverine is the richest Australian entertainer for 2013 as reporter by Business Review Weekly, after amassing $46.8 million earnings, a number twice that of the second placer The Wiggles with only $18.2 million.

The 45-year-old The Boy From Oz had a very profitable year this year with his blockbuster movie, The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Prisoners. He also scored huge endorsement deals with Audi and Lipton.

In second place is children’s music group The Wiggles with $18.2 million earnings. The band is composed of Anthony Field, Emma Watkins, Simon Pryce, and Lachlan Gillespie.

Cate Blanchett ($17.2 million), Russell Crowe ($15.1 million) and Simon Baker ($10.1 million) took the third, fourth and fifth spots, respectively.

Those who entered the top 10 are Nicole Kidman ($8.6 million), Chris Hemsworth ($7.5 million), Keith Urban ($6.8 million), Curtis Stone ($6.4 million) and Miranda Kerr ($6 million).

Jackman is among the 24 actors who entered this year’s list. He also ranked third as the highest paid male actor by Forbes magazine with $55 million earnings. He came behind Robert Downy Jr. who topped the list followed by Channing Tatum.
