Two box office hits are putting Leonardo DiCaprio at the top of "Forbes" magazine's year-end list of the Top Grossing Actors of 2010.

Citing his star turns in the hit films "Shutter Island" and "Inception," "Forbes" says DiCaprio was the multi-million-dollar leading man when it came to movie ticket sales this year.

Combined, both films made a whopping $1.1 billion at the global box office.

Johnny Depp tied for second place on the "Forbes" list with his "Alice In Wonderland" co-star Mia Wasikowska.
