This list shows the highest grossing stars of 2001 based on the Worldwide box office of the movies they had a leading role in in 2001 and the two preceeding years (voice-only roles excluded).

The Star Score in this list represent points assigned to each of the leading stars of top 100 (based on worldwide box office) movies in the current year and two preceding years.
