I have a slight man-crush on Matt Damon, and frankly, I'm not ashamed to admit that. I'll watch any film starring him even if the subject matter doesn't particularly interest me, like 2012's We Bought a Zoo or 2011's Contagion. According to Forbes Magazine, for every dollar he is paid, Damon has averaged returns of 29 dollars, and that's damn good value. In 2013 alone, Damon featured in three films - Elysium, The Zero Theorem and the fantastic Behind The Candelabra, and Damon earns a place on this list not because of his box office power, but simply because of his sheer amount of hard work. He not only stars in films, but also produces and writes them, like in the case of 2012's Promised Land, which highlighted his prominent anti-fracking stance. In fact, as an indication of how hard working he is, he has consistently made at least two films a year since 1994, and this is not the kind of fare that other "hard-working" or undiscerning actors like Michael Madsen churn. This record of big films, and the reutn of them is distinctly impressive, and definitely improves on Daniel Day-Lewis's record of "whenever I feel like doing one".
