London: Actor Sacha Baron Cohen has been named Britain`s highest-paid Hollywood star.

The 41-year-old actor banked over 20 million pounds in the last year after seeing box office success with `The Dictator` and `Les Miserables` but he missed out on a place in the Forbes Celebrity 100, reported Daily Mail.

Cohen also added to his earnings with payment for his role as the voice of the lemur King Julien in `Madagascar 3`, helping him earn more than fellow countryman Robert Pattinson.

Despite earning more than Tom Hanks, 56 (17 million pounds) and Brad Pitt, 49 (16 million pounds), the star wasn`t included on the annual Forbes Celebrity 100 list because he wasn`t considered famous enough in the US.

It was topped by Tom Cruise, 50, whose success in the likes of `Jack Reacher` and `Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol` earned him 48 million pounds in 2012.

Despite missing out on the list, Cohen rounded off 2012 in style when - dressed as his alter-ego Ali G - he was honoured with an Outstanding Achievement to Comedy prize at the British Comedy Awards in December.
