Who Was Named The Highest Paid Actor In Hollywood?
Forbes has released its annual list of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. According to their website, they compiled the list by talking to agents, producers, managers and other industry players to determine that Robert Downey Jr. was the highest-paid actor between June 2012 and June 2013. The 48-year-old earned an estimated $75 million over the past year due in large part to his role as Tony Stark which he plays in both the Iron Man franchise and The Avengers. Robert took the largest paycheck over the rest of the ensemble cast in The Avengers and he is expected to get another huge payday once filming for the sequel starts in February. Channing Tatum came in second place with $60 million. Hugh Jackman, Mark Wahlberg, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson round out the top five. Despite taking the top spot on this list, Downey only ranked 20th on Forbes' Celebrity 100 list which involves both income and star power.
