Robert Downey Jr. topped the 2015 Forbes ranking of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, his third year in a row leading the list. Check out who else made the cut and how much they earned in the gallery below!
Downey Jr. earned a reported $80 million between June 2014 and June 2015, thanks to the success of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which he stars as Iron Man. Although Jackie Chan hasn’t been particularly active in Hollywood as of late, he remains as big a movie star in China as ever, helping the action hero to take the number two spot with $50 million. Vin Diesel, who was among the stars who helped this year’s Furious 7 become the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time, secured third place with $47 million.
Bradley Cooper took the number four position with $41.5 million, due to the massive box office success of American Sniper, in which he starred and produced. Rounding out the top five was Adam Sandler, who pocketed $41 million for his deal with Netflix, the streaming service for which he’ll exclusively make four movies. An honorable mention goes out to Tom Cruise, who sits at number six with a not-too-shabby year’s take of $40 million.
