Robert Downey Jr. is the Highest Paid Actor in Hollywood

Forbes magazine has just revealed its highly paid actor in Hollywood top. The magazine indicates that Robert Downey Jr. is still the best paid actor at the moment when it comes to the Hollywood world. 

Forbes magazine has become quite well known for its many most highly paid tops. Now, it has revealed that Robert Downey Jr. earned no less than $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014. This is the second year in a row when the popular actor receives such an honor. According to Forbes, Robert Downey Jr. made the same amount of money in 2013, as well. 

It has also been revealed now that the most important and the most successful project for Robert Downey Jr. remains his role in Iron Man. All the three Iron Man movies in which Downey Jr. starred so far were huge successes. The actor played Iron Man in three high-grossing movies. This also includes the 2012 hit, The Avengers. The star will once again wear the Iron Man costume in 2015, when he will be featured in the Avengers sequel. 

Forbes claims that in case any other movies featuring Iron Man will be released, this role will continue to be played by Robert Downey Jr. So, what the magazine claims is that “it would be incredibly difficult for Marvel to continue making ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Avengers’ films without him.” And the truth is that the actor’s image in the role of Iron Man has become widely popular. 

The second place in the top released by Forbes is occupied by The Rock Johnson. The famous actor and wrestler starred in no less than five movies. Forbes claims that Johnson made about $52 million between June 2013 and June 2014. 

Bradley Cooper is ranked on the third place of this top. The famous actor earned no less than $46 million from his successful movies.
