Theres really no way to argue against the fact that actors are paid insane amounts of money more money than 99.9 percent of us will ever see in our lives or those of generations that come after us.
But putting that fact aside, its always interesting to hear which actors are paid the most insane amounts of money for creating the entertainment that we spend our own money on.
And, for the third year in a row, Robert Downey Jr.s $80 million payday is more than any other leading man on the planet $30 million above Hong Kong hero Jackie Chans second place haul, to be exact, according to Forbes annual list.
The highest-paid actors, who hail from seven countries, earned a combined $941 million before taxes and fees between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015.
The list measures earnings before subtracting management fees and taxes; figures are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers, lawyers and stars themselves.
(Forbes said that a separate list of highest-paid actresses will be published later.)
