Who’s the Highest-Paid Actor in the World? Forbes Unveils the New List

Aug 4, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Forbes magazine has taken the wraps off the 2015 list of the World’s Highest Paid Actors, and for the third consecutive year, Robert Downey Jr. tops the list. The “Iron Man” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” star checked in with $80 million in paychecks for the 12-month period.

Downey had a sizable cushion over No. 2 Jackie Chan, who settled for $50 million to wind up in second place with a schedule of U.S.-China co-productions such as “Dragon Blade.”

For the first time, the top 10 includes Bollywood stars, with Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar all making the top 10.

Here’s the top 10:

  1. Robert Downey Jr. — $80 million
  2. Jackie Chan — $50 million
  3. Vin Diesel — $47 million
  4. Bradley Cooper — $41.5 million
  5. Adam Sandler — $41 million
  6. Tom Cruise — $40 million
  7. Amitabh Bachchan — $33.5 million

(tie) Salman Khan — $33.5 million

  1. Akshay Kumar — $32.5 million
  2. Mark Wahlberg — $32 millionavengers age of ultron-movie poster


  1. What a shock. No women crack the top 10. Or for that matter, the top 33 that are listed by Forbes. Coincidence? I’m certain it is. What else COULD it be?

  2. This, pretty much, explains why we are such a violent (Bleep)-ing society.
