There’s 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, it’s 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 Chan’s 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.)
So who was fortunate enough make the cut?
1. Robert Downey, Jr. – $80 million
1. Jennifer Lawrence - $52 million
Considering that The Simpsons has been an iconic show for more than 20 years, it’s no surprise that fans take their love of the show to a permanent level by inking equally iconic show moments onto their skin.
That’s right. They take their love of the show out of Springfield and onto their body somewhere — whether it’s just a recognizable character or a random moment from the show.
We’re sure Homer would approve.

In this surprisingly accurate video, these YouTubers manage to shorten the entire plot of Jurassic World into 90 seconds…and then recreate it with LEGO bricks!
There are certain movie scenes that are so poignant or engaging that you don’t even realize you’re holding your breath while you’re watching it. They become iconic and familiar to pretty much anyone who has seen the movie (and even those who haven’t).
A good film is a true work of cinematic art and, as these images prove, they stay with you long after the credits roll.
American Beauty (1999)
They say that everyone has a twin somewhere in the world. Most of us will never come across that doppelgänger given the vast expanse of the world, but if you’re a celebrity, your face is plastered everywhere and there are thousands of people who think they look like you. But what about people from the past?
Whether it’s a convict from the 1800’s who looks like Justin Timberlake or an ancient pope who looks so much like Sylvester Stallone that you will be amazed, these celebrities have twins from the past that might make you believe in time travel.
