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.)

The insanely popular blog Humans Of New York is filled with the beautiful and insightful thoughts of New Yorkers, yet it seemed to be missing something…
Comedian Jim Tews noticed this omission and set out to solve this with his Felines Of New York (FONY) blog, where he collects photos of New York’s cats and writes introspective and meaningful captions for them, based on the premise of HONY.
Let’s be honest and get this out of the way — there’s nothing easy about being down on your luck. When you’re worrying about basic things like food and shelter — you know, basic things needed for survival — it can be easy to become bitter and mean.
But as these less fortunate people have shown, they know that the competition for the all-mighty dollar is tough.
The solution? Get creative and show that although they might have lost a bit along the way, they haven’t lost their sense of humor.
