Robert Downey Jr. tops Forbes' list of Hollywood's highest-paid actors
Robert Downey Jr. is having a moment. Currently one of the biggest names in the Hollywood movie industry, this "Iron Man" just can't be stopped.
Downey recently starred in six movies that have each grossed over $500 million at the box office worldwide, and two of those films, "The Avengers" and the just-released "Iron Man 3," each earned over $1 billion. So it should come as no surprise that he sits at the top of Forbes' list of Hollywood's highest-paid actors with an estimated $75 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.
That's not bad at all, considering that fact that Downey used to be considered as "damaged goods" to studios due to his struggles with drug abuse. But he turned his sinking career around with the first installment in the "Iron Man" franchise, and since then there's been no stopping him.
