Robert Downey Jr. may not be a billionaire like Tony Stark, but he did rank eighth among 2015’s highest paid celebrities according to Forbes. Taking in $80 million for this summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, Downey Jr. is notably the only actor on the top ten list. He ranked behind authors like James Patterson, who made $89 million, musical artists like Katy Perry, who made $135 million, and athletes like Floud Mayweather, who made $300 million. This is the second year in a row that Downey Jr. has stood out as Hollywood’s highest paid actor, making $75 million in 2014. Whether you love or hate all the Marvel movies he’s been headlining over the past few years, there’s no denying that Downey Jr. is worth every penny.
