World's Highest-Paid Actors List Continues To Include Adam Sandler

August 5, 2015


As will likely continue to be the case for as long as Marvel keeps paying him to grow a little goatee, Robert Downey Jr. is still making more money than any other actor on Earth. He's at the top of Forbes' yearly list of the highest-paid actors in the world, the magazine reporting that Downey has brought in an astounding $80 million since last June.

In a distant second, Jackie Chan apparently got a huge chunk of the cost from starring in the most expensive Chinese-language film in history and earned $50 million. Furious 7 hoisted Vin Diesel up to third place, while his Guardians of the Galaxy co-voice Bradley Cooper managed fourth thanks to American Sniper--which he also produced--and not at all thanks to Aloha.

Rounding out the top five, it's frequent Most Overpaid Actors list member Adam Sandler, whose four-film Netflix deal has allowed him to clad himself the most luxurious of athletic shorts.

Here's the top ten of the list. The names you don't recognize above Mark Wahlberg should be a sign that Bollywood is getting huge, and that Wahlberg didn't get paid nearly enough for his mid-Transformers Bud Light commercial.

1. Robert Downey, Jr. - $80M
2. Jackie Chan - $50M
3. Vin Diesel - $47M
4. Bradley Cooper - $41.5M
5. Adam Sandler - $41M
6. Tom Cruise - $40M
7. Amitabh Bachchan - $33.5M
7. Salman Khan - $33.5M
9. Akshay Kumar - $32.5M
10. Mark Wahlberg - $32M
