Robert Downey, Jr. tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2012 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (March 28) that Downey is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between March 2014 and March 2015, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American actor has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Downey Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdowney - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Robert) and a fashion line called “Robert Downey, Jr. Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Robert fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
