Robert Downey Jr. and Jennifer Lawrence Are Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actors

Robert Downey Jr. and Jennifer Lawrence Are Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actors:

Forbes finished its listings of the highest-paid stars in Hollywood this week, and as with the Highest-Paid Actors list, the Highest-Paid Actress in the world was somewhat easy to predict.

Robert Downey Jr. is still the top star in the world, earning $80 million this year thanks to the continued success of his Marvel Studios films, as well as endorsement deals and other bells and whistles. When the actress list came out yesterday, the top name was, unsurprisingly, Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $52 million thanks to the Hunger Games and X-Men franchises. Lawrence also recently scored a $20 million payday to star in the sci-fi drama Passengers, so expect her numbers to be even bigger next year.

As for other big female names on the list, Downey’s Avengers co-star Scarlett Johansson came in second at $35.5 million, Spy star Melissa McCarthy was third with $23 million, Chinese superstar Bingbing Fan was fourth with $21 million, and Jennifer Aniston was fifth with $16.5 million.

Lawrence’s number, a full million higher than last year’s winner — Sandra Bullock — suggests that women in Hollywood are getting paid more, but as The Mary Sue’s analysis points out, the pay gap between men and women on the big screen is still real. We could look at the numbers in many different ways, but if you think that Adam Sandler deserves to be paid more than Scarlett Johansson at this point, you’re out of your mind.
