Downey, Hemsworth On Richest Actors List

The annual list of top earning actors published by Forbes magazine has come out for 2014 with Robert Downey Jr. heading up the list again. Downey took home approximately $75 million over the past financial year, two-thirds of which were backend profits from "The Avengers".

There was some surprising additions that show that young Hollywood is making bank on films despite claims these actors don't command the kinds of salaries that older stars (ala Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, even Will Smith) do. Downey's fellow Marvel star Chris Hemsworth made it into fifth place with $37 million, "Hangover" star Bradley Cooper nabbed a very impressive $46 million, and both the former (Christian Bale) and current (Ben Affleck) Batman tied for seventh and eighth with $35 million apiece. Here's the Top 10:

1 - Robert Downey Jr - $75 million
2 - Dwayne Johnson - $52 million

 3 - Bradley Cooper - $46 million

 4 - Leonardo DiCaprio - $39 million

5 - Chris Hemsworth - $37 million

6 - Liam Neeson - $36 million

 7 - Ben Affleck - $35 million

8 - Christian Bale - $35 million

9 - Will Smith - $32 million

 10 - Mark Wahlberg - $32 million
