Robert Downey Jr is On Top Of Cash Mountain
Robert Downey Jr used to be considered a "big risk" for movie executives and they shied away from putting him in their movies. Now his name means "Big Money". Movie's Iron Man is iron clad among Hollywood's top paid actors. "Forbes'" latest list of the highest earning actors puts Robert Downey, Jr. at number one for a second straight year. Downey reportedly made an estimated 75-million dollars between June 2013 and June 2014 with his superhero action films "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3" crossing the billion-dollar mark at the box office.
