It's official - Robert Downey Jr. is the world's highest paid actor.

Robert, 50, has once again earned the title after raking in a whopping $80 million (£51m) last year thanks to The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Yes, that's A LOT of money, but what's even more insane is that Robert has been named the world's highest paid actor by Forbes for the THIRD year in a row. It seems like no one else is even getting a look in!

Well, it certainly doesn't hurt to play Iron Man now, does it?

Trailing behind Robert is Hong Kong action hero Jackie Chan with an impressive $50 million, and Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel comes in third place with $47 million.

In fourth place is Bradley Cooper with $41.5 million and in fifth is Adam Sandler with an earning of $41 million.
