On Thursday, we took a look at the world’s highest-paid actresses, which featured a list of 10 girls.

If you thought the top actresses got paid a hefty sum, wait until you see the amount of money that the top actors made during the last year.

Business magazine Forbes released its annual list of the world’s highest-paid actors earlier this month.

The list was led by Robert Downey Jr’s $80 million payday, which is $28 million more than Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, who is the highest-paid actress.

Downey has headed the list for three straight years now thanks to his film Avengers: Age of Ultron, which took home a $240 million gross in the People’s Republic alone.

Mark Wahlberg came in 10th on the list with a yearly earning of $32 million, which would have been good for third on the highest-paid actress list.

In total, there were 34 actors on the list, hailing from seven different countries and making a combined $941 million before taxes and fees between June 1, 2014 until June 1, 2015.

We’ve put the top 10 highest-paid actors in a slideshow below.
