Good/bad news: it's your annual chance to get jealous at how rich actors are! Forbes has released their look at the highest paid actors in Hollywood and for the second year in a row, Robert Downey Jr has come out on top.

It'll make you even angrier to learn that he only released one film in the period and that was Chef, where he was essentially just cameoing. Hey, stop throwing things at us.

The Avengers star earned $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014, mainly for his work as Iron Man. He can next be seen in comedy drama The Judge. In second place is Dwayne Johnson, who is targeting the big and small screens with cinematic roles in Hercules and San Andreas on the way as well as headlining the TV show Ballers for HBO.

In third place, we have Bradley Cooper who has managed to combine work in Oscar-winning films like Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle with blockbusters like the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy.

Our key learning for being rich in Hollywood: versatility. Oh and being really really handsome.

You can see the full enviable list here:

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
