In what would seem like an utterly impossible headline back in the late 90s, former bad boy Robert Downey Jr has topped this year's list of the highest paid actors.

The expert money folk at Forbes have placed the Iron Man 3 star at the top of their annual list after he brought in an estimated $75 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Surprisingly close behind him is relative box office newbie Channing Tatum who might have seen his last film White House Down disappoint at the US box office but still raked in around $60 million in the past year. A lot of this came from his work in sleeper hit Magic Mike, where he also received a percentage of the profits.

Next down the list is Hugh Jackman, with $55 million in the bank, thanks to his roles in Les Miserables and The Wolverine. The top five is then rounded out with Mark Wahlberg and The Rock.

The full list is below:

1. Robert Downey Jr $75 million

2. Channing Tatum $60 million

3. Hugh Jackman $55 million

4. Mark Wahlberg $52 million

5. The Rock $46 million

6. Leonardo DiCaprio $39 million

7. Adam Sandler $37 million

8. Tom Cruise $35 million

9. Denzel Washington $33 million

10. Liam Neeson $32 million
