Acting is a passion for the top Hollywood actors. The top paid Hollywood actors know though that passion doesn’t pay the bills. It’s the blood, sweat and tears that generate a good income, and the passion is what lets you stand out as the leader of the pack.
Here’s a look at the top 3 highest paid actors in Hollywood for the year 2014
That must be what Robert Downey, Jr knows, because in 2014 he was the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, earning an annual total of $75 million for the period from June 2013 to June 2014. His major roles in the Marvel movies have garnered him series benefits.
In second place is Dwayne Johnson (the Rock) with a total of $52 million. The Rock has been extremely busy the last few years and has acted in 13 movies over the last 5 years.
Bradley Cooper comes in at third with an annual income of $46 million. His most recent role as Chris Kyle in American Sniper took Cooper in a very different direction to his usual acting roles, but in the end it certainly paid off.
What does stand out significantly when looking at the top 10 list is that not a single woman made it to the top 10. Sandra Bullock is reported to have earned $51 million in the year 2014, thanks to the now well known Gravity. This makes her the highest paid female actress, with Angelina Jolie the second highest paid actress for 2014 earning $30 million for the year.
