Robert Downey Jr. joins the $20 million club, as the “Iron Man” actor reportedly earned an average of $20 million for every film. Who are the other actors and actresses joining the club? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Robert Downey Jr. became more famous after his role as Iron Man. It’s no wonder how Downey Jr. has recently joined the $20 million club alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Denzel Washington.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Downey Jr. gets an average of $20 million from his “Iron Man” films. The outlet cited though that his movie, “Bad Judge” did not fare as well, but his upcoming movie, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is expected to give him millions.
Not only is Downey Jr. a big paycheck receiver, he’s also a big giver. On March 2, Downey Jr. announced (via Blastr) that he will be running a contest for fans who want to attend the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” premiere and a full day of fun and adventure in exchange for a donation, as little as $10, to the children’s charity, Julia’s House.
Downey Jr. entered the $20 million club alongside “The Wolf of Wall Street” actor Leonardo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington and Matt Damon.
The outlet cited that DiCaprio is at the top of the list with an average earning of $25 million in his movie, “The Wolf of Wall Street.” It has been noted, though, that this figure includes the cost of production and budget overruns.
Following Downey Jr. and DiCaprio is Bradley Cooper, who earned an average of $15 – 20 million in his movie, “American Sniper” following the success of the third installment to the comedy film, “Hangover.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson receives an average of $14 – 15 million per movie from his films, “Hercules” and “San Andreas.” While Johnson is known for his role in “Fast and Furious 7,” the outlet cited that Johnson earned less than this figure for the movie.
Joining the list are actresses Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Melissa McCarthy.
The new A-List will be released on The Hollywood Reporter’s April 10 magazine issue.
