17. ROBERT DOWNEY JR. – $250 MILLION
Robert Downey Jr. has always been an impressive actor, earning his first Oscar nomination at the age of 27. However, he ran into trouble with drugs and derailed his career. When he came back, it was in a very big way, getting roles in film and television. He became a household name once again when he landed the role of Iron Man, and then Sherlock Holmes. He was the highest paid actor in 2015 at $80 million.
