Robert Downey Jr has been the world's highest paid actor for the third time in a row by Forbes, thanks in no small part to the power of the Chinese box office.
"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" star took home $80 million last year, according to the ranking published Tuesday, helped by moviegoers in China where the film grossed a whopping $240 million.
The list of leading men saw Hong Kong action hero Jackie Chan, who stars in "Dragon Blade", come in second with $50 million. Vin Diesel was not far behind, netting $47 million for his part in "Furious 7." (culled from Tiffany Ap report)
