Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.

This year, Robert Downey Jr. topped the list with $75 million in earnings from his work in the mega-blockbusters Iron Man 3 and The Avengers.

Denzel Washington and The Rock were the two performers of color to make the top 10.

For 1o straight weeks in 2013 Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had a film in the top 10 of the box office. This year he headlined hits like GI Joe: Retaliation and Fast & Furious 6. He earned a whopping total of $46 million this year, placing him at #5 on the list.

Washington is on an upswing following his 2012 hits Safe House ($126 million at the box office) and Flight ($93 million). His deal for back-end profits on the latter film, which earned $162 million worldwide on a $31 million budget, paid off for the actor. He earned $33 million last year, ranking him at #9 on Forbes‘ list.

Washington is poised to capitalize on his A-list status again this summer with his highly anticipated action film 2 Guns, co-starring Mark Whalberg, which opens August 2nd.
