It seems the “Iron Man” has done pretty well for himself. Robert Downey Jr.,  who is best known for his Tony Stark role in the action-film franchise, is raking in an estimated $75 million, according to Forbes.

The actor tops the annual list of highest-paid actors, but Channing Tatum and Hugh Jackman aren’t far behind.

Tatum brought in about $60 million last year and Jackman took home $55 million.

Forbes puts together their list by talking to agents, producer and other Hollywood insiders, but the rankings don’t account for taxes, fees or any of the other costs of stardom.

Downey Jr. tops the list because of his extremely successful roles in “The Avengers” and “Iron Man 3.” Hugh Jackman’s big pay day this year came with his work on “Les Miserables.”

Mark Walhberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson landed the fourth and fifth spots on the list, respectively.
