This year's "Highest Paid Actors" list has been released by Forbes and given the monster year Tony Stark had, it's no surprise that Robert Downey Jr. tops them all.

Banking an impressive $75 million is apparently not all that hard to do when your movie rockets to #3 of the highest grossing movies of all time, like The Avengers did.

Now that he's signed on for more Iron Man and Avengers 2, it won't be surprising if Robert Downey Jr. makes numerous repeat appearances on this list in the coming years.

However, this list teaches us that if you are going to make a movie about being a male stripper, go ahead and do so with a lot of your own money.

Robert Downey, Jr. gave us a real scare there for a little while, talkin' bout "I want to stop playing super heroes."

Well, it seems that Disney and Marvel Studios convinced him otherwise. I wonder how they did it!? (he asks, holding up a sack of money)

Sorry, the cynical side of me always pops out at times like this. But we should all actually be excited that Downey will play Iron Man in The Avengers 2 and 3 as per a new two-picture deal, because he is definitely the heart of that franchise.

Still, the news seems to suggest that Downey is done with Iron Man movies, which means that Disney will have to deal with his departure relatively soon.

They could recast the character, reboot the series, or just kill Stark off. Our guess is that however they decide Downey should part the role, they will address it in Iron Man 3.

This is both adorable and heart-breaking.

Earlier this week, 18-month-old Jaxson Denno was taken to Western Massachusetts to meet Iron Man because Robert Downey Jr. was filming a movie in the towns of Sunderland and Shelburne Falls.

The only hiccup? Downey did not bring his superhero suit with him, much to the major chagrin of the crying child.

And Jaxson's mother, Heather, captured the disappointing moment on camera:

"He was fine as soon as [Downey] talked to him," Heather Denno told People, explaining that her son "was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit."

Look at it this way, Jaxson: you got to at least meet Tony Stark! But we know: it's just not the same.
