Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the top-earning actors in Hollywood, and you may find yourself astonished not only by the stars who took the top two spots, but also by the staggering amount some A-listers pulled in this past year. 

Amazingly, the highest paid actor of 2013 has managed to do it again, as Robert Downey, Jr. took home a cool $75 million thanks to his ongoing role as Tony Stark/Iron Man. 

Mark Wahlberg
The former Marky Mark earned $32 million in the past year, thanks to roles in films like Lone Survivor and Pain & Gain.

Downey played hardball before signing on to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he's reportedly been rewarded with his biggest pay day to date.

And just how big has Marvel's tent pole franchise become? The number five spot on the list is none other than Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, who - despite being paid about half what Downey pulled in last year - still took home a not-too-shabby $39 mill.

But while the actors in the gallery above certainly aren't hurting, the movie industry ain't what it used to be and of all the past year's top earning actors, only RDJ (just barely) cracked the top 10 on Forbes' 2014 list of the most powerful entertainers.

It's been 18 years since Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum (with help from Randy Quaid) saved the world from aliens in the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day, a film which has grossed more than $800 million worldwide.

With talks of a sequel in the works, and with several of the original film's principal cast set to reprise their roles, we thought we'd take a walk down memory lane to see where the cast of Independence Day is now.

Will Smith
Will Smith is still making movies, though none have grossed as much worldwide as Independence Day. He WAS nominated for two Oscars, though, so that doesn't suck.

Will Smith, of course, has gone on to great success in his post-pilot days, earning two Oscar nominations and making headlines for his daughter Willow Smith's behavior.

Happy Father's Day from The Hollywood Gossip! It's time to celebrate the man in your life who, well, gave you life. Or at least the one who helped raise you.

Hollywood is notorious for its unflattering portrayals of fathers as being bumbling and incompetent men who have no business raising babies.

In real life, there are some celebrity dads (and regular, non-celebrity dads, too) who throw that trope right out the window and proving that they really do deserve that Dad of the Year award.

From being there for preschool pickup to rearranging work schedules to handle the nightly bedtime routine to coaching little league teams, our favorite famous dads do it all and do it in style.

Join us in celebrating 15 celebrity dads we love below!

Summer might not officially begin until June 21, but unofficially, the hottest season of the year is here. Bathing suits, sunscreen, and the beach are all calling our names.

You know what else this season needs? More... MUSIC. Songs of summer, to be exact.

What, exactly, IS a "song of summer"? Right now it's what every artist is trying to acquire: the most played song of the season that most ... well, reminds us of summer.

Our favorite warm-weather jams conjure up images of bodies of water, dancing, frozen and/or boozy drinks, and maybe even some lovin'. Preferably all of the above.

To that end, we've compiled a playlist of 21 songs of summer, comprised of #1 hits and hot songs we love that remind us of our carefree time in the sun.

Roll your windows down, turn your radio up, and cruise through this gallery ...

Summertime
THE song of summer, Will Smith's "Summertime" has been oft-imitated, never duplicated.

In the real world, there are two rules to follow for a healthy work environment:

  1. Don't steal someone else's food from the fridge.
  2. Don't date your coworkers.

Both make for awkward water cooler run-ins and should probably be avoided.

Unless, of course, you're a famous movie star who dates other famous movie stars and you decide to date your coworkers. Then things just get interesting and awkward.

Especially when the characters you're portraying are together on screen.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Channing Tatum met now-wife Jenna Dewan on the set of Step Up. She was totally impressed by his moves.

Why? LOVE SCENES. Look no further than Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut to see what we mean. Pretty sure Keith Urban's neeeeeever watching THAT movie.

Guy love, that’s all it is... Guy love, he’s mine I’m his... There’s nothing gay about it in our eyes... It’s guy love, between two guys.

Indeed, J.D. and Turk had it right a long time ago on Scrubs.

Willow Smith and Moises Arias are still hanging out in spite of the Child Protective Services investigation into her parents, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.

The 13-year-old star found herself in the middle of controversy last week after a provocative photo was released of her in bed with the actor, who is 20.

But Willow hasn't seemed to let the scrutiny get in the way of living life or in the middle of her relationship with Arias, which her family says is not sexual.

Willow Smith was seen out and about while accompanied by her usual crew of friends for sushi at Sugarfish in Calabasas, Calif., on Saturday evening.

Not only did brother Jaden, 15, accompany Willow to the restaurant but so did Moises Arias, the shirtless man in the image posted on Kylie Jenner's Tumblr.

Jada Pinkett-Smith may think there's no cause to be concerned about the photo of her daughter Willow Smith in bed with Moises Arias, a 20-year-old actor and friend of the family, but the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services reportedly begs to differ.

A source tells Radar Online that Child Protective Services is investigating the Smith family in connection with the controversial photo that leaked online earlier this month.

"The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department," says the insider.

"Will and Jada have been extremely cooperative with officials. Of course, they aren't happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand."

The source adds that both Willow and Arias will be interviewed by the authorities:

Willow Smith is old and mature enough to make her own decisions, according to her parents, who consider her controversial photo with Moises Arias a non-issue.

  • Will and Jada
  • Willow Smith, Moises Arias

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith trust Willow and say that if her actions don't clearly cross a line - which they feel did not happen here - they won't intervene.

Will and Jada view the now-famous and controversial photo of Willow Smith in bed with 20-year-old actor Moises Arias as innocent fun, and/or artistic expression.

Whatever it is, they really don't care. The Smiths have known Moises Arias for years, and he's best friends with 15-year-old Jaden, who he considers "family."

For those reasons, they have no problems with the photograph.

According to multiple law enforcement sources, there is no problem with it from a legal standpoint. So say local officials who were asked about it by TMZ.
