Highest Paid Actors of 2015: Who Took the Top Spot AGAIN?

by at .  Updated at .

Forbes released its annual list of the year's highest paid actors today, and the full list may surprise you.

Not because of who's number one, or course. No, that honor once again goes to Robert Downey Jr., who - thanks in no small part to the boffo box office of Avengers: Age of Ultron - managed to pull in an astonishing $80 million last year.

But that doesn't mean that all of the men who made the top ten are household names.

This is the first year that the magazine has included international stars on its list, and it seems that some of Bollywood's biggest stars are seriously raking it in.

Check out the gallery below and then look at your most recent pay stub for a full dose of Vin Diesel envy:
