Robert Downey Jr
Avengers was the third highest-grossing movie of all time and no star benefited more from that than Robert Downey Jr. Tony Stark might not have been the leader of the group (that honor belongs to Captain America) but Downey was the only indispensable actor which meant he was able to demand the most money. As long as he's willing to keep putting on the Iron Man suit, Downey will remain one of Hollywood's highest-paid actors.
Jolie is the only woman making bank for playing action heroes these days. Salt, which was originally written for Tom Cruise, brought in $300 million on a budget of $110 million. Her other movie from 2010, The Tourist, earned 75 per cent of its $280 million box office overseas.
