If the same 20 actors and actresses are making movies in Hollywood, how could they not be the highest paid celebrities?? If roles were given to other up and coming new actors, sure the numbers will be a lot lower.

Lots of money and lots of husbands.

I kinda like her. I saw this god-awful movie “Sarah” that would have been even worse had she not been in it.

These are the millionaires telling us how to live and think.

Still nothing compared to the billionaires telling us how to live and think, lol

3 ( +3 / -0 )

According to the Forbes ranking of highest-paid actors in the world, published Wednesday, Downey Jr. comes in at third place with $66 million total, behind fellow Avenger Chris Hemsworth ($76.4 million) and Dwayne Johnson ($89.4 million).

They are all overpaid. I wouldn’t go to see a movie just because she acts in it, however, Dwayne Johnson is another story!

One ex scientologist and one very active scientologist.

These are the millionaires telling us how to live and think.

And to think that Scarlett Johansson became famous starting here in Japan: "Lost in Translation".

You would think with all that money, she could afford some hand soap.

Good luck to them all, oh to be a dollar behind them, sigh.

I think I have done very well, but I am not on any list and that is good as I am out of the public eye.

What a load of nonsense. I thought Forbes was a serious publication.

Scarlett Johansson is a good actor. Is she the best? Depends on what kind of films you like, I guess.

Thought she was excellent in Under the Skin.

she received $59 Million from Netflix to do her documentary

If this earned her a place on the highest-paid ACTRESS list, it wouldn't be much a documentary

4 ( +4 / -0 )

This is inaccurate. Maybe the don’t want to place Beyoncé on the list. However, she received $59 Million from Netflix to do her documentary. She also received close to $25 Million from Disney to voice Nala in the Lion King. That makes her dwarf Scarlet Johansson.
