The man practically made the MCU what it is so that’s gotta pay well, right?
Robert Downey, Jr. is an American actor, producer, and musician perhaps best known today for playing Iron Man in the Marvel movie series of the same name. He became one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood history thanks to the part.
Both in his personal and professional lives, Robert Downey, Jr., has seen some spectacular ups and downs. He was always regarded as a good actor, but he also had a bad tendency of drinking excessively and/or drugging himself into a stupor. Sadly, his way of life caught up to him and ruined his career. He eventually got himself cleaned out after spending time in jail and making several trips to rehab.
He rose to the top of Hollywood’s A-list in the previous ten years, featuring in a number of blockbuster films, including the “Sherlock Holmes” and “Iron Man” series, “The Soloist,” “Tropic Thunder,” and the unexpected indie smash “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints,” and “Kiss kiss, Ban Bang”.
RDJ’s net worth
Robert Downey, Jr has a net worth of $300 million. Robert became one of the highest-paid actors in the world between June 2016 and June 2017 after earning about $50 million. He made $80 million from June 2017 to June 2018. He made $65 million from June 2018 to June 2019.
Just $500,000 was RDJ’s profit from the first Iron Man film. His largest paychecks outside of Marvel are the $12 million he received for the 2010 film “Due Date” and the $15 million he received for the 2011 film “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.”
Robert will get at least $40 million and as much as $75 million from “Avengers: Endgame” depending on different box office benchmarks. OnePlus, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has a hefty endorsement contract with him as well.
