Coming in at No. 1 for the second consecutive year, this "Iron Man" has starred in multiple top-grossing movies, including "The Avengers" - though he only had a single film in theaters from June 2013 to June 2014: Jon Favreau's "Chef."

"The Wolf of Wall Street" star moved up the list two spots, from No. 6, but he earned the same amount as last year - maybe because Leo wasn't so wolf-like in that film's dealings: He reportedly took a cut on his upfront fee to get the Martin Scorcese film made.

The actor best known as "Thor" joins the list for 2014, largely because of the success of that Marvel film. But Chris Hemsworth has a new and different role coming up, in Michael Mann's thriller "Cyber, " set for an early 2015 release.

Mark Wahlberg

Barely hanging on as the 10th highest-paid actor is Mark Wahlberg, who made million less this year than last. He's still raking in money from his raunchy 2012 comedy, "Ted, " and has a sequel in the works. 2013's "Lone Survivor, " which tells the story of late Navy SEAL Michael Murphy, an LI native, earned $150 million worldwide.

Dropping from the top of the highest-earning actresses list in 2013, Angelina Jolie remains one of the most powerful women in a male-centered Hollywood. Starring in many big-blockbuster films, she took home a big payday for her role in "Maleficent."
