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 former wrestler and "Fast and Furious" star jumped from No. 5 on Forbes' list last year, thanks in part to his starring role in this summer's "Hercules."

"Gravity" helped make Bullock the top-earning woman in Hollywood.

An Oscar-nominated performance in "American Hustle" (2013) catapulted "The Hangover" actor Bradley Cooper to his current status as the third-highest paid actor in the biz.

"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.
Liam Neeson(Credit: AP / Evan Agostini)
We love Neeson as an action hero. Up next for the actor: "Taken 3," coming in 2015.

Fans may not have been pleased with Ben Affleck's casting as Batman, but the actor probably is, considering he's already raking in major dough for "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016).
Christian Bale(Credit: AP)
Affleck's Batman predecessor Christian Bale is following up an Oscar-nominated role in "American Hustle" by playing Moses in Ridley Scott's "Exodus," due out in December.
Jennifer Lawrence(Credit: Lionsgate)
The second highest-earning actress in Hollywood had a great 2013 with "American Hustle" and the second "Hunger Games" film.
Will Smith(Credit: AP / Evan Agostini)
It may not have been a U.S. box-office smash, but Will Smith's 2013 flick "After Earth" brought in $183 million worldwide. More recently, he co-produced the LI-filmed "Annie" remake with Jay Z, which is set for release in December.
Mark Wahlberg(Credit: Andrew Cooper)
Barely hanging on as the 10th highest-paid actor is Mark Wahlberg, who made $20 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.
Jennifer Aniston(Credit: AP)
The popular "Friends" star has taken pay cuts to star in films such as "We're the Millers" but still earns a hefty paycheck from her deals with Vitamin Water and Aveeno.

Ms. Pepper Potts didn't do much film work in 2013, but "Iron Man 3" isn't exactly small budget stuff.
Angelina Jolie(Credit: Getty Images / Leon Neal)
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."

When there's a "Bad Teacher"-type role, who's Hollywood gonna call?
Scarlett Johansson(Credit: Getty Images / Anthony Harvey)
The actress had a varied past year, from art films including "Under the Skin" to big budget superhero fare ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier").

This Oscar winner (and Long Island native) has starred in the new "Star Wars" films and the "Thor" franchise.

The star of Max Mara's fall/winter ad campaign is an A-lister comfortable with Superman ("Man of Steel") and con artists ("American Hustle").

The "Twilight" film series star is still trying to shake Bella with films including "On the Road."
