Forbes has released its annual list of the highest-paid celebrities in the world. And if you think you have a grasp on who makes what, it’s time you relieve yourself of that notion.
After two predictable names (Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao) at the top, things get ridiculous quickly. Garth Brooks is at No. 6. James Patterson is at No. 8. David Copperfield is at No. 20.
And so on.
Robert Downey Jr. is the highest-paid actor at No. 8.
If you have the time to click through 100 sides and want to feel incredulous, I highly recommend giving Forbes 100 pageviews. You’ll walk away even more confused than you already were about what people value. And the knowledge that you should have gone into the entertainment industry.
