Channing Tatum was the second highest paid actor last year, say what?!

According to Forbes, Robert Downey Jr. was the highest paid actor last year raking in an impressive $75 million between June 2012 and July 2013. The Avengers and Iron Man 3 were Downey's bread and butter, but he deserves it. I was entertained.

I was floored however, that Channing Tatum came in as number 2 on the list. Say what?! Yes, Tatum milked the cougs for all they were worth last year with Magic Mike. The film was co-financed by Tatum and director Steven Soderbergh and cost $7 million to make...and the film grossed over $100 million. Clearly Tatum is not all brawn with no brains. It's an easy guess that a movie about male strippers was going to bring in the bucks. Ladies are pervs, what can I say. According to Forbes Tatum made just over $60 million last year.

Rounding out the top 5 was Hugh Jackman with $55 million, Mark Wahlberg (aka my husband) with $52 million, Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) with $46 million.

If you are shocked at this list, you are not alone. Tatum, The Rock and my husband? Who would have guessed.
